As good as always

It has been nearly a year since my last visit to Akbar's, and so with my it being my birthday we decided to return and see if the food and service were still as good as they had been on our previous visits. We arrived at 17:00 and were the first party in, and offered any table for our party... read more

Even though there were so many, they were all really well behaved and obviously having fun. The take out service was great, really well organised,... More
