Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited with friends last week for the first time. Chilli paneer starter was likely the best I've ever had, saucy version but not too much and just tasted delicious. Maratha Chicken was awesome and had a great deep heat to it. It's a refreshing take...on Indian cuisine and I would recommend anyone fancying a curry in Leeds to try it.More

AARTI in Leeds stole my heart with its flavorsome dishes and inviting ambiance. From aromatic spices to impeccable service, it's a culinary journey worth savoring. Each bite of their paneer tikka felt like a hug from home. Friendly staff made it an experience to remember....AARTI is now my go-to spot for authentic Indian cuisine.More

Friendly and welcoming restaurant and fabulously attentive team. The menu was varied with new dishes to me, which were very well explained. The food was delicious and one of the best curries I have eaten.

I booked a table on the recommendation of a friend. The food is absolutely amazing, freshly cooked to order, and at the preferred level of mild, medium or spicy. Excellent portion sizes, and great value for money. The staff were very pleasant and attentive, and...all the tables were in use. A very good atmosphere during my dining experience. I'm coming back again with a different friend very soon, and have recommended this fantastic restaurant to to my friends who live in, or visit Leeds.More

We booked Aarti for the first time since they moved from Street Lane. They now open for lunch which is great. As always greeted by the owner who is a lovely lady. The food is really amazing. We have tried every Indian restaurant in Leeds...and the surrounding area and Aarti in our opinion is the best. They always serve fresh food cooked how you like, mild, medium or spicy. We will be back in a few weeks.More

This Indian restaurant is new-ish, but is highly recommended. We were there for an evening meal, and were impressed by the number of vegetarian options, which we view as a sign of south Indian authenticity. The introductory poppadoms came in tubular form, which was a...charming quirk. Thee dishes are a mixture of the usual staples of an Indian restaurant, as well as lesser known options specific to this establishment. We went for the later, and enjoyed a pretty spicy chicken curry, as well as a milder fish option. We'd definitely return the next time we are in Leeds. Well worth a visit!More

I visit Leeds often on business and am on a constant look out for Indian restaurants. I popped in with a few colleagues for lunch and loved it so much that I returned the next day! It is a family venture - the hostess is...very welcoming. Food is excellent- not too spicy/ oily. And they are minutes from the station and offices. Strongy recommend!More
