One of the nicest curries I've had in a long time and you can take your own booze for a cheap night!

I visited with a large group on a social and had heard very good things! You can take your own alcohol which keeps the cost down! We were warmly welcomed by the front of house. The menu offered a very good range of dishes at very reasonable prices. It would have been helpful to maybe have a description of the... More

I visited Akmal's with my girlfriend and a couple of friends, hidden away in a quiet part of Hyde Park, I never expected to find such a gem of a restaurant. Greeted by a very polite and friendly gentlemen we were quickly seated due to the lack of customers which initially worried me I thought: " if it's a good... More

We had my birthday meal here. The food was amazing and the service was brilliant. Cash only so make sure you have some, there is a free cash machine in the Library pub just at the side of the restaurant so don't panic. Well worth it, will definitely be back!

This restaurant has very delicious food, no doubt. It is 100% worth a visit at least once if you're in Leeds. The reason i didn't give it 5* is because the food took quite a long time to be served, and also the rice portions were not too generous. However, the chicken tikka masala portion was well sized for its... More

We went as a group of 6 and between us tried a good proportion of the menu, from korma to jalfrezi to biriyani and we were all incredibly satisfied. Just a... More

Busy when we arrived with student doctors having a great time but Afsal got us a table at the quieter end and the food was worth it as ever. This a great venue and a real landmark in Hyde Park. Good value and the Lamb Boti starter is superb. I had a classic: Keema Madras, good flavour and spice with... More

My second visit to this superb curry house - sadly I live a long way away so only go there when I am visiting my daughter at university. Leeds has many curry houses, but it would be hard to beat Akmal's. Located on the edge of Hyde Park, the restaurant looks more like a pavilion with windows all around allowing... More

The staff was really helpful and friendly, the food was good and cheap. Me and my boyfriend ate for less than £20 including rice, naan bread, samosas and curry. Would absolutely recommend!
