Bundobust Leeds Review | Vegetarian Indian Street Food & Craft Beer


A banging spot for Indian street food and craft beer. It’s almost always fully booked so you want to make sure you book a table online before you visit. You can’t miss their Bundo Chaat which is made up of layers of samosa pastry, chickpea, potato, onion, sev, and chilli sauce. Their cocktail menu is also a hit, particularly their coconut and mango mojito.
