Visited with family and would not return. The service was great but the food was poor. The owners should really review the amount they spend on their ingredients, as people are not silly and do not assume it is good just because it is covered in a sauce. The salads were just plates of lettuce and chick peas, not a... More

Absolutely love it here! The food is always excellent and the staff are so friendly. We were served by Tahir and Sham, both were really lovely and attentive. This is the only place I will ever come for a curry!

This place is busy, book a table. Take out is also available. No Siht, this is the best place to eat in Rotherham if you like hot dishes. Not much to choose from if you don't. Recommend highly. Take out collection is also available. Again lines are busy so call in plenty of time. Cons. Staff can be abrupt, more... More

Recently went to Akbar's Rotherham to celebrate my birthday. This truly is a fantastic experience in Indian quality food and hospitality. We were made most welcome upon arrival, escorted to a table where rose petals were promptly scattered, then enjoyed the food, atmosphere and quality service provided.

Went as a couples meal and a group meal. Really dark downstairs so we needed to use phone light to read the menu, whereas the upstairs room was bright. Huge choice of food. Excellent quality and quantity

Fantastic venue for meal with friends or a partner. The giant naan are unbelievable ! I'm coeliac and they can cater for me Seperate bar area to wait until table is ready as I think you can't book unless it's 10+ dining.

As I have a temperamental stomach I thought I'd play it safe and have the lamb shank. I asked for it to be mild, when it came it looked georgeous but my goodness it was hot. It seems as though all of our orders were hot and everyone specifically asked it to be cooked how we wanted it. The service... More
