Terrible food and average service. I came expecting the delights of akbars in bradford but unfortunately i was bitterly disappointed as the food was not upto scratch. I also noticed, whilst waiting almost an hour for mains in an otherwise quiet night, that there was no actual cooking going on in the kitchen. Sure the naans are bigger than your... More

Decided to try this Indian Restaurant I'd heard so much about. We went on a Monday night and it was packed. We only had a short wait however. They served the best curry I have ever had. It was so tasty and fresh. The naan bread was huge. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Server was attentive, waited a long time for starters to arrive, then another long wait until mains arrive and the place was not over busy. The quality was well below par with everything, inc rice , swimming in a tsunami of oil/gee, the presentation of the rice just thrown onto a side plate I found poor. Value for money I... More

Very nice, bit of a wait to be seated. but very warm welcome. We just had a main meal and was very filling. The Nan bread was the best Nan bread I've ever had! Bill was very reasonable. Will definitely go back and would recommend it to a friend :-)

The food is absolutely stunning and presented very well. The service was good but could have been more attentive. The seating is quite cramped which ruins the dining experience and makes you feel very uncomfortable. The atmosphere is rather loud and rowdy instead of a nice, quiet atmosphere as it should be.

You have to visit this restaurant. Superbly laid out, with low key decor entirely fitting with the Indian food it serves, Akbars is one of a chain, all using the same name. The food is absolutely first class and presented in a unique (to me at any rate) way. Chefs bring the food to the table, naan breads hang upright... More

Nothing Special, Okay food but for the price not worth it no better than a takeaway. Menu needs updating with new prices as there were discrepancies with the end bill which caused problems. Staff need to slow down and not rush about especially considering the lack of space between tables, result of this was food was smeared on clothing that... More

Been here on lots of occasions and the food is consistently good. Service is usually very good also, if not a little slow sometimes at busy times but this is understandable.

Food is top notch,it's smart with class service and they do massive nann breads which is always a brucie bonus.. It's the curry gaff I've been to the most. So get that curry smashed in and don't hold back on the nann bread.. U deserve it
