How’s your Arab coming along? Slow? Here’s a word for you to learn and keep in mind: Shabab is Arab for ‘pinnacle’ or youthfulness. And wouldn’t you know it – there’s so much for you to try and taste and have the friendly staff recommend you. Because Shabab Restaurants came on the scene in 1973, the heady days of the red flock wall paper and prevalent culture of a late night vindaloo melt down. Catering for the discerning diners who were on the look out for a dining experience combining authentic food, exotic surroundings and the very best eastern hospitality, Shabab in Leeds has to this day maintained excellent service and perfect Indian cuisine.
Over the last thirty plus years Shabab’s richly decorated, authentic interiors and a range of mouth watering freshly prepared recipes have made them stand out from the ever increasing crowd of so called Indian eateries that look and taste the same. Shabab’s a-la-carte menu has continuously evolved over the years, with an emphasis on remaining authentic and close to the way meals are prepared in typical Asian domestic kitchens. The restaurant on Albion Street in Leeds use the very best ingredients from local suppliers and do not use any artificial colourings or ready made pastes.
Always a joy to eat are Shebab . Staff are always attentive and the food is of the highest quality. I had the haleem soup which was truly delicious. I had a kanu as main it was a stunning mixture of flavours with chicken mango and cashew nuts Finished off with a heavenly Gulub Japan A really excellent meal.
Fantastic food and staff - very busy as a result so book early and don't be cross if you have a short wait for a table -it will be well worth it.
Great atmosphere, first class service, fantastic food, best we have had in a long time, looking forward to returning the next time we visit Leeds
Love coming here, the food and service are excellent. We like to come early doors on a Saturday tea time after shopping in Leeds. Great end to a perfect day
This is the first time we have visited Shabab since it has been located in Bishopsgate, Leeds, (we went many years ago when it was in Eastgate) and we are so pleased that we went. My husband and I were both very impressed with the food which was delicious and we really enjoyed the lovely atmosphere and surroundings in the restaurant. The service was very good with friendly and efficient staff, and we were pleasantly surprised when we received our bill which we thought was very reasonable. We will definitely be back.
When thinking of going out for a curry I would wholeheartedly recommend the Shabab. I've eaten at all the well known curry houses in both Leeds and Bradford and none can match the Shabab. Great food , great service and good value for money.
Food excellent service a little slow certain staff seemed confused we ordered a bottle of wine with our meal we had to ask for it twice as it was still at the bar waiter said we wondered which table this belonged to my wife ordered a sweet from one waiter we waited for ages then another waiter came to see if she was enjoying her sweet which she did not have ,my wife ordered Banana split to which the second waiter said we don't have that so why did the first waiter take her order ?? so we did not bother ,Think certain waiters need a wake up call they were quick to bring us the BILL Though,as I said the food is fab some of the best indian food in Leeds good atmosphere we will definitely be coming back as we live in and work in Leeds.
I love this place. From the amazing Indian wooden chased panels, subdued lighting and embroidered umbrellas decorating the ceiling to the authentic tastes of India. The enormous family Naan hung on a spike in the centre of the table allows all the guests to rip off as much as they want. I had a meat platter which had 5 small bowls of different curries a starter and a sweet . From the succulent lamb Achai to a sweet chicken Korma. It was a shame some of the sweet menu was not available but the Gulub Jaman and home made Kulfi Ice cream were really tasty . Definitely recommended.
If you're looking for a nice Indian meal in Leeds, look no further than Shabab. We were there for New Years eve and it didnt dissappoint. Lovely food and we had the lovely Corina looking after us. It's not the first time we've been and it wont be the last.
I booked the table for eight people for 20:00 via the Quandoo web site (which was very easy to do I might add) and when we got there we had to wait for ten minutes as it was very busy and every table was taken. When we finally sat down we had popudums and pickle tray and drinks which was quite nice although they took 15 minutes to come. I thought I would have a couple of starters as a change - big mistake - the onion bhaji that came first you needed to have concrete teeth as the batter was so hard and the second starter (which came when the other people has their mains) was billed as a unique taste experience and was awful. It was just a spicy soup which left a very bad aftertaste and I can't remember what it was called. I should have bypassed starters and just had a main course as the rest of my party said the food was very nice so my fault doing that but you really shouldn't go wrong ordering just starters. I don't think a return trip will be happening any time soon.
The Shabab had a good atmosphere and setting when we arrived around 9pm. The starters were fine, but but the main curry's of about half our party were pretty poor and we have eaten at a great number of restaurants over many years. In fairness to the manager he knocked one of the mains off the bill, but on balance there are better offerings elsewhere in Leeds and we are not likely to return. In addition one of our party got curry stains on their clothes from the chair they were sat on.
