Excellent service and amazing food!

Me and my partner visited Akbars and we loved the food, the service was swift but not rushed. By the time we got our main course we were so full but it was delicious and the waiter packed it all up for us to take home and even threw in a couple poppadoms :)

Go after 9 and the service is better the place is no longer heaving and the atmosphere more relaxed. I do think... More

Visited here many times over the years and it's my favourite place to go for a curry! Would highly recommend the chicken nimbali for a starter (chicken breast in paneer cheese with potatoes and salad) soooo tasty! There's a huge choice of curries and they are pretty flexible in making you things that are not on the menu as they... More

We attended for my partners birthday, there was a party of approx 50 of us! All the food was bought out at the same time! It was freshly made and piping hot. The atmosphere in the restaurant was amazing and the staff were very friendly!

Im not one for complaining but I felt so let down by akbars service and attitude Sunday night I could not not say anything. Ive been coming to akbars for over 5 years now, both in Rotherham, Leeds and Newcastle. Firstly what annoys me the most is that they are incapable of cooking my food the way I ask (madras... More

We had our wedding anniversary meal at Akbar's. Can't knock the food, really good, service very good, but the night turned out to be quite pricey. Not sure whether we'd go back. I made the mistake of telling them we were celebrating an occasion. At the end of our meal the Asian background music stopped and the speakers were suddenly... More
