Sponsored Content

With the cost of living crisis making budgets tighter than ever, eating out is a luxury many cannot afford, especially with Christmas just around the corner. 

However, December would not be the same without a few treats here and there, whether they be enjoyed during Christmas shopping trips or those annual get-togethers with family and friends. Is there a way you can eat out in Leeds this festive season without breaking the bank? There most certainly is!

For those seeking to save a few pennies when eating out in Leeds, a tastecard subscription is ideal. Annual membership is just £29.99 or you can spread the cost and pay just £3.99 per month. For this small monthly fee, you will have access to exclusive restaurant offers including 2 for 1, 50% off and 25% off; saving you an average of £23 per meal. 

Many of the participating restaurants are big-name chains that you will already be familiar with but there are a significant number of independent eateries across the UK offering tastecard discounts, too.

So, where can you use your tastecard in Leeds during the run-up to Christmas? I’ve compiled a list of some of my favourite restaurant offers in Leeds, exclusive to tastecard subscribers…

Where to Use Your tastecard in Leeds this Christmas

Thai Edge

7 Calverley Street, New Portland Place Leeds LS1 3DB

From Sunday to Thursday, a tastecard subscription will enable you to get 25% off your bill at the award-winning Thai Edge restaurant on Caverley Street in Leeds city centre. 

On the extensive menu at this Thai restaurant in Leeds, you’ll find a mouthwatering selection of Thai favourites such as Pad Thai, Green Curry, Panang Curry, Papaya Salad and numerous others, alongside various aromatic stir-frys, marinated grilled meats and comforting noodle dishes. 

For Christmas 2023, Thai Edge has also created special festive menus bursting with tasty dishes that are delightfully festive but vastly different to the traditional turkey and stuffing offerings. 

Choose from one of the carefully curated set menus which allow diners to enjoy two or three courses for a set price or pick your dishes from the Christmas A La Carte menu. 

Begin with a starter of Turkey Spring Rolls or perhaps, sink your teeth into their BBQ Pork Ribs with Gingerbread Spice. For your main course, there’s Roasted Turkey in Teriyaki, Stir-Fried Brussels Sprouts and Ham, Prawn and Mango Spicy Salad, Pumpkin Red Curry and more!

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without an indulgent cheesy treat and Bella Italia’s Melting Christmas Camembert Pizza is just that! It’s a tomato base pizza topped with mozzarella cheese, pulled chicken, pancetta and cranberry sauce then finished off with sage crisps and whole melting camembert. Plenty of gooey cheese to dip those crusts in!
