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,...

I've never had a bad meal in Akbars. Indian is my favourite cuisine and Akbars do it amazingly well. Me and my girlfriend come here every couple of months, and we generally have a starter and a main with a drink or 2 each and spend around £35. The service is always great, the staff are extremely polite and fast... More

I visited Akbars tonight 31/07/14, the whole experience was terrible. The starter (chicken and prawn poori) was quite bland and the prawns tasted off. Thinking it was just the combination of flavours I ordered a Seafood Balti for my main. When the mains arrived and we started eating I realised that the prawns in this dish tasted as off as... More

Food came late, mixed up, kids meal with no drink or side dish, had to ask for them both yet should come standard... Complained... More
