The cafe at Asda @YorksMonksCross is poorly run and best avoided. I *believe* it is now run by large catering organisation Compass on behalf of Asda. Asda need to intervene, the place is at best untidy but at worse dirty (uncleaned surfaces, tables not cleared (despite being quiet) floor filthy under tables. They run out of everything often (how they are selling it I don't know) Spent plates full of food littered everywhere convey how little people have enjoyed it, I've personally not eaten a single thing there I have enjoyed. It's not especially cheap either. You cannot pay contactless as despite having the facility they always say "it crashes the till". The till was open with one staff member questioning another over piles of coins laid about outside the till - odd practices... The supermarket and brand are let down by this facility and need to take it to task.

Been a long, long time since we last visited and we loved it then, loved now. Such a good range of places to look around and eat if you want to. Easy access from city centre for both car and public transport. Worth driving out to if you're staying in the city centre.

Love coming here. There is always something for everyone, whether you want fashion, sport, food or crafts and hobbies. Our main goal today was holiday shopping and managed this successfully at Primark and Boots, but could have wandered around more of the shops if the weather had been better. That is the only downside to shopping here: being open, there is never really total coverage when walking from shop to shop if the weather is bad. Still love coming here though.

Good parking facility. Plenty of space to walk in a large group. Lots of shops available and they all had good stock.

We don't really come here that often as we feel the various shops are diverse enough. We like more of a range, that's said it's really well set out and is easy enough to get to.
