Authentic Indian Cuisine, Right Under Your Nose

We had occasion to be in Baltimore for the weekend and my wife set up a dinner date with a friend from the 4th grade (no, I won’t tell you how long ago that was). The friend is Vegan and suggested Akbar (her favorite Indian restaurant). The restaurant was easy to find. There is paid parking across... read more

I have visited this restaurant twice while visiting my son in Baltimore. Both times, the food has been excellent, and the service very good as well! The menu is your typical Indian fare. It is served quickly, and the presentation is excellent! Everything is served in it's own dish with a warming candle underneath. The spices and sauces are just... More

I was out in Baltimore by myself, I ran into this little place. It doesn't look like much but I did not let the appearance or $9.95 lunch buffet price scare me away. The service was friendly, the price is right, the place was full, the food was great!

I'm not a very adventurous eater, and I hadn't had Indian food until I was convinced to try this place. You should either go with a person familiar with Indian food or at least have an idea of what you want to eat because the menus don't go into great detail about ingredients. However, the food is delicious! My only... More

This is a Mount Vernon staple for very good Indian food. And the owner aims to please when it comes to ingredients and spicing. Consistently yummie.

Pretty good spread and they kept it stocked. Food only warm and my favorite chicken tikka was very dry today.

My boyfriend and I ate here for the first time last night and we enjoyed every minute! I just happened to pick this place off Google maps on a whim. We wanted to have a nice night out. This place is in the basement, so it can be easy to miss if you aren't paying attention. The inside is cozy... More
