Description: Situated on the rather swish York Place, close to Leeds mainline railway station, Miah’s Place is an Indian restaurant with a wow factor. Right from the outset you really know that you’re in for something special – the restaurant is set within one of the old red brick buildings, behind wrought iron low fencing, its subtle signage indicating that Miah’s Kitchen, a small scale chain making waves throughout Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, is perhaps a little more special than your average Indian eatery. Through the portico-ed front door you’ll enter a stylish dining room furnished in an unusual Art Deco inspired style, with ball topped lamps, sensuous lines and low slung leather seating, all in low key tones. Miah’s Kitchen offers an extensive menu of old Indian favourites, ranging from tandoori dishes to biryanis and baltis as well as a good collection of specialties created especially for the restaurant, using contemporary and traditional techniques. Surprisingly affordable, Miah’s Kitchen provides an upmarket take on Indian dining without the price tag.

Really pleasant evening, first time here, staff were excellent, very
attentive but not overbearing. Nice atmosphere we had a booth down the side which was nice & cosy, but the overall ambience was good.
Food was excellent, usual menu with a few interesting dishes new to me.
All served on warm plates from piping hot serving bowls. Nice modern,subtle decor all round. Busy but staff were plentiful & coped easily. Def. be returning.

We went here on a groupon deal for lunch we had booked but arrived early to find the place in darkness we retreated to a nearby pub to have a drink and rang them up
We returned and the lights had been put on we were the only customers
We ordered drinks and perused the menu we told the young lady from the outset we were on a groupon deal
We ordered and tried to enjoy the pompadoms but she came back and said because I had ordered a fish curry only the starters were free no we had paid groupon and we had to pay for main course we asked why we couldn't just pay a supplement and it wasn't prawns
Starters came and so did she to say she had to ring her manager just read the voucher two courses for two people and two glasses of wine
Back she came again saying we could pay a supplement by now didn't really want to eat bartering for my lunch is not my idea of fun
We never got the two glasses if wine couldn't go through it all again
So our groupon lunch cost us an extra £40 for the supplements and a bottle of wine
Not the best deal we have had no wonder place was empty

we went to miah's kitchen because of TripAdvisor. It is not far from the station but obviously too far away for tourists to find it.

we were absolutely glad with our desicion: the atmosphere is nice and elegant, the staff very helpful and smiling all the time. and the food was great!

we would go again!

Tried to eat at another restaurant in town but transpires they were closed on Mondays. I was recommended this restaurant by the concierge at a nearby Leeds city centre hotel who admitted that he had never eaten here, but had good reports from others. Good menu with a few new dishes (that is, new to me) and we were not disappointed. Portions generous so Ia dvise you not to over-order as we did.

Food tasty, NOT floating in ghee or oil and attractive to look at too. Fair prices.
Restaurant very quiet on a Monday evening so my companion and I able to converse freely throughout. Will come back.

We have been customers of this restaurant for over 2 years now and we keep on going back. We love the food, the service and the atmosphere.
The food is rich, flavoursome and made with decent sized and good quality meat, which isn't always the case in Indian restaurants. The curry sauces are vibrant and full of character, not to mention they have quite a wide range of them! All of their dishes are a real pleasure to the senses and we haven't found anywhere better in the whole of Leeds, despite trying quite a lot of other places.
Service is attentive and courteous. I like the fact they are very smartly dressed and keep a professional attitude at all times, even when faced with outrageous customers.
Price-wise, it is a little bit more expensive than your usual Indian restaurant. That said, the price they are asking for the delicious food and great experience they provide is only fair and quite cheap, actually! Highly recommended!
