We’ve found a way to support Leeds’ foodie scene and enjoy a host of exclusive menus in the process.
Eat Leeds Restaurant Week is back for another round of incredible menus that cover everything from a £5 lunch to hearty three course dinners- each with an exciting spin on the classic menus offered at some of Leeds’ favourite restaurants.
Taking place from Monday 20 February 2023 over the course of one week until Sunday 26 February 2023, this foodie-fuelled celebration of Leeds’ favourite spots allows you to taste-test plenty of good grub.
There’s five different price points to look out for: starting at a fiver and working its way up to luxury meals for £25, the idea is that there’s something for everyone.
Food from around the world at every possible budget for those looking to eat out this month- really what more could you ask for?
The process of bagging yourself these exclusive Restaurant Week deals couldn’t be simpler either.
All you have to do is head over to the Eat Leeds website and download your voucher to use in the restaurant itself.
Here’s a few of our top picks that we’ll be taking full advantage of over the week itself.
Zaap Thai will be offering a delectable selection in the city centre. Choose from two courses of authentic Thai cuisine, including the likes of Moo Yang, Thai fish cakes, Pad Thai Bo Ran and green Thai curry- plus a drink of house beer, wine or a soft drink for just £15.
Meanwhile fine-dining restaurant and hotel Dakota is sharing an exclusive menu featuring flavoursome bratwursts, spiced corn-fed chicken, yuzu sorbet, artisan cheese and, our personal choice, a delicious-sounding woodland mushroom tart with black truffle and parmesan. Eat Leeds Restaurant Week is a rare opportunity to get yourself a three course meal here for £25, or two courses for £20 – and judging by the menu it’s worth every penny.
I Am Döner, by contrast, has a £5 kebab menu designed to bring the best of the late night kebab cravings into the daytime – and there’s bags more flavour here than you’ll find in any you’ve tucked into at 3am. Choose from classic doner, chicken, halloumi, falafel or vegan Voner Seitan stuffed with tomato, feta, onion and all the roasted Mediterranean veggies you could imagine.
Instagrammable restaurant Fleur from Masterchef constestant Bobby Geetha will be offering two different menus over the week. Choose from Bang Bang Sticky Chicken Wings or tuck into a chicken keema cheese naan or Californian eggs under a roof of a thousand paper butterflies, it’s simply beautiful (and the food too).
It’s not just the city centre that you can find these exclusive menus either. Over in Kirkstall, Pizza Freak will be treating customers to a £15 two course menu and Aagrah in Chapel Allerton is serving up award-winning Kashmiri cuisine for £25, including drink and side serving.
Banyan in Leeds City Square, Roundhay and Horsforth also has a menu that’s well worth taking advantage of. Mac ‘N’ Cheese with a Marmite crumb is our personal choice but there’s loads to choose from including Korean fried chicken burger, crispy duck baos and the avocado and sumac hummus- and you can grab all this for £15-£20 depending on how many courses you choose.
So clearly no matter what you’re craving, you’ll be more than well fed during Eat Leeds Restaurant Week, and with all sorts of price points, you’re sure to find the perfect eat-out meal that gives you that wonderful full-belly feeling, and support the local Leeds foodie scene at the same time.
