This place appears to be closed. It is (was) one of my favourite places and hasn’t been open for a few weeks now. Such a shame. I would advise phoning to check before traveling. I pass there almost daily so if it does open again...More

Been to Kaveris numerous times since Feb 2017. Eveytime, the food in exceptional and tasty. We also attend most of the functions / events if catering is provided by Kaveris. Service is exceptional as well. Veg Briyani is my best dish :)

For a city centre restaurant this place needs updating inside. It doesn't feel modern and classy. Service was adequate. Food was tasty but my curry had far too much gravy and not enough meat. Left me disappointed. Won't rush backMore

A resilience of passion and a devotion to food, paired with award winning chefs and young but knowledgeable staff is what Kaveri's is about. The husband wife team of Ram and Alli have realised their aspirations and put together a team of chefs to present a unique menu comprising of the best what the South and North of India has to offer. From the Chettinad, Malabar and Andhra cuisines of the South to the mellow Kashmiri, balanced Mughlai and fiery Rajasthani fare of the North. Vegetarians have well been taken care of with an array of preparations to suit both the purse and the palate. We welcome you to come and experience the aromas Awadhi Nawabs and rural Sivagangai (Tamilnadu,India) amidst subtle settings in the heart of Leeds.
