I booked a table for 2 a week in advance for Saturday night at 9pm. When we got there we had to wait 15-20 mins to even be seated, and were given one of those vibrating, flashing devices. We stood waiting with a bottle of wine and two glasses as there were no seats. When it flashed, we were taken to our table, which hadn't even been cleared. The waiter removed the dirty plates, but never brought us any cutlery or napkins. However the waiter did manage to sprinkle rose petals all over the table...
We had to ask twice for tap water as the staff were not listening. We also had to ask twice for the bill. For the experience we had, Akbars is too expensive and I would not return. Food ok - I had the lamb and spinach balti, the lamb wasn't very tender but overall it was alright. Naan breads lovely.
Also the "happy birthday" song they play for customers is severely irritating. In our 90 minutes or so at Akbars, the song was played for a customer at least 8 times.
Don't believe the hype about Akbars, go to Sachins instead. Nicer food and better service.
