Great service and great food! Staff give it an amazing atmosphere! Will be back very soon! Very clean place, not more you can ask for when you go out for food!

We visited on a Saturday night and were disappointed with the poor quality. The poppadoms were greasy, the main was too sweet and had no taste. Overall the meal was not good and left us both feeling queasy afterward and into the following day!

Summary Pros: HUGE NAANS, Wide choice of curries and meals as well as being high quality. Cons: Might be pricey for some, tables can be a bit cosy. I've dined at Akbars a fair few times and have never had an unpleasant experience. With the number of dishes available their is something for any taste and the price matches the... More

I decided to take an impromptu trip here with my friend for some dinner and it was a fantastic experience from the moment we walked in to the restaurant. First class service - shown to our tables by a very friendly member of staff - left to order our food in peace after taking our drinks orders which was great... More

I visited here with my sister one Sunday evening and am glad we did. We were greeted and seated within a minute of arriving, with a waiter taking our drink order soon after. We ordered a poppadum each with pickle tray, two pilau rice, one chicken curry and one king prawn curry with a garlic naan to share. The chicken... More

I went here last night for a family meal. My family have been before, but I hadn't. The staff were very helpful and pleasant throughout our visit. I asked one of the staff which curries were sweet rather than spicy and they were only too happy to assist. When they brought out our meals, I had the staff joking with... More

Went for an early evening meal with friends. Had a short wait at the bar as they were busy but was soon shown to a table. The service was quick and friendly. Our friends had questions about some of the dishes which the waiter 'Moon' was only too happy to answer. The meal came in good time and was one... More

We use to love this indian and eat here several times a month. Unfortunately I feel that it is starting to lack in certain areas. Carpets are dirty and worn food not as good as it use to be. Really needs an injection of care to get it back up to where it was especially for the money you spend.... More
