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 Restaurant came on the scene in 1973, the heady days of the red flock wallpaper and prevalent culture of a late night vindaloo melt down.

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.