Booked for 7.00pm, waited over half an hour to be seated, which wasn't pleasant as I walk with a stick and have difficulty standing for that long. Once seated, tried to give us wrong drinks order and tried to give our food to the next table. Our starters were fine but our main courses were luke warm and mediocre at best. Mid meal drinks order brought only 3 of the 4 drinks ordered. Asked if we wanted coffee or desserts and as soon as we said no thank you they asked us to leave as they wanted the table. Felt unwelcome from beginning to end really. This was 36 years to the day of my first date with my husband to the Shabab (on Eastgate) which used to be fab, will never go again.
it was for my wife's birthday, from start to finish excellent meal, friendly service, & quality of food with a non heart stopping bill at the end of a three course meal, ltr of wine and drinks@)) we are from north Wales and we were in Leeds for just two days, but ever visiting Leeds in the future again would most definitely use this establishment and highly recommend to other , thankyou
Shabab was very friendly with great service, Which on what I can only imagine been the busiest night (valentines) the service was second to none and all food prepared fresh to order.
Staff were lovely and very well mannered. The food was brilliant. I highly recommend Shabab to anybody who comes to visit Leeds. It was also very affordable
Went to Shaba's yesterday after work we had a table booked for 6.30 but was seated earlier. Staff were very pleasant and the food was amazing. We all had a vindaloo so much flavour but it is very HOT!! would highly recommend and will return for another visit at some point... 10/10
Fantastic food, service, atmosphere, & value for money as always. Really enjoyed the whole evening. Cannot wait for the next time we visit the Shabab.
not been to Shabab for a few years. I was impressed, Food excellent, service very good especially as it was a busy Friday evening Will be going back
Early meal before going to the Arena for a show. Great service and food was outstanding - the only thing that stopped me giving full marks was that the place was being cleaned and staff were walking through the restaurant with bags of rubbish - not best sight during our starters. But will come back.
Visited this restaurant twice now and on both occasions me and my family have really enjoyed the food the service and the surroundings, even my 8 year old granddaughter loves it I would highly recommend shabab would be a great venue for big parties too
An excelent meal, location and staff. The pickle tray was tasty and nice to nibble on whilst perusing the menu. We shared starters which were all enjoyable with a nice kick. Then my main, lamb on the bone, was delicious. Really tasty although it was milder than expected. Great meal all around.
Very accommodating restartaurant with excellent service and good food. Menu was varied and good value for money. Would highly recommend Shabab to anyone + +
Very welcoming and friendly. The service was fantastic. Food was excellent. I have been about 6 times now and they are still very consistant. Would recommend to anyone, one of the best in Leeds city centre in my opinion.
I and my friends had a great experience, we were well looked after by courteous and attentive staff despite it being an obviously busy night. The food was of good portions and very tasty, will definitely visit again
Unfortunately the service at the bar was appalling.The table service was better but dealt with several service staff rather than just the one and struggled to catch the attention of any of them, almost as if they were trying to ignore you! However , the food was good.
it was my first visit with my family and certainly won't be the last. The service was excellent and the food was just magnificent. I shall look forward to going again.
Fantastic place to eat. Friendly efficient staff and delicious food. Best Dhal anywhere. I have been several times and it is always amazing. Good location too, right by the train station.
The atmosphere was lovely athough a little dark to read the menu as it was on dark card. The food was gorgeous and the staff very friendly attentive and helpful
Food good, service good. Would definitely use again. We were in a party of 6 we all had different meals and everyone enjoyed. Pleased to see the restaurant was busy from early in the evening.
Great food, great service and nice surroundings. The matter shazlik starter is probably the best I have ever had! I've been twice now and would definitely go again.
Excellent surroundings and decor , delicious food with great service from great people that can not do enough for you. A little pricey but well worth it .

excellent, food great menu, very attentive staff and not rushed to leave, highly recommended we had a party of 6 for a family birthday fantastic
My only niggle is that the restaurant is dimly lit which made reading the menu challenging, but the food was amazing. Best Chicken Pakora ever!
We loved the food. Would recommend the seafood starter for two. Very good service. The staff were helpful and friendly. Would definitely eat there again.
Lovely friendly atmosphere, great selection of dishes. Food always spot on and service 2nd to none. Always my 1st choice Indian Restaurant when in Leeds.
Fantastic prompt, service, atmosphere & choice/quality of food. There was a 8 of us & everyone agreed...even the vegan! Can't wait for the next visit
Good food, nice restaurant. A return visit as had previously enjoyed a meal here, and was not disappointed. Prices are also very reasonable. Busy even on a Sunday night.
Usual excellent service and food. Nothing more needs to be said but unfortunately there is a minimum word count of twenty five words on this review hence my waffling...
Good food, good service, would recommend , always one to try when in Leeds. Don't like paying for pickle tray though, it should come as part of the poppadoms
