In Leeds for a couple of days research into old cinemas. Found the Nawaab. One of the best curries I've ever had. Incredible flavours. Returned the next day. Also very attentive and friendly staff. Will be back when next in Leeds.

I have eaten here over the years and this place is always consistently good. The food is great and the waiting staff very friendly. This visit I had the chicken tikka starter and lamb biryani. It was excellent. I’ll definitely be back here.

We visited this establishment as our hotel was nearby. It looks smart but it is noisy when busy. We struggled to talk to each other. Also, I was given a drink I hadn't ordered because of a communication problem. In respect of the food, it...More
