We don't eat Indian food that often. We went to this restaurant on a recommendation and what a treat. Booking early is to be advised as it is very popular. The reason was obvious right from entering the restaurant. Very attentive staff. Good decor to the two eating areas. Excellent menu choice with "heat" value for each dish. The food... More

As soon as we entered we were greeted by fabulously attentive staff. This service continued throughout our meal . The food was fantastic and the choice tremendous. I had the tandoori trout to start and... More

We decided to try this restaurant on recommendations of friends who had been there. We had been passed it numerous times, during the day I might add, and often wondered if anyone ever went as it was at the side of an old, unused petrol station. However at night it is totally different. The carpark was full. The food was... More

First visit here primarily as you have to drive west to Darlington on the A66 to turn around to come all the way back, however very much worth the hassle of getting there. The décor is the first thing that strikes you. Simply delightful and very modern. The staff are well informed regarding the dishes on offer and the chefs... More

Been to the Akbar many times. The staff are so friendly, always a warm welcome. My other half is very fussy but he loves their curries and they will add or take away ingredients. Really nice food, nice atmosphere. My favourtie indian restaurant.

Heard good reviews about this place so thought il try it out, I wasn't impressed had to wait over an hour for starter and when starters arrived It was bland, the main course was ok I don't think I travel far a meal when it's average.
