What's nice about Akbar is that it's so authentic and still a sit-down, even romantic spot. It's not a bit like many other American-ized Indian restaurants, with heavier cream bases or tomato sauce-type bases. We've been here a number of times - this is the first time we've had the okra - which I could have made a meal of... More

We love Indian food, and Akbar (at least the one in MDR) is our favorite Indian restaurant. The food is always very good. We have taken various family and friends here, and it never disappoints. Akbar is a very small restaurant, does not take reservations for small groups, and can get very busy at prime hours, so there can be... More

When by wife and I are hungry for a good Indian dinner in the neighborhood, this is where we go. They will adjust the spiciness to your specifications. Prices are reasonable for the area.

We had an excellent meal here. I had the lamb khabar masala which was spicy as described and excellent lamb with wonderful tasting spices. Meanwhile behind me there were repeated flashes of light as other dishes being prepared were flamed. Service was excellent. The food was not fast, but then excellent food requires time for preparation and the ambiance of... More

Whenever I am in the Marina, my friend loves to eat at this restaurant. My favourites are the grilled lamb chops and the Brazilian Sea Bass - absolutely delicious. Though the food is delicious, the portions are smaller than most Indian restaurants and also the prices are higher than most. It is a great treat when you pay high prices... More

Always delicious Indian food -- vegetarian, seafood, and terrific breads freshly prepared. Can select spiciness level from 1-5, 2 is more than enough 3 will get you running for the beer. You can pay more money, but you wont get as good Indian Food. Dinner -- and a big dinner for 2 with a couple of beers under $50.

Have just returned to our Hotel after our first visit to Akbar. Food was really good, lovely spices and nan bread excellent. One word of caution...parking in their designated parking to the side of restaurant has left our rental car scratched on front bumper. Husband parked right up to wall so we used as little space as possible. Think twice... More

Great food and atmosphere. I order the chicken tikka, aloo paratha, basmati rice on a regular basis and it never disappoints. I love their food so much I used to have all dates take me there on our first date because I figured that even if the date sucked, I'd at least get great food!

We decided to try this restaurant for the first time. We arrived around 6:00 pm. We were seated and menus were already on the table. The restaurant was not full and there were several open tables but it still took about 15 minutes before our order was taken. We waited, and waited and waited until I was so hungry and... More

good food and the prices were reasonable. But they could work more on their service. I love the old fashioned Coke bottles that they have. Try their Lamb lamb biryani.
