I come here regularly. The place is very posh looking but price is reasonable. Everything is cooked to a very high standard and the service and staff are great.

Visited as part of a large party in December and I will never go to Akbars again. This place has a strong reputation so I was looking forward to finally eating here. The decor is impressive but that's probably the only positive thing I can say about my visit here. We had booked weeks in advance and paid a deposit... More

Work do for 8 people on a Tuesday evening. Very pleasant and attentive staff. Lovely curry of good portions and of course the excellent family nan bread . Lubbly jubbly!!! We were given two plates of complimentary fruit consisting of melon, oranges, grapes and strawberries. A nice little touch to clear the pallet ! I would return.

This place is shocking, service is terrible. Booked a table for 9, 2 days in advance, and didn't get seated until 11. SHOCKING!!! Never going to go here again and I don't recommend anyone else going there either. The food isn't even all that either definitely not worth going

Have to say worst indian food I have ever eaten. Had a bhuna that was watery & tasteless. The staff were excellent & took it away to add spices & probably drain the juice but it was still tasteless, nothing like a bhuna & not a tomato in sight, however my son was picking tomatoes out of his chick tikka...

Went on a Saturday night when it was heaving but as we'd travelled up from London to celebrate my husbands 40th (by returning to his home town) they went out of their way to accommodate us. We we're served by really lovely staff, our waitress had a great chat with us and our kids, the manager was so kind and... More

I went here recently for my other half's birthday, we arrived on time at 6pm and although i had booked i had to wait an extra 15 minutes for a table. Although this was annoying, it was on a saturday coming up to peak time so i could understand this. Once we were seated, the staff were very helpful, always... More
