Always enjoy but......

I have been coming to this restaurant for years, food is always lovely and a nice atmosphere, makes going out for a meal special. Only starter I don't like is the onion bhajis....usually my favourite and the chicken pakora have got a lot smaller too. We came for valentines day (we have been since... read more

Staying in Sheffield and fancied a curry. Trip said this was nearest and I was not disappointed. Hassan was the perfect host, not rushing and allowing me to take my time. The food was the best I have tasted in a long while. Full of flavour and plentiful too. Thank you.

We visit here as a treat every now and then. The food is always hot, tastes awesome, staff are always friendly and the place always looks nice and clean. I Would certainly recommend this place to others.

Have been coming here probably 3 years or so with family and friends. Always good quality food, excellent service etc. When it first opened we always felt a little rushed by the staff and it was very dark inside, so much so it was difficult to see the menu's. But obviously they look at the reviews and react to them.... More

Good food every time I have been here. My only grinding issue is how dark it is! Some additional lighting would really lift the atmosphere. Always busy which says a lot!

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

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
