Further Information

The eponymous Hansa Dabhi has been a trailblazer since she opened her North Street doors in 1986. Leeds, and frankly the rest of Yorkshire, has been benefitting from her innovative vegetarian food ever since. Dabhi blends traditional Gujarati Indian flavours with a sprinkling of influences from her childhood spent in the East of Africa. Crowned Leeds curry chef of the year in 2010 and a host of other accolades to boot has secured Hansa’s places as a mainstay in the Yorkshire dining scene.

When Hansa Dabhi opened a Gujarati, vegetarian-only restaurant on a quiet corner of North Street in Leeds, back when Thatcher was still in office, the dining scene was a different place. By now, vegetarianism is mainstream and there are plenty of places offering great veggie-friendly options, but more than 25 years ago things were completely different. It is a testament to the excellent Indian and Gujarati food and service at Hansa’s that the restaurant has not just survived, but thrived and shaped local preferences in this time. Head over to Hansa’s every evening from 5pm for excellent food and a taste of the extraordinary in Leeds.

We had been to Hansa's many years ago, not sure why we left it so long to return! The food and the service were excellent. Our party chose individual starters and main courses, but there was also an option for a banquet for larger groups which looked to be very good value for money. The platter of mixed starters was a good way to sample a variety of dishes, I particularly enjoyed the chilli paneer and the patra dishes. My main course was the Ful Kobi, a cauliflower curry which was excellent.

Probably like a lot of meat-eaters, I wouldn't normally consider a vegetarian restaurant as a viable option for eating out, but I'm glad I did in this case. The food was absolutely amazing. And whilst I wasn't entirely sure what the chilli paneer was, it seemed like a close proximity to chicken! But when you have food this flavoursome and interesting, the lack of meat isn't an issue. The service was excellent, the restaurant's fully licensed, good atmosphere . . . so yeah. I would definitely come back here.

Hadn't been to Hansa's for several years but it was still as good as we remembered it. We chose the Surprise meal for 4 and received a great selection of varied dishes . Portions were just right size for us and the Kulfi was gorgeous.

Fantastic food, great service, a wonderful evening. We had Campari cocktails, Hansa's Surprise for our dinner and a very nice bottle of champagne. The food was light, spicy, well-presented and delicious. We'll definitely be returning!
