We visited Fairuz for my brother's birthday. I had been before years ago and remembered enjoying the food. First up the outside is uninspiring and more could be done here but the inside is really nicely decorated and we soon forgot where we were. This time we all ordered starters and gave everything a try. All the starters were delicious,... More

This restaurant was my son's choice for his birthday & I was curious as I hadn't experienced the Lebanese cuisine before. I have to say it was really good & surpassed my expections. You have to get over the fact that the restaurant is a bit unprepossessing from the outside as it's in the bottom of Fairfax House, a bland... More

We visited this restaurant as we were told it was a "hidden gem" that looked run down from the outside but the food was wonderful... The outside is pretty terrible hidden in an alley but we decided to give it a go. The owner/waiter/chef recommended a Lebanese wine which was a 2000 red with 14.5% ABV @ £19.95. When the... More

Great little restaurant with great service. Wine from the Beka valley (in Lebanon) was exceptional and worth the visit alone! Tasty meze such as humus, sujuk and tabuli. Had the mixed grill but the star part was the lamb which was melt in the mouth. Something a little different from your standard restaurant which Leeds definitely needs!

Indeed Fairuz restaurant is the place for delicious Lebanese food , the things that bothers you are the location ,interior decoration & most important the high price for regular food portions We met the owner/chef&waiter Mr.Rushdi who's a lovely person & gives an honest advice. Hopefully I'll come again & things would be changed (3 stars for food only) Good... More

I have to admit to doesn't look much from the outside but once sat in the dining area I could be forgiven for forgetting I was in Leeds. However it was the food that blew me away...we had the chef's meze between three of us and the starters which consisted of about 7 different dishes to eat with bread. Each... More

We met another couple here for a meal one evening on their choice so I didn't know what to expect. Fairuz is in a little bit of a sorry state, desperately needing some TLC. It's very quirky and I don't think you would find another place like it in Leeds. My food was OK but others said it was excellent... More

For the third time I've eaten here. In a very unassuming location it is I think one of a kind in here in Leeds. I've taken friends each time and they've enjoyed it. It's nice for something different to the usual choices in Leeds. The front of house is as far as I can tell, also the chef and waiter... More

After working very close to this restaurant for many years I finally ate here tonight with friends and we all really enjoyed it. It's hidden away on the corner of Wade Lane and doesn't look particularly inviting (it could do with the windows being washed and there's some odd, old curtains up that look a bit out of place) but...

First Lebanese I've found that's actually authentic. Absolutely amazing food. No frills, but really doesn't need it!
