This is probably the finest restaurant in Leeds. The food is consistently exceptional and unique. The service is friendly, helpful and efficient. I cannot give more praise to a Tharavadu ! Never close your doors, please.

Tried here a couple of weeks ago and I have to say what an experience. Firstly this isn't your normal Indian. The menu is unrecognizable to a normal Indian restaurant. But I can guarantee it will have something for everyone. Massive portions of excruciatingly tasty...More

This is the first time I have visited this restaurant and, to state the obvious, it won’t be the last. Every mouthful of every course was brilliant. As there were only two of us we had a fish and a chicken starter and a beef...More

See title. Absolutely superb and, apart from the breads, mostly gluten free. The small percentage of poor reviews were clearly made by people visiting a _different_ restaurant and not this one. Don't hesitate to try this place.

Sorry for the delay in replying. We could cater to birthday parties in the restaurant and as we expanded the restaurant we could easily do large parties by its own. To keep the high quality of food and service standards we... More
