I dont like to write negative reviews but I been here a 3 times and all three times were bad. I always give Places a chance, I went to a few restaurants and I did not like the experience at first but I always give it a chance. There are better restaurant in Middlesbrough, and would not come back

As a minor expert of Asian food I thought I'd try this place having heard good things about it. It was certainly worth it. Lovely food, great service, great ambience, good portions. Thoroughly recommend lamb chops (my mouth just watered!)

Visited Akbars in Middlesbrough last night and had a good meal, albeit the Lamb and Ginger balti was a little on the hot side for me, it was tasty and the lamb was very tender! The music was better than last time and we didn't have too long to wait for a table. A good night was had by all.

It pains me to give this an average. I have been to Akbar's quite a lot of times, but the last 2 times going, the service hasn't been great. The last time I went, the menus were taken without us ordering. We had to flag someone down to take our orders. When we had ordered and were waiting for food,... More

Loved Akbars.. Food was gorgeous and love the glamorous atmosphere. Already planning our next visit for a meal with friends before heading out for drinks round the corner. Definitely recommend sitting in the dark red part though - not the window seats up the ramp. Ahmad was a treat!

Though you wait at door for you to be next seated you can get served at bar while you wait. Service is spot on and food is delicious. I have never had a bad meal though I have heard of one bad incident. Restaurant is always jam packed so if you are a party of 5 or more it is... More

Akbars seem to rely on creating glitzy restaurants and forget about the primary thing people go to restaurants for - the FOOD! The food is terrible. I ordered a special curry that contained chicken and minced meat. When it arrived the smell alone was enough to turn your stomach and it didn't taste any better. The novelty naans typify this...

If it's good enough for Juninho, it's good enough for the tash...or was it Jeremy Clarkson...either way had a delightful meal with my wife last month, the lack of traditional Indian music was a shame and the super sized naan breads were a little bit chewy, other than that I can say this was the best curry I've ever eaten,...
