We have been using the Akbar Dynasty for over 9 years now. It is a family run restaurant that values regular diners and welcomes new diners. Exceptionally clean. The food is very good. Our family favourites include chicken jaflon, prawn dansak and tandoori. Good range for vegetarians too. We find it best to book as the restaurant does get busy.... More

I love the chops in Akbar's so much and I have been to nearly all of the franchises. But I think the chops at the Middlesbrough one beats them all because they are much more spicier than usual. It has a bit of a kick to it. The curries are lovely here, I always go for the Roshan Lal. The... More

We have never been disappointed by either the fantastic service or superb food. The staff are friendly and efficient and always make us feel they genuinely interested in us as their guests. Food is well presented well flavoured and relatively good value for money. We have tried a few of the recommendations by the staff when we have been unsure... More

The restaurant was clean and beautifully decorated, the staff were friendly, polite and extremely helpful. The food was fantastic, it was cooked well with great presentation and there was a good choice of dishes on the menu. The toilets could use a little modernisation.
