About The Cat's Pyjamas

The best Indian street food this side of Delhi.

After spotting a gap in the market, Leeds based Scottish entrepreneur Alison White set up the first Cat's Pyjamas in Headingley. She worked closely with Alfred Prasad, the youngest Indian chef to ever receive a Michelin star, who crafted our menu with tantalising aromas and fragrant flavours to create food that will wake the taste buds. We celebrate Indian street food culture - the carts and street side vendors that dot the length and breadth of India’s regions, preserving age-old recipes whilst creating urban legends. Inspired by the hawker’s local dishes, Goa’s seafood shacks and the toddy shops of Kerala, every one of our dishes is infused with the passion of India’s cooks. We’re combining the energy from our bustling kitchen with vibrant decor to evoke the colours, chaos and craziness of India and create a fun, easy-going, dynamic atmosphere.
We’re bringing the best Indian street food this side of Delhi to the heart of Headingley & Leeds.

I came here with my parents on a monday evening. The place was surprisingly busy so thankful we booked. The atmosphere was great, lively but not loud. The food was amazing, big portions, great value for money. The service was also very impressive, the guys serving were polite and friendly. Really made us feel at home. I'd recommend to everyone. Wish we lived closer so we could come back soon!

The food and service was excellent. It was a bit rowdy with Christmas do's but that can't be helped. Will definitely go back for the amazing food. So much choice!

Terrific food, great service, great value. Thanks to the saviour who bought Headingley Cats Pyjamas and kept it the same perfect recipe for success. On a wet cold Friday night, this was THE PLACE TO BE! Tasty, great menu, great service. Wonderful. Thank you.

Just had to mark down to 'only' 4 stars for service as you forgot Dahi Bale side dish ordered with main dishes. Otherwise a faultless experience. Fantastic flavours, well sized portions. Very tasty. Beers excellent as well.

Absolutely incredible food for my 22nd birthday with my parents. Especially loved my paneer cheese curry. Will not hesitate in returning. Thanks for a great birthday meal.

The food here is incredible and the service always very friendly. My favourite Indian restaurant in Leeds. Try the okra fries you won't be disappointed!

I was a bit disappointed to be honest. Been coming here since it originally opened and loved it. But since the changes the food has lost some of its sparkle. Staff were great. No draft beer and ran out of the wine I’d chosen! So had to pay more for a more expensive bottle. Not worth the drive from Leeds city centre anymore I’m afraid.
