In a slightly strange place (for a restaurant) beside the A66, this is a super place to eat. The service was courteous and the food delicious. We went as a party of 4 (so can't comment on the difficulties mentioned by other reviewers who went as part of a bigger group), had a most enjoyable evening. We had the banquet... More

Went here for Valentine's Day, staff were very friendly and good atmosphere. The food was lovely the only thing that lets them down is that the service is very slow apart from that was really good.

Couldn't cope with the booking for 10 we made. Slow service terrible seating arrangements and an ignorant waiter. Ruined an engagement party. I will endeavour to make sure we and anyone we know never waste our time again at this place.

Keep coming back here. The food is one of the best Indians ever! Looks out of place on the side of the A66, but it's a rare find. Recommend to all x

Although Indian cuisine wouldn't be my first choice, we went to the Akbar Dynasty with friends to celebrate their Wedding Anniversary and I was very pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, as was the service. The onion baji's were the best I've ever tasted. It was very busy at 6pm on a Tuesday evening even though the Restaurant is not... More

Although it's location is a bit out of the way, I would definately recommend to go if you like Indian cuisine. Will definately be returning in the near future. Its one of... More
