My husband and I have been to this restaurant many times now and this is because of the great food and fantastic service. We have never been disappointed by the food and the service is something you would get out of a 5* restaurant. We always walk out of the restaurant with a smile on our faces because we are... More

I visited with my partner for his birthday and we were seated at a two... More

I'm really surprised to see the negative reviews here. This place is fab! We live nearby and have eaten and and had takeaway many times and have never had a bad meal and certainly have never experienced any rude staff - they are always extremely polite. Yes it's busy, but that shows how many other people rate it! My family... More

The prices here seem to be excessive for the quantity of food. The quality of the food is decent but seemed to lack anything special. When we went all the lights were on resulting over-illumination of the dining room. It was like sitting in your front room with the 'big light on!'

After hearing a lot of brilliant review of this place, decided to check it out there on Wednesday night. When it comes to Indian food I'm not very experimental so I stuck with my usual of butter chicken. It was beautiful, would highly recommend. Very generous portions, and all food was delivered, prepared and tasted wonderful. Staff were all very... More

We called at Akbars on the off chance on our way back to Middlesbrough, truefully we should have booked. When we got there, they said they were full but if we could wait 10 mins, they would see what they could do. We were glad we did, as they found us a table, but we had to be out by... More
