Leeds Vegetarian Restaurants

Leeds is a city with plenty of choices, but you can feel really limited if you choose not to eat meat, and even more so if you go full vegetarian and cut out fish dishes. If you’re follow a vegan diet, it can be especially daunting! Well, worry no more, as here at Go dine we’ve put our heads together and come up with some of our amazing member Leeds vegetarian restaurants that people can dine at no matter what diet they practice. Read on for fantastic options for vegeterians, vegans, and even gluten-free vegans!

Chino Latino

A sushi place may not cross your mind when you’re looking at places for vegetarian dinners, but this stylish Japanese joint has much more to offer than simply raw fish. They have a wide vegetarian selection, most of which is vegan, too. This is an ideal place to go for a fancy dinner, and obviously has plenty of options for meat- and fish-eaters, so everyone will be happy!

Dishes to try:

  • Vegetarian – Layered pickled beetroot, yuzu cream cheese and a port reduction.
  • Vegan – Tofu panko breadcrumb cubes with chilli spring onion and avocado oil.


Indian restaurants are often associated with cream-laden kormas or chicken tikka, but we reckon their veggie and vegan offerings surpass the rest. Check out their dedicated vegetarian menu, but don’t be afraid to ask to subsitute a couple of things. We’ve found that the most authentic Indian restaurants will do this readily, as the Indian diet is naturally lower in meat than one might assume thanks to Dharmic beliefs present in Buddhism and Hinduism, espcially in Gujarati and Uttar Pradash cooking.

Dishes to try:

  • Vegetarian – Paneer Masala – firm Indian cheese gives this curry texture and a delicious creamy flavour.
  • Vegan – Chana Masala – delicately spiced chickpeas with chunky potatoes.

  • Vegetarian – Pad Thai Pak – stir-fried rice noodles with egg, bean sprouts, mixed veggies and firm tofu.
  • Vegan – Pad Pak Mamuang Himmaparn – stir fried veggies with crispy golden tofu with cashew nuts and pineapple.
