Our B&B Breakfast host referred us to this restaurant. (Greystone B&B, 2006 West 14th Ave). We enjoyed a very friendly greeting by our waitress and she answered all our questions with lots of knowledge and passion. We ordered several appetizers and entrees (mostly vegetarian) and all of them tasted divine. The whole dining atmosphere was worth while every dollar we... More

Four of us went for dinner at Akbar's and ordered a mixture of dishes requesting medium hot spice and it was all great. The service was the best I have seen in a long time and the quality of the meal was superb. The biggest surprise was the bill............it was so reasonable. will return many times.

We recently had a meal here after a walk in Stanley Park. The food was great, the service was great, the atmosphere was nice, and the price was very reasonable. We had no problem getting street parking nearby. We would not hesitate to go back. For the price, it was the best Indian food we have had in the Vancouver... More

We recently celebrated my husband's birthday at Akbar's. We shared the mixed grill (tandoori lamb, chicken, fish and prawns) with rice and naan. It was certainly enough for both of us. Our friends enjoyed the lamb saag. A celebratory mango ice cream and a couple of glasses of wine cost us about $60. We will return soon.

A delightful discovery. We enjoyed a post-movie meal with naan, vegetable rice biriyani and coconut chicken. The server was friendly and helpful, the atmosphere relaxed, and the food (and beer) was terrific. We finished off by sharing a delicious piece of mango cheesecake. When the cheque came I looked twice thinking something had been left off - it was actually... More

One of the best N. American Indian meals I have had in a long time. Excellent service and distinctive food that you don't always find at Indian restaurants. I would go back. The Nan bread came in various kinds and the pappadoms were in a cone shape allowing dipping into a fabulous cilantro chutney. Excellent.

Good restaurant, but they do NOT serve halal meat. Waitress was very nice but the restaurant didn't have a kids high chair or changing facilities in the washroom.

I had the veggie. It had two servings of different veggie Indian specialties of the house, naan, rice and salad. It was filling, tasty, served... More

1) Some friends and I were out last Saturday and came across Akbar's. It was busy and none of us had tried it so we figured why not give it a shot. We were seated faster than expected for how busy it was which was nice. Our server took our appy orders promptly, but with no rush while we looked... More

Neighborhood Profile
South Granville
The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic collection of entertainment, from theatres and cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and map out, all while taking in the hectic atmosphere of people coming and going, while others look for the best ways to spend their last few hours in the city.
