Co-Founder Mustafa aka Baba

Founded in Istanbul in 2012 by Mehmet & Mustafa (affectionately known as Baba), Etci Mehmet launched its first UK restaurant in Manchester, which instantly became the City’s hottest dining spot. This was followed by openings in Riyadh, Birmingham, Liverpool, Doha and Casablanca. With its arrival in Leeds, creating 60 jobs in the City, the restaurant is set to become a firm favourite among locals and visitors alike.

Speaking ahead of the Leeds launch, Operations Director Amine el Gueddar commented: “We are thrilled to continue our UK expansion. Leeds has been cooking for a long time and was the next natural destination. Many of our current guests travel weekly from the Yorkshire district, including Bradford, Huddersfield, Batley, Dewsbury and Wakefield. We wanted to bring the Etci experience closer to them.

Leeds ticks all the boxes, and we found the perfect location on Eastgate, Headrow, in the heart of the City. It is easily accessible to students, professionals, and families alike. With ample parking and proximity to transport links and motorways, enjoying a delicious meal atEtci Mehmet has never been easier.

As one of the UK’s largest cities, Leeds holds a wealth of opportunities for Etci Mehmet. The restaurant is excited to become a part of the City’s thriving community and looks forward to contributing to its development and growth.
We can’t wait to create an inviting atmosphere at our new restaurant, filled with our passion for food and hospitality. We love seeing everyone enjoying their time together with us and we’re excited to serve, support and entertain the Yorkshire community!”
