Dinning in the neighborhood was a delight

Visiting one of the kids, and wanted to just walk to dinner. First time at Akbar. Throughly enjoyed the dinner for two, together with a nice bottle of win. We like it quite spicy, if you do as well ... Get it medium and ask for extra hot sauce. Taste was excellent. Very good value for you money... read more

This restaurant earned my 5 star approval of requirements, comfortable good service, greatly delicious food at fair prices. Came here with some friends after some late tennis sessions. The chicken tikka is my favorite dish and they knocked it out of the ballpark: flavourful, very tasty and the portion size was filling. Apparently they were very busy during dinner when... More

Very good, authentic Indian food. We have been coming here for years and the quality of the food has managed to maintain itself over time, which is rare. The food is moderately spicy but can be made less upon request. Our favourites are the lamb curry, chicken vindaloo and of course, the naan. We were in town with the kids... More

I went to Akbar's recently with a couple of friends. Thought I'd give them a try since they had pretty good reviews. I didn't regret it. Me and my buddies were really happy we tried it. The service was great, the restaurant is small and confortable, and finally...the food. Ohhh the food. Personally, it's one of the best indian restaurants... More

What an exceptional Indian restaurant this is in Broadway. Was introduced to this restaurant by some friends from work and brought my wife for dinner last night. Both times, service was nothing less than great. The food is also worth coming back for. Indian food can be a bit heavy sometimes due to the amount of gravy and spices that... More

I cannot eat too much spicy food but was able to eat at Akbars. What I liked about this restaurant was that despite my 'odd' food habits, I was able to find something to eat and actually enjoy it. Not many hot or spicy restaurants can do that. Okay, so enough about me and onto the food. I ordered the... More

I discovered this gem of an Indian restaurant when I was looking for ethnic food in Vancouver. The food is authentically Indian and fresh. What I like about Akbars is that they make it with just with the right amount of spice to make it tasty (and bearable! I can't eat food that is too spicy). Their butter chicken and... More

Local friends or anyone visiting from out of town, this is the BEST place in the entire city for food that is amazing, well priced, served with a smile and won't leave you feeling sick. Many places don't have all of this and well sized portions of food. Vegetarian or meat lover - lots of great choices of food that... More
