Delicious food, plentiful portions and plenty to choose from on the menu. The venue is quite glamorous with plenty of attention to detail. The staff has great knowledge of the menu and even customised my dish to suit my taste Not my first visit and I'm sure it won't be the last

Food excellent - never fails in quality and value for money - surroundings are a little worn and the drink selection could also be more extensive . service could be better . Feel a bit rushed

Always had amazing food at Akbars, even the most discerning Indian connoisseur will love this - I know because even my mum loves it.

Hadn't been to Akbars for years and it's only a few minutes away, stopped going as the clientele weren't my cup of tea, felt like a cattle market every time we went. Arrived at 9.10 on a Saturday night and was met by the usual crowd of people smoking straight outside the front door (classy). To our surprise got a... More

Stopped off here after a day at Alton Towers, we were all starving & Akbars didn't disappoint! Delicious starters, nicely spiced food, great menu choice & the family naans are simply hilarious - they are the size of a large tray but still taste amazingly good. Staff were very pleasant too, we loved Zaf.

Absolutely love it here. Service is fab and speedy. Food is delicious. Easy to get to and parking on site although that busy sometimes have to park on the road. Menu is wide and varied with all the favourites. Occasionally ordered a curry that wasn't on the menu. Staff are all friendly.
