Seems a strange spot for a sit down Indian, but don't worry it's worth a trip. The Guys are friendly and the place has a contemporary level of decor with an Indian vibe from the music. Food is of good quality and plenty of it and fear not you can see but can't hear the traffic. Enjoy your visit.

Every meal I've ever had here has been superb, you can sit in or take away. If you sit in I would recommend you book as it is always very busy! The location is the only downfall but the food is so good it doesn't matter! The staff are extremely attentive and friendly. I would recommend the chicken chat starter... More

A large family party, we dined here last night for a celebration having booked in for the 8.30pm sitting. Unfortunately the earlier sitting occupying the large area we'd booked had apparently arrived late so it took nearly 45 mins for us to be seated. You need to bear in mind that this is a possibility if you book for a... More

We came to celebrate my sister's birthday and were not disappointed. The food and service was excellent and is a well anointed venue. Don't let the unorthodox location put you off; Akbar Dynasty is excellent:

Currently you need to book a table, as it gets busy most nights, especially towards the weekend. They operate 2 sittings every night: 6pm or 8pm. Allow up to 1 hour for your mains to arrive from time ordered if they are busy...worth the wait.

Went for a meal with friends on Easter Sunday. Staff were very amiable and we were all greeted with a handshake. We were seated almost immediately and a drunks order taken. Drinks arrived with the obligatory poppadoms. We all had a starter and main course all of which were delicious. Portion sizes were ideal for sharing and the naan breads... More
