Jino’s Thai Cafe, in the northwestern Leeds suburb of Headingley, is the local go-to for informal and friendly Thai dining. Here a warm space on Otley Road welcomes diners in for quick lunches or full-on feasts composed of authentic Thai cuisine of the kind typical of the street cafes of Bangkok. Simple, delicate, and balanced, the dishes on offer at Jino’s Thai Cafe are exactly as fans of the food expect, and are bound to make newcomers to this popular Southeast Asian cuisine restaurant loyalists in no time.
Great food, really tasty and enjoyed by everyone in the group. Quick service for a large group of 10. Bring your own drinks always a bonus!
Great food, lovely service. Really authentic and no fuss. We all had a great time, the bring your own booze is a good touch. Would recommend
Brilliant Food and environment, not for people with claustrophobia. But a very enjoyable experience with friendly staff who were more than happy to bring us cups and bottle openers for the drinks that we brought
When the Headingley neighbourhood of Leeds is blessed by good weather, the good folks at Jino’s Thai Cuisine lay out streetside tables for cafe-style al fresco dining so you can enjoy your meal while you watch the world go by along Otley Road. When the weather is not so gracious – and let’s face it, it can be decidedly ungracious – this Thai restaurant’s interior is a great place to escape the gloom and indulge in some exotic and tropical Thai food that’s as kind to the wallet as it is to the appetite.
While Jino’s Thai Cafe is unlicensed, you’re welcome to bring your own bottles of beer and wine in from the nearby Headingley Sainsbury’s supermarket to complement your meal. Grab a good white and order up the gaeng ped or gaeng kiew wan, classic Thai red or green curries with tiger prawns, or bring a friend and tuck into a set meal for two (the Orchid and vegetarian Lotus options are superb) covering appetisers and main courses – some of the best Thai in the Leeds area.
