Food and service were just spot on, would definitely recommend. It’s nice to have a well priced local Indian that differs from your ‘run of the mill’ standard curries.
Love the food here! A smaller menu than a lot of Indian restaurants but all the dishes are amazing. Love the aloo chat!!
A lovely restaurant for a casual get together with family and friends. The service is excellent with friendly staff who are happy to recommend their favourite dishes. The menu is not vast but there is great variety and some less known dishes are on the menu. It is very good value and suitable for all ages.
My fourth visit to this delightful restaurant which serves Indian street food, it's limited menu strikes the right balance between offering enough choice to cater for most people whilst ensuring every dish they turn out is done to perfection.
Highly recommended for both its food and beer selection, serving many distinct craft beers.
Food was delicious - a little bit different from most Indian restaurants in England and, with a shorter menu, each dish was individually cooked. Service was swift and attentive. We were glad we booked for Saturday night. The restaurant was buzzy but the decor was very plain - perhaps in keeping with the "street food" angle, but I would have appreciated some visual interest.
Second visit. Loved the food but didn't find the waiter's advice about the spicy heat of the food (really not that hot!) that helpful.
Fabulous food. Great service and ambiance. The nicest Indian food I've had ever!! Will definitely be returning to sample more of the menu.
The Cat's Pyjamas is every bit the Indian restaurant Headingley has been lacking for some time. Often quite busy but worth the wait, with a smaller more specialised menu than traditional curry houses. Excellent craft beer rotated on tap and lovely staff. Great meal out highly recommended
Great food, great beer, great service. Our waiter was very personable and we had a great evening.
not a massive menu but what was available was a good choice. Different to your normal " Indian " menu & restaurant, very authentic tasting dishes, spicy but not over powering. Décor basic & rustic but clean, then again, it's the food that you go for. Will certainly go again.
I loved the food; it tasted really different from any other 'curry' houses I have been to before. I didn't feel overly full and so felt that I could really enjoy the quality of the different tastes and textures that were on offer.
A wonderful evening - great food - really different choices. Staff really helpful and efficient. Will definitely be back to sample other options
Had an excellent meal, good and attentive service and ambience
Visited the restaurant with friends for New years eve. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly, polite, helpful and efficient.
The menu has a great variety of indian street food type dishes and as a vegan who usually struggles there wete quite a few dishes to choose from. Also some dishes could be adapted to be made vegan. The food was excellent. Overall a great dining experience. Would recommend and will visit again soon.
New Years dinner
Excellent service and food as usual. Moved things around to accommodate a table of 9 at the last minute.
Very good service and the staff were happy.
Great food as always. Attentive service, great value, would recommend.
Been a few times and really enjoyed the food, not quite as good as bundobust but closer, but now they have a new menu, which is pretty poor in comparison.
Menu seems to be more basic, less interesting, and one dish came out a bowl of spinach pureed to baby food consistency with a few paneer cubes floating in it. Didn't have more than a mouthful of it
Shame really as it was a good local interesting curry with a nice beer selection
At last ,a reason for non students to go into Headingley!!!
Great food,service and beer
"Neighbour hood gem" indeed plus you can then finish off at Whites!
This is a return visit and it was just as good. The staff are engaging delivering a quick Service, the food was well flavoured and a good sized portion.
Excellent, would recommend very highly.
lovely delicious food, good variety of authentic food. staff knowledge of food very good. really enjoyed our night.
Fabulous food! The place is quite basic and rustic and not overly comfortable but the food was fantastic and the staff very friendly and helpful.
The food was delicious but the service was shockingly bad
Very basic décor upstairs. Busy and compact. Tasty food. Down to earth!
The food was fantastic, the service was spotty and they have charged me twice on my card after assuring me that it only went through once. To reiterate, the food was amazing.
A friend recommended I try this out as the food was "really good" and I have to say we were not disappointed she also told us to book as it gets quite busy. The menu is not huge but enough to choose from and what they offer is done well. The staff were attentive and friendly, explaining dishes and recommending, the speed of service was just right . We had pickles and popadom a starter of onion bhajis each and really only needed one between us, one needs to think tapas and get a couple of plates to share although our waitress did mention tapas/ small plates it didn't sink in! This followed by a rogan josh and a chicken in coriander well flavoured, good sized portions with the best nann bread I have ever had.
There are a selection of guest /craft beers available. Full marks also for the decor, the only place to eat Indian street food is in the street!
This is definitely a place I will be returning to.
Consistently good food & service . One of our favourite places to eat in headingley
The beer selection is varied with a lot of good options for people that enjoy craft beer. There is a good selection of vegetarian meals on the menu and new Indian meals you don't usually see at your regular Indian restaurant. Definitely worth a visit.
Excellent food adding delicate flavour and nuanced tastes to Indian cuisine
The amitsari fish was one of the best starters I've had anywhere, and the mango beer goes down so easy! Best Indian I've had in Leeds.
Food wonderful, a real change to your usual Indian Cuisine, highly recommend
Brilliant! Always love eating here. Wonderful food and friendly staff
Simply one of the best Indian restaurants on the planet. Great food, fabulous service and convivial atmosphere!
The Goan chicken cafreal was quite possibly the best curry I have ever tasted, an opinion shared by my companions, as we all had the same dish. The service was excellent and, when we asked for a table away from the door, the request was met very graciously. Staff were polite and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.
The food was good and it was nice to have a menu that was a little more imaginative than the run of the mill. Unfortunately , in spite of booking ahead, we were given a table by the door and did not enjoy the drafts on the many occasions the door was open on a November evening.
Starters were delicious. Choice of mains is limited though we enjoyed what we had . Very good for vegetarians . Would definitely recommend a visit .
We were seated promptly, albeit by the cold front door. The service was attentive and the food was excellent. A large selection of ales, unfortunately I like a lager and there weren't many to choose from. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent curries. Beers not as good as before - not very smooth and a little too cold.
The menu provided a good range of options for all tastes. The food itself was excellent and i'd recommend it to anyone. My only suggestion is that you need to book as it very popular and busy, which is a good sign. Looking forward to going again and trying something different. Good selection of beer too.
