About The Cat's Pyjamas - York

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, Leeds. Our menu has been crafted by our talented chef team 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 York & Leeds.

Food was great. This is my 4th visit to York branch now snd each time the service is lacking. Staff appear to be very inexperienced in my opinion. On every occasion there is something they forget eg to bring the drinks or part of the order.

I didn’t think the PJs could get any better, but the new menu certainly has done so! The selection of beers is even better as well. The only thing I can suggest to improve is some sort of set menu because it can be confusing knowing how much to order.

We had a lovely meal thankyou and it was very good value for money. It was very quiet time at the restaurant but we still had to wait 35/40 mins for our main meal. This was such a long wait for my little boy. Luckily the food was lovely when it was here.

We had a fantastic time with a group of friends at the restaurant last night. Very relaxed atmosphere, sat in a booth which was perfect for 7 of us. All the food was amazing but the Keema Matar was voted the best dish. Definitely recommend it. Staff were great, welcoming and very informative. Brilliant night. Can't wait to go again. Thanks.

Interesting menu and the food was excellent. The restaurant was very noisy though which made speaking to each other and ordering very difficult. Staff were friendly and helpful but service was quite slow. 20 minutes for a Gin &Tonic. Thought the Tesco tonic from a big bottle let you down too! I’ll come again at a quieter time as I loved the food.

Great food Great atmosphere Yes you have to wait but the food is delicious and freshly cooked so well worth it I'd worry more if it appeared after five minutes! Ordered a mix of starter plates and mains which arrived all together so shared Staff were low key and not pushy to move you from your table when finished so in my opinion ideal

Being honest I left the restaurant on Friday feeling very disappointed. We had returned after being impressed with our first visit and invited friends as a treat to celebrate their wedding anniversary. They really love Indian food and we thought your take on the street food theme would be interesting for them. Everything was fine apart from the wait for our main course. I’m not impatient and appreciate Friday nights are busy, but we arrived for a 7:15pm booking and our main course didn’t arrive until 8:55pm. The frustrating thing was that I had noticed a large table next to the kitchen on a 7:30 pm booking had sat down before us and finished their meal before our main course had arrived. When you start to feel frustrated you also notice things like the stream of deliveroo orders that are catered for in preference to customers in the restaurant. My patience was pushed to the point it actually put a dampener on an evening we had really been looking forward to!

The staff and ambience was faultless. Drinks were great too. Sadly the food wasn't really interesting and the only dishes for a veggie and a vegan as main courses were so disappointing and just HOT without real flavour that we gave up! I expect for meat eaters it is a great place but there are more and more vegans out there all the time. You need to cater well for us. I wish your company well I really do but I can't say we will return anytime soon. Our local Indian restaurant - the Bridge and Bayleaf at Gunthorpe is far superior and your chefs could learn a lot from them. Sorry! loved the service and building decor. :)
