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.

Been to this place many times and it never disappoints. They had some bad press lately in the northern echo being the worst place for hygiene. The food looked fresh and clean, the place is always spotless. Will be coming here for any years to come. Staff are always smiling and always willing to help.

First tried this restaurant about 10 years ago and it was amazing then. We have since been eating here on a regular basis. We've tried other Indian restaurants in the country but honestly, nothing compares! The food and service are outstanding; one of Darlington's little gems! The Cowan family.
