Located at the apex of Wade Lane and Merrion Street, Fairuz Lebanese Restaurant is an asset to the Northern Quarter of Leeds city centre. It is hidden on the lower ground floor of the large office block known as Fairfax House, and though it may not be the easiest restaurant to find, it is certainly worth the search. Fairuz, which translates as precious stone in Arabic, is a modest and unassuming restaurant that offers diners a slice of the Middle East in the middle of Leeds. The interior combines the old and the rustic with the modern and the exotic, emphasising natural elements that create a warm and cosy setting.

Every dish packs a flavourful punch, combining traditional flavours and rich spices from the Mediterranean and the Middle East. With a tasty array of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, the restaurant has something for every diner. The Mixed Grill with fillet of lamb, chicken and Kofta, grilled a special seasoning, a side salad and the chefs special sauce, comes highly recommended, as does the Fish Tajeen with slow cooked salmon, vegetables, herbs and couscous. For those wanting the true Lebanese experience, the Chefs Meze is a must-try, with a select choice of starters and main course.Or there is also the option to choose your own dishes with the restaurants Special Meze.
