I can't wait for this place to open again. As a self confessed foodie, I'm fairly picky about curry. I've always had a well flavoured dish here- not just spicy, actually tasty too.

I know that Sheesh Mahal was badly affected by the floods at the beginning of the year, and wish them well for the future. I have eaten here many times in the past, and the food and service has always been excellent. I just wish I lived nearer!

Not open due to flood damage--answer phone says it will reopen in June or July 2016 --so I wouldn't try going unless you want a long wait

i have dined here twice now and on both times been looked after. Interior is dated but i suppose this adds to the authenticity, Food is nice and the service a little slow but adequate. Location is good bieng on the cusp of the city centre,

Always friendly and always tasty food. Located on the outskirts of Leeds this Indian restaurant is well worth a visit. Good value and great quality.

The best curries I've had in Leeds have been had here. Great portion sizes and great service. The bhuna, dopiaza and korma curries are always delicious, korma in particular not being too sweet. I've visited with spice fanatics and those who rarely eat curry due to spice-phobia and we've always left more than satisfied.
