Myself and my friends visit this place frequently as it provides delicious food at very affordable prices! From outside it may look a little odd but the atmosphere inside is often great with very friendly staff. Although quite small, it does get busy particularly later in the evening. This is no surprise as the food is amazing. They also have... More

Really lovely restaurant serving a great selection of Indian dishes at a reasonable price. Service was good without being rushed and although they do serve drinks you can bring your own which is ideal. I will definitely return here again.

I recently visited Leeds with 3 friends for a girly weekend. We don't really know Leeds so wanted to pre book a meal rather than have find one on the night and didn't want to end up anywhere "safe", we wanted somewhere different. Akmals was in the student area, but we weren't put off and when our taxi pulled up... More

The food here is lovely - good menu and reliably tasty. Poppadoms and pickles are brought on your arrival to nibble at whilst you choose. The owner is very friendly. Drinks can be bought but it's also absolutely fine to bring your own drinks - and it caters well to big groups (mainly student groups). One thing to note is... More

As a vegetarian, the absence of any paneer dishes from the menu was disappointing. However, I ordered a dahl and while the place was getting busy the service was slow. The dahl arrived before accompanying rice ... but the lentils were undercooked and still "woody". When this was pointed out, the serving dish was taken away ... At least five... More

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
