One of Leeds’ finest kept secrets continues to delight its diners as an array of delectable dishes are served up in the city centre

Established four years ago in the heart of Briggate, AM Kitchen and Bar was set up to bring the finest Indian cuisine to the people of West Yorkshire.

With a growing reputation as one of the city’s leading South Asian restaurants, the state-of-the-art, two-floor establishment caters for avid food enthusiasts seven days a week, with all dishes made to the customer’s exact requirements.

A menu, mixed between traditional favourites and modern twists, gives AM Kitchen and Bar’s loyal diners the chance to explore new tastes and flavours from around the world all under one roof. All meat is of course Halal and sourced from local providers.

Highly acclaimed vegetarian dishes are also on offer including traditional favourites: Chana Masala, Tarka Daal and Aloo Matar as well as chef specials including the mouthwatering Palak Paneer – a lightly spiced Indian cheese in a puree of fresh spinach.

Where possible the freshest local produce is used to support local businesses yet naturally, the exotic spices and flavourings come from all corners of the globe to ensure that authentic Indian taste.

All chefs are highly qualified and share more than 50 years of experience in the kitchen where the art of Indian cuisine has been mastered.

Head chef, Javaid Akhtar, has worked in the profession for almost 40 years and explains why AM Kitchen and Bar is the finest establishment he has ever worked in.

“It is absolutely beautiful here,” he explains. “The food, the décor, the whole environment is just beautiful.

“Our food has the flavours and the punch to give that authentic taste which every good Indian meal should have.

“You can’t just learn to cook some of these dishes. In order to get the best taste every time, you need to have had the experience to know what works and what doesn’t. Here at AM Kitchen and Bar, I know that every single dish we prepare and serve is going to be done to the highest standard.”
