Popadoms were good though I do not like having to pay for the pickles most places I go to they are complimentary even though... More

We went here last month after eating at Akbar's in Bradford, Manchester, York, Leeds and Birmingham. This is most definitely the best out of all the above. The service was great as always. The food was hot, well presented and absolutely delicious. The food was very authentic and cooked to perfection. The restaurant is wonderfully decorated with more attention to... More

First time visit with friends who eat here frequently. Friendly, helpful staff. Food was fresh, delicious and of a high standard. Although extremely busy we were seated very quickly and never felt under any pressure to rush. Great atmosphere but maybe a bit on the dark side. I can see why people return so often and look forward to our... More

The food is excellent quality and we have never felt rushed despite reading several reviews- if anything it's nice not to have to wait for your food. Vegetarian menu is vast and doesn't make you...

In March 2013 myself and 3 friends came to akbars for a meal to celebrate a friends birthday . The restaurant is very poorly lit and the seating dining area upstairs isnt anything special ..and the overall experience of been rushed by staff through your meal courses is horrible. From finishing my starter to having my main meal and dessert... More
