We regularly visit family in Coventry and always go to Akbars for the best Indian food. The attention to details and friendliness of the staff is second to none. We can't wait to visit again in a couple of weeks.

Great curry house not far from Coventry city centre. Service very good and attentive. Food was tasty, served at the same time for a party of 13 and hot in temperature. Good value for money. Free parking at the Ramada opposite too.

I would talk to them about what you want. I think they would try to accommodate your needs. For example ordering in advance so all dishes arrive on time. I have been there in a fairly big group of 12. They did their best but... More
