Hasan’s turns up the heat and goes from strength to strength

One of Leeds’ finest family-orientated Indian restaurants is gearing up to celebrate the joys of Christmas. As winter freezes up the world outside, be prepared to give your insides a thorough heating from Hasan’s delicious cuisine.

The spectacular spice house on Kirkstall Road has a modern and cosy environment. The restaurant combines authentic Punjabi tastes, in a traditional Lohori style, with some in-house secrets.

The award-winning restaurant has proven a big hit with all of its customers, and Asian Express News has been a frequent visitor ever since its first poppadom was popped in 2009.


Hasan’s has a comprehensive, innovative menu prepared with the freshest, zingiest ingredients and Halal certified produce.

Every taste is catered for on the menu, whether you like your curries mild or hotter than a Bollywood heart-throb. The food is made fresh on the premises on the same day, unlike many other Indian restaurants who cook from frozen.

Speciality dishes range from a mouth-watering Chicken Lasan to the renowned Lamb Nihari . The Nihari is especially exquisite: a combination of tender pieces of lamb slowly cooked on the bone and slathered in spice, it may be the best of its kind in the UK.


Every dish is served with a selection of irresistible spices which will surely tickle and tantalise your taste buds.

To add a little sweetness to the end of your meal, desserts include favourites such as Ras Malai or one of the many flavours of creamy Swiss Ice Cream.

Alongside the relaxed ambience upstairs, a Bollywood-themed function room is located on-site which can cater for groups of up to 40 people and provides the perfect space for you to dance the night away.

With a sensational surround sound-system and private bar, the party area ensures all revellers are able to celebrate throughout the night.

Owner and chef, Hasan Chaudhry, has spent his working life in the kitchen, and continues to develop his appetising dishes, flavoured with some fragrant family secrets.

Hasan’s is open every day, has free parking and is extremely good value for money.

Hasan’s is a proud sponsor of the World Curry Festival and has been recently endowed with an award from Asian Express Newspapers. With all these prizes, Hasan is going to need to put up more shelves to display them on!

The perfect venue for all occasions this winter

On 4th December 2009, Hasan’s Restaurant on Kirkstall Road opened its doors for the first time, bringing with it a unique taste of the Punjab that the city had never experienced before.

And now, with the much-loved restaurant celebrating its five-year anniversary last week, owner and Chef Hasan Chaudhry, wants to thank all the customers past and present for helping make the business a true Leeds success story.

What began as just a passion for food, soon escalated into an award-winning business for Hasan as he picked up a handful of prestigious accolades over recent years.

In 2012, the Hasan’s team were invited to cook at the House of Commons after winning the highly-decorated Tiffin Cup Award. This was followed up with being named as a finalist at the English Curry Awards last year, and most recently, in 2014, Hasan’s was awarded the Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor.

From television stars to Bollywood’s elite, sportsmen to esteemed politicians, the array of diners who have sampled the establishment’s award winning menu is ever-growing yet it is the support of customers ‘closer to home’ that has helped the restaurant excel in the city.


“I just want to say thank you to every person who has come down to the restaurant over the years, from the local customers to those who may have just been visiting the city,” Hasan said.

“We have now been open for five years which is a great achievement but something which would not have been possible without the support of our diners.

“I would like to invite everybody down to celebrate this milestone with us over the winter months and it would be great to see you here at Hasan’s.”

During the festive season, Hasan’s Restaurant is set to cater for numerous Christmas and New Year parties, with time quickly running out for future bookings.

Whether it is just a small family gathering, a reunion of friends, or a work’s party, the relaxed ambience upstairs provides the perfect atmosphere to relax inside with a heart-warming dish, as the cold weather breezes outside.

A private Bollywood-themed function room downstairs, can also accommodate a party of up to 40-people in a location which is completely unique in the city of Leeds.

Visit Hasan’s today and experience a true taste of Punjabi-dining or call the restaurant to arrange a winter-party, friends and family alike, are bound to never forget.
