always busy

Good car park - always busy with a lot of ethnic eating there it is normally a good indication of how good the food is. Lots of variety on the menu.Not expensive if you don't drink! Staff welcoming and good service. Lighting inside could be better, but the only downside. Very popular.

We visit the akbars in rotherham every week, and it serves the best indian cuisine in the area by far. The staff are always polite and friendly and the food gets better every time. We would highly reccomend to anybody who wants a quality meal at an affordable price.

Met with a couple if clients for dinner. Service was friendly and food arrived in food time. Had the Roushan Lal which was lovely. All of our partt thoroughly enjoyed our food and would recommend it to anyone. The place was also a good price, so for that I give it 5 as good value.

I had a dinner there. Nice restaurant from the inside. The food was perfect. Big portions. Great naam. Well the beers are not too good, but okay. The staff is very friendly. Everyone(!) is asking how everything is. Maybe a little too much. Overall a must go. Would go there every time again.

Whenever we feel like going for meal out, Akbars is always the top of our list; Reliably perfect every time. We came here the other night after leaving another restaurant because of a bad experience - we wish we'd just stuck to what we know to be good and came here first. From the moment you walk in, the staff... More

I have eaten at Akbars many times over the last few years. All comments about the food are covered well by other reviews, my experience always good. What I think is commendable is the service is good no matter if it is a couple or a group of 12. Many other establishments could learn a lot from this. My particular... More

He is definitely an asset to the team. Every single time we visit, the food quality never alters. Lovely, lovely food. Never ever had a bad meal. Will... More
