3 of us arrived early and chose the #15.95 2 course evening menu. The burgers were good without being memorable but the New York cheesecake was poor. While some tables were served promptly we had to wait unnecessarily long time for each stage of the meal. In particular it took ages and several requests to obtain our bill. There are much better places to eat in Leeds.

Being a week day the restaurant wasn’t busy at all only a couple of tables were being served.

I was told straight away there was no calamari. I can understand if the restaurant was fully booked and customers kept ordering that dish but I was simply not the case. The kitchen didn’t replenish their fridge or freezer!
I was offered prawn cocktail which was nice and the first time in my life I was served warm prawns with cold salad and Marie Rose sauce. Anyway the starter tasted nice.

My main was spaghetti with meat balls and that was simply plain tasteless tomato sauce with a heavy hand of black pepper.

I had the Panama cota for dessert and that was very nice and the fresh fruit was very complimentary to the dish.

The meal offer is priced very well but the food isn’t to Marco Pierre White’s standard. It is nice but plain. The service staff were very nice and friendly.

Slow food - No apology for having to wait 45 mins for a starter. Average food at best, arrogant staff, not really a good experience at all. Won't be going back here again.
