Been on a few occasions and been disappointed each time if the toilets aren’t dirty with no loo roll and/or soap the staff are rude! I took friends that were not from Leeds as they had heard about The Alchemist and we were given chipped glasses when ordering a round of cocktails. Very disappointing I would recommend going elsewhere such as The Lost and Found.

Went with family who live in Leeds to The Alchemist for lunch. The staff are great. Friendly, enthusiastic and exceedingly on the ball. Service was above expectations. I had a really spicy, tasty Katsu curry breaded chicken breast on sticky light fragrant rice and my adult son chose a beautifully grilled pink sirloin steak with a pepper cream sauce and sal & pepper fries. Both dishes were beautifully plated and served piping hot. The wine list is one to please all tastes and budgets. My son raved about his cappuccino coffee because the coffee was so dark roasted and flavoursome. We both had the Moroccan mint tea. This the “pièce de résistance” of the fabulous lunch for both of us. Our mint tea was emptied into a glass of water water and we were amazed by the flow of white smoke which billowed from the glass brewing the tea. Just like in an Alchemist’s laboratory. It was sheer theatre and we loved the drama of it all. Highly recommend The Alchemist in Leeds or at other branches around the UK. Children would love it as much as any other age group for the incredible performance of eating a delicious meal in such atmospheric surroundings. This will become one of my Leeds favourite restaurants when visiting family.

My wife and I decided to go to Leeds for a long weekend.
And visited both Alchemists the one in the trinity centre and the one on Greek street.
Both venues are very unique and have a great atmosphere.
They have a vast array of cocktails to choose from if your feeling adventurous.
I noticed the one on Greek street had a nice seating area where you could have food and drinks. And the food to what I saw coming out looked as good as the cocktails.
Was hoping to return for food the next day.
But with so much to do and see in Leeds never got the opportunity.
Definitely next time.
Would highly recommend visiting the alchemist on your special night out.

Simply a place you must visit in Leeds, cocktails are absolutely amazing in all aspects, taste, presentation, effects some of them have to be seen to be believed. The bar staff really know there stuff. Cool drinks, good music, just an all round great vibe. Love it.

The placement of this bar is great right inside the shopping centre meaning it's easy to find and from my experience a lively atmosphere, although I didn't eat on this visit the food I saw looked very nice and well presented
The drinks were lovely and watching them being made was a great experience
