Beautiful food, reasonable prices, great service, abit dark in there and they don't sell pints. Only bottles of wine and bottles of beer n lager. If you order a naan bread, one between four people is enough because they are massive. Great friendly atmosphere. Would definately recommend.

It is a few years now since I went to Akbar's, and I used to go "regularly", the place has fantastic decor inside, always seemed busy with a buzz in the air from the diners having a great time, their nan bread is legendary in size, and the pricing of their menus seem fair enough. However my enthusiasm was eventually... More

This is big restaurant and is one of a chain. Food is the usual as in most Indian restaurant. Most regions represented except for South India. The nans are mega large are brought to the table on a stand looking like a sail.

We arrived early on Saturday as we had a party of eleven including children and didn't want to have to wait for a table. Everyone's needs we're catered for, all the waiters were very helpful, making some dishes mild and adding favourite ingredients to some dishes to make them extra special. The place was full by 6pm, and despite this... More

It has been a few years since I have been here however I am still dreaming of the chicken saag dish which me and my wife had. We went here as we were in Manchester for the weekend to watch Manchester United play and had come from London for one night. The place was very busy and we were made... More

Shabir H, Owner at Akbar's, responded to this review

Really sorry for the service from the staff, It is unacceptable from them the force you into buying drinks, not to forget to mention being rude the paying customers. Did you happen to catch the waiter(s) name? We apologize again from this and hope this issue doesn't deter you coming back to us. More
