Food is always amazing which is what makes the place and, afterall why we went. However we arrived at 17.15 but didn't get our food until shortly after 18.30. This is too long to wait.

The service was slow but it was definitely worth the wait! The food I'd incredible. I got the unfairground burger with the bacon bacon fried and macand cheese balls and I it was so nice. The seating is Abit cramped and it's very noisy so it would of been better if we had room to breathe instead of been part of the tables next to us conversation but that's the only critism. I'd definitely come again but book a table because you'll be waiting ages.

It took over 30 minutes for staff to take our order, this was both food and drink. When we finally got served, our waiter apologised and we were offered a free pitcher of cocktail. After ordering it took a further 45 minutes for food to arrive. The whole party were impressed with the food but disappointed with the service.

What a treat!! Absolutely loved everything about this place. Staff were friendly and gave us options for our table. We chosen sit in the Pixel bar and went for the SNES option and enjoyed Mario, Donkey Kong and Streetfighter games. I had the River Phoenix burger which was amazing (opted for no chillies). The Jigglypuff cocktail was my favourite.
We chose the bar as it was close to the Beckett student union where we were heading to watch the Feeder gig. Special thanks to the bar manager that popped on several Feeder tunes for us 👍
We will definitely be back and have recommended to several friends. Keep up the good work guys!

Just not that great, expect a lot but there’s not atmosphere in the place, the burgers aren’t worth the amount you pay and the staff just aren’t that bothered.

Lovely good, best burgers I have had. Staff very friendly and helpful. Only complaint was the loud music. Have been before and never heard it that loud. It was like being in a nightclub. When leaving my ears actually felt like I was leaving a club at 5 in the morning. Not really what you want when going out with your partner and having to shout over the table. Apart from that the place is worth a visit. Very clean too.

Booked a table and arrived a bit late but the friendly team showed straight to our seats. Really nice staff throughout and the food tasted incredible as always. The family experience was spoilt by a larger group of men shouting and swearing at their table. But the worst thing was the state of the toilets, couldn’t believe that by 6pm one stall had no toilet paper, another toilet was so dirty I wouldn’t use it, all toilet papers were resting on bins not in the dispensers and one door had a male shift bolt since the lock didn’t work. Soap dispensers were empty/broken so one cheap plastic bottle of soap to share between everyone and even that was broken.

We went on Saturday night for an evening meal and the burgers are outstanding! Me and my partner both said it was the best burger we have ever had! He had the pizza burger and I had the chicken and beef one! So so tasty! We got the mixed fries to share and we loved them! 100% would return on our next trip to Leeds! Definitely worth a visit, you won’t be disappointed!

Great burgers, good chips though a bit cold. Shoddy service, waited 15 mins for a table (note, table was booked for 20.15 and we waited till 20.30) and then a further 15 mins before drinks order taken. Just slow. Very busy and very loud inside but that's to be expected. Overall, if you like a decent burger I'd suggest this place, though meat liquor is better all round.

I just found the environment too noisy. The food was over sauced to my taste (the halloumi burger tasted only of the sauce).

I should say the younger members of the group were fine with both these things. So purely a personal choice, perhaps an age thing

The only slight disappointment was the fact that it was my daughters 18th birthday. Our third meal in a week! This was the only place that didn't make a little effort to say congrats. It was on the booking form and mentioned to a greeter. Minor thing in the scheme of things has to be said.

Overall an okay place, probably great for larger younger groups.

I have had to put a no to the answer would I refer a friend, even thought the food was outstanding. My reason for this is I was dining alone and was shown to my table at 5:35. OpenTable then sent me a conformation that I had arrived at 5:38. I ordered quite promptly and ordered a glass of water, chips and a burger - nothing too much and with no special requests.

I waited for my food - and waited and waited some more. I became conscious that other people sat around me were beginning to complain about the time it was taking to get their food so thought it was no point adding to them so continued to sit there. I even feel that the couple sat next to me just left and walked out after eating their food - I didn't see them leave any money or pay - just left without being tackled about it.

I eventually got my two items of food at 6:30 exactly - a full 55 minutes after ordering it. This in my opinion was appalling. I have waited less to eat a full 3 or 4 course meal in a full restaurant.

This is why I would not recommend eating there. Fantastic food but I could eat the same portions and a similar quality at Five Guys in half the time.

Very poor service and diabolical time keeping.

The food was good, the price was fine and as expected. But the service was poor. It was a Saturday night and relatively busy, but for the amount of staff they had on our table of 8 didn’t understand why it took them 20 minutes to take our order. Then wait 1 hour 30 minutes for our food to arrive. We arrived at 5 for our booking and didn’t eat until almost 7.

Lovely meal and waitress was fab. Service was very slow though. 20 mins to order drinks and food then another 10 minutes for drinks to arrive. Love the place and the food but will only ever go there when over 2 hours free which is not too often. It was painfully slow last time we went too.

Absolutely fantastic service when we visited on Friday for the lunch menu. The server was an absolute credit to your company as at one point my wifes Pepsi was a little low and without even being prompted he came over with another drink for her just a shame I can't remember his name.

They had an offer on when we visited so all burgers were a fiver. Burgers were tasty however we had to send the fries back as they were not hot enough for us. They did send out a replacement.
We had a sharing cocktail. I thought this would have come in a jug but it was one big cocktail glass with straws in to share. My friend felt it wasn’t sweet enough.

Lady on desk was texting for a few minutes whilst we waited to be seated, bit rude.
However after leaving a phone the manager ran after us to give us it back so he made up for it!

Booked a table for 1:15 as we only had an hour for lunch called to preorder our food to save time too didn't get seated until 1.35 and food didn't arrive at table until 2.10 I understand they had an offer on but none told us there was going to be such a long wait before had and we had to keep asking how long the food would be.

We visited the Leeds restaurant as we have done on a number of occasions with work.

Pre-booked a table for 12pm (Opening time) we order within 10 minutes we then waited over an hour for food no word from any staff, we were told 10 minutes and no food 30 minutes later.

We eventually had food 1Hr 35 minutes from ordering and it was cold, basically seemed microwaved and was probably from previous tables that had walked out and food returned to the kitchen.Multiple other tables had got up and walked out during our wait and no manager to be seen !!!

Following our food we asked to have our bill reduced to which a Manager then magically appeared she had allowed her staff to front all the hassle whilst sitting in the back no management shown at all.

She was then abrupt and accused us of shouting at staff ??? We had one conversation with staff and that was it and not a raised voice was heard.

Unbelievable, never had worse service or been more insulted by a manager who should have been rectifying the issue not compounding them.

Waited an hour for food with no apology! They blamed the fact they had a promo on but it wasn't even full so don't know how they cope when the place is full! Way too much sauce on my veggie burger which made it soggy - didn't enjoy at all.

The burgers are to die for! Service was quite slow and had to ask to order and gave up waiting for the bill so went up to the counter, but it was very busy with it being a Saturday night! Would not stop us going back - we love the food!

Arrived when the place was near empty yet we got placed on a table in the middle of the room and as people quickly started to arrive after us it felt like we had people sat on our knee it was so cramped. It was 7pm and the music was so loud you could barely hear each other when you were talking, it was like being in a club. We are used to going to the manchester NQ and we will for sure be going there again next time
