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 delicious. Service really good. My only gripe was the chairs. Horrible and uncomfortable! Just like old school chairs!

I can't wait to come back to the Cat's Pyjamas! The food, atmosphere and staff were all amazing. The saag paneer has to be the best I've ever had, and it's the dish I always order.

Although the staff were all lovely, it took 1.30 hours to bring our mains which wasn’t great considering the size of the restaurant. The food was very good on the whole, especially chicken 65.

On our first visit here we was taken to our seats by the manager who did not speak to us and left us for a good 10-15 mins Then a lovely girl called Imogen took our order and she was very helpful and we enjoyed our night if it was not for Imogen being so helpful Saturday night I would have left at the start after our bad welcome on entry If this was my restaurant just opening I would not have that manager front of house bad move

Absolutely lovely meal, some different Indian style food to what we have previously had, which was great. Staff friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes and a good variety of dishes available, especially as we are vegetarian and prices very reasonable. Drinks are expensive, hence four stars, I would have given five for the food alone. Will definitely return. Love the food.

Loved the food and drink! We have a few starter dishes between us to taste different types of food and it was well worth it! We could tell it was a new restaurant, the staff members got confused at least 3 times with our dishes, gave us the wrong ones and gave ours to another table etc. Not a big issue but something for the team to work on!

A busy but surprisingly smooth opening day for The Cat’s PJs new location in York. What sets this place apart from other Indian restaurants is the relaxed atmosphere, good craft beer selection (and Kingfisher on tap which is a plus) and interesting menu. While the curries are fantastic, it’s not the only option and I would recommend ordering street food and having Indian style tapas. Staff were very friendly and helpful to those not sure with the menu. If you aren’t familiar with the cuisine I would recommend coming here. The food is tasty with the right amount of spice, enough to keep me interested as a fan, but I think a lot of people can enjoy it regardless of tolerance.

Decor - place looks great. Service - a tad slow but guess the team were settling in... We waited 15mins after sitting down before order was taken and then starters took 30mins to arrive. Starter portion price was OK for the price we paid (50% soft launch offer). Not sure I'd want to order same starters at £8 full price. Mains - got to be able to serve curries/nan breads/rice altogether and on to warm plates please. Food was very tasty. We'll come back and give it another go.

We were disappointed about the fact that we waited an hour and a half to be served our main dishes (however, the "chief lady" informed us about an issue so I hope it will be resolved soon :)). The food was very tasty, however it would be nice if the portions were a bit bigger (for example, a starter with grill chicken had only 3 small pieces of chicken). Nice environment and kind stuff! Thank you!

When we attended we were unable to get a number of items on your food menu, we asked for some dishes as shown on the Facebook page and those were also.not available in the york branch so the waiter said. We were told you had no draught on so ordered bottles and then saw another table with draft so we were then able to get it which was strange? Didn't feel the staff were very clued up seemed very nervous and clueless at times, the owner was the only person who seemed to be keeping the place running smoothly. I thought the prices a 50 percent off were about right otherwise slightly overpriced as no veg with the dishes and drink expensive. We did have a good night but I think that's due to our company we were with. Good luck though 😁

I thought the ambiance and the service was great. The food was well presented and tasty but I found some of it rather sweet particularly the minced lamb. Unfortunately I developed a stomach bug the following day which I hope was not due to your food.

Few teething problems as expected with a new opening. Mains came when still eating starters, some items not available. Saw 4 different servers through the meal. Personally i prefer one main server but I totally understand that can't always happen. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and have recommended the place to everyone i spoke to. I hope the service issues get ironed out as i think you will do well and i will be a regular customer.

It was a bit of "Faulty Towers" experience with the staff finding their feet. I will not make a judgment as Cat's PJ's had just opened and the "50% off" offer had a big draw than expected. Food was very good and I will go back in a few weeks when things settle down.
