Leeds is at the heart of the Indian restaurant scene in the UK – West Yorkshire is home to thousands of migrants from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, of course – and they provide a great variety of dishes and delicacies that reflect the very best that the subcontinent has to offer. At Miah’s Kitchen, they specialise in tandoor-cooked kebabs and tikka meats, an array of starters and sides that accompany the mains, and all the curries that have become so beloved of the British public. You can find them on York Place in the city centre, just a short walk from Leeds Central train station, so you’ve really no excuse not to head on over – just book a table first.
The Indian restaurants of Leeds differ wildly in aims and in quality, from the neighbourhood curry house to upmarket fine dining establishments, from takeaway kebab joints to humble cafes. Miah’s Kitchen is all of these things combined: they offer take out, for sure, but when you make your way down to York Place, you are going to want to stay and take in the ambience and atmosphere in this part of the city centre.
Miah’s Kitchen offers a superb array of starters – seekh kebabs, chicken tikka, pakoras – and the full range of curries that are expected from the hungry diners of Leeds. Add to that a selection of house specials that take advantage of the diversity of Indian cuisine: we recommend the Balti or Biryani dishes, which are superlative. Make the journey to Leeds Central station and wander around the corner to York Place in the city centre for one of the finest Indian meals around.
Easy to book, no problems on arrival, would book this way again. Nice restaurant - must admit, front of house not as friendly as normal, but food amazing.
The food was delicious, with an extensive choice. Service was excellent and prompt, and the waiter was very helpful in making the changes to our order which we requested!
Amazing food. Lovely atmosphere. Very busy but the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this place to everyone visiting Leeds. Prices very reasonable too
Excellent food and service at a reasonable price. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Leeds. Nice friendly atmosphere with helpful polite and attentive staff.
We have been To this restaurant before and always been highly satisfied with both the service and the food. However this time the service was exceptionally slow, we waited an hour after the popadums before getting our starters. Having said that manageress Lisa couldn't apologise enough and we were given a bottle of wine for the inconvenience. The food as always was excellent.
The restaurant was understaffed and it took an age to be served. There was 6 of us at the table and whilst the taste of the sauces was very nice, the chicken was really tough and just not good. Finally, the toilets are disgusting and then generally tells a lot about a restaurant
As always an excellent meal and very polite staff. Good choice of menu and plenty of choice. It is in an excellent position and deserves support.
The food was lovely and the staff were extremely friendly and polite I did't feel rushed either. I would recommend to anyone who wants to dine in a nice relaxed atmosphere
Good service and lovely food. There is Always a very good variety of dishes - for all tastes including vegetarian. Can recommend the wine list too.
My previous visit to this restaurant was excellent so we returned, however this time the incorrect food was delivered twice and all plates were chipped without exception, this I could live with. The absolute worst we witnessed was the waiter taking a jug of mint raita sauce directly from our table to another diners table, luckily it had not been used. I wont be returning.
