Was a lovely place, and great food. Was a bit disappointed with the offer of few vegetarian sides... not a good place if you don’t like sweep potato chips. Very loud as well... cocktails were great

Food was excellent. Wait time was abysmal. Arrived at 7:00 for 7:00 booking. Food arrived at 8:00. Took 20mins for drinks to arrive. Not impressed.

I would recommend Almost Famous if their service were not so poor.

Another excellent trip to AF. I’m making my way through the menu and so far not found anything I don’t like! Had kids with me this time and went down well with them too. Friendly staff too.

The woman on reception forgot to seat us which meant we were left waiting for a very long time and had to remind her to seat us. Then we were told we couldn’t have milkshakes. Then a number of other tables got milkshakes. We questioned them on this and they said we couldn’t have a milkshake because they had a hen party in. My husband complained because if they had seated us and not forgotten about us we would have been seated before the hen party and all the other tables that got a milkshake. They did make us one eventually but this ruined our experience. The toilets were filthy and there was no toilet roll.

The staff were rude, we waited 15 minutes until they came and asked us for drinks then another for food and then we was waiting 40 minutes for our food. We then asked for the bill waited 10 minutes until someone else came over and asked us if we wanted the bill and we told him we asked ages ago and he didn’t even apologise. The food was nice but the staff ruined it for me and made me feel uncomfortable and the music is way too loud in there.

Went for a birthday meal on the 9/03, we have been many times before as it one of my favourite restaurants in Leeds. Usually get the chicken burger and it’s usually really nice. It was overly spicy(and I like spicy food)and the chicken was over cooked and the outside of the chicken was too hard and it was missing bits that were supposed to be on it, when it’s never been like that all the other times I’ve had it, as it’s usually the best chicken burger I’ve ever had! First cocktail I received was warm I had to ask for ice and it took 20 minutes for us to get them. Staff were nice but service is slow and seems like the food is going downhill, hopefully it was just a bad day as I love this place.

Fab casual place hidden away down Great George St. Creative burgers to die for and boozy milkshakes. Eat here and you will struggle to find a more adventurous burger anywhere. Always a winner.

We had a 50 minute wait for food at lunchtime, despite having pre-booked and there being only 2 other tables occupied. Service was VERY slow. There appeared to be only 1 member of staff working during the first hour we were there, even though we could see other staff sat down and chatting in the back room. When another member of staff did eventually come out to take our payment at the end, she was grumpy and didn't even apologise for our delayed service. Food was good when it eventually arrived but by the time it was too little too late!

It was a busy time on Saturday but I still expected to be served food within half an hour. We waited nearly an hour for food and it wasn't up to the same standard as we've had previously. I do love the food here so would recommend, but not on a Saturday night.

Really disappointed with the food, it wasn’t very warm in honesty. It tasted OK, but I was let down. Once we finished (around 5pm) the waiting staff must have changed over because we waited for our cheque for over 20 minutes before we had to go find somebody. Unfortunately I won’t ve returning.

The food was delicious. It was warm and tasty. But it took forever to get our food. Our reservation was for 8pm and we didn’t get our food until 9:20pm. By this point we were no longer hungry. I understand a small wait when it’s busy but it took them 25 minutes to take our order in the first place and then almost an hour from that point for food. Double what would be expected. A real shame. As I stated above, cannot fault the food!

Great food as always. I understand that the restaurant was quite busy but customer service wasn't on point. Would have been nice to feel a bit more welcome and given recommendations/a smile? Maybe it was just a busy day, but in future will probably head over to Meat Liquor instead.

Still, good food and great value!

The food here is amazing and it’s the best burger in town. But the service really needs to improve - may as well order a new drink when the first one is delivered as it’s a minimum 30 mins wait

The buttermilk chicken burger I had was excellent - chicken was crispy and not at all soggy. Chipotle and jalapeno mayo & avocado were perfect accompaniments. Chips were nice and you got plenty. Good choice of soft drinks as well - root beer was awesome. If I had one complaint, it would be the length of time it took before anyone came to take our order, and for the food to come, but it was fairly busy at the time

Staff were quick to get us seated but it took a while for our order to be taken. It was then a long time before our drinks arrived, and two of our party of six were told their chosen drinks were unavailable. When it came to the food, again two of our party were told their choices were unavailable (one person didn't get the food or the drink they wanted). The food took quite a long time to come and when it did one of the orders was wrong. They fixed it and the food itself was nice but the poor service and lack of availability put a dampener on the experience.

Went during the 50% off burgers and still ended up paying £11 for a burger and a milkshake without any sides. Was really good but would never pay full price.

Burger was tasty - although I'm not sure about the names for the burgers. Mine came with candyfloss on top, which was a) a surprise b) incongrouous to all other ingredients.
Would have been good to know that there was +40 minute wait on food when ordering.

Lovely food as always. Good music and good portions - you'd never leave empty. Reasonably priced for a city centre even if slightly harder to find that some places. 10/10 recommend if you're in the mood for a burger

The food is great but the service is very poor and varies dramatically. The food took so long to arrive we had to pack some of it up in takeout boxes as we were out of time to be able to enjoy our meal.
