143 menus in Leeds lunch, restaurant and takeaway menus
Considered the ‘capital’ of the county of West Yorkshire, Leeds has to have one of the largest choices of shopping areas in the country, with no less than 5 major shopping centres which house a huge choice of restaurants, bars, cafes and nightspots.
For casual but top class French food, try Kendells, located near the main bus and train depot. Enjoy their relaxed atmosphere and fresh approach to their menu. Leeds is also abundant with ‘chain’ restaurants and cafes of which you are spoilt for choice. The streets of Chapeltown and Harehills are home to the Leeds Carnival, a fabulous West Indian street carnival with processions, Caribbean floats and dress, and many street food stalls along the way, not unlike the famous Notting Hill Carnival in London. As a university town with a large campus, very cheap bars and eateries are located throughout the city and its environs. New addition to the scene is the Trinity Kitchen, boasting 8 restaurants that were previously street carts that have come inside to an authentic warehouse style brick building. Vietnamese from Pho is wonderful, and as a complete contrast, you could have afternoon tea including toffee apple cake from The Marvellous Tea Dance Company – a true kaleidoscope of restaurant delights from this mix of places to eat.
Indian restaurants and takeaways are easy to find in Leeds but some of the best food and service is to be had at Aagrah, who have two restaurants, one in the city centre and one near Clarence Dock.
If you enjoy theatre or musical theatre, Leeds has two really well known playhouses,both having been featured in television programmes and featuring opera, music concerts and dramatic performances. Jamie’s Italian Restaurant is only a few minutes walk away so you can enjoy food by this world famous chef either as early dining or late dining after a theatre visit. Great deals on 2 and 3 course menus.
