Great food and great service!

I have been to Akbar's a number of times now and am always amazed at the consistency in the quality of food and service. It doesn't matter what day of the week you go, it is always busy. The naan breads are legendary and the service is excellent. Considering how busy this place gets, that is a big... read more

We have been a regular visitor to Akbars since it first opened, and I have to say the biggest compliment I can pay them is that the food is always consistently good. The only issue is not being able to book a table in advance, although I understand why this policy is in place due to how busy the place... More

As usual the food here was great. But when we arrived there were two chefs loitering around the skips smoking, Not a very appealing welcome to the restaurant. Food and ambience is great a wait staff very friendly, However when it was time to pay the waiter put my card in the machine and asked how much I want to... More

The good here is always fantastic. There is a lot of choice, the waiters and friendly and knowledgeable and the food is always perfect. It is by far the best curry house I have ever been to

Visited Akbars for a friends birthday on Saturday 11th April! Food was outstanding and the service excellent. The staff knew it was my friends birthday so they brought out a desert with a sparkler in it and sang happy birthday. The atmosphere is really good and it always looks busy which is a good sign! Overall it's an excellent place... More

We've been a few times now and it's definitely my favourite curry house. I had the Rasham Lal lamb yesterday and it was hands down the best curry I've ever eaten, all be it a tiny bit mild in heat for me personally. Starters were excellent, sides are wonderful and very generous, service was exceptional. Would recommend.

Good curry, average service and average surroundings. Could do with a bit of decorating. Nicer places to go for curry in the same price bracket.
