About Star Meze & Grill

The best thing about Mediterranean cuisine is that it’s always fresh and you always feel fantastic after you’ve eaten it. It gets even better still when you make it Persian Mediterranean as that’s even more of a guarantee of booming flavour. The people of Leeds, and more specifically, Kirkstall, then, are lucky that Star Meze & Grill is right on their doorstep. Yep, this family-run restaurant is nestled on Burley Road and locals go wild for hot and cold meze as well as platters made up of both. It’s damn good stuff here. Probably some of the best in Kirkstall, in fact.

Very friendly staff, good value for money and very easy food! Managed to get street parking right outside of the restaurant. The menu was incorrect but the waitress apologised and rectified this on ordering, afterwards they gave us complimentary rose tea and coconut bites to apologise for the incorrect menu and also because it was our first experience of Persian food and they wanted it to be a positive one.

The food was lovely and there was plenty of choice. The staff were friendly and helpful. We visited at a quiet time but the surroundings were pleasant. Would definitely go again next time we visit Headingley.
