Iv been coming to akbars for a while and I find it wonderful. The food is amazing, staff is amazing, and the atmosphere is also amazing! Some people say it is dark, but it adds to the atmosphere and love it and recommend it to anyone. Cannot fault this place in any possible way. Should defiantly try.

Its very dark inside which is fine as it adds to the atmosphere and we had a drink at the bar which was nice. Seated straight after our drink and food served quickly, the food was average and the...

Went after lots of recommendations. The restaurant is nice inside and the food was nice, not the best I've had but the okra was gorgeous! The service was the thing that let it down and honestly I found the staff rude. They were busy but unhelpful and made me feel uncomfortable to be honest. Don't think I'll visit again
