Usually go to Akbars in Manchester, but thought I'd try this one fir a change. The bar/waiting area is a little cramp/none existant, but the food and service is of the excellent standard that I've come to expect from an Akbars restaurant. I'll definately visit again

We actually ate at Cafe Akhbars on Leeds road. The place is modern and tasteful inside.
The place was not very busy at the time of day we went (1 o'clock in the afternoon on a Thurs)
but still we were crammed in to one long table. It was close to Chriatmas time and i guess they were expecting work parties. There was very little elbow room and it was all very snug. The food more than makes up for the cramped conditions though. The starter was one of the best i have had for ages and i eat curry on a regular basis! We had mixed starter and the chops, kebabs and fish were all equally as tasty. The curry and we had 3 to chose from and all 3 were very nice. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we had other members of our party turning up late and they catered for them by bringing them fresh food out and also making them buttered naans(mmmmm) rather than the plain ones on offer. The menu was really good and would be worth another visit to check out something new on that. The dessert menu was vast too with wonderful sounding pudding on it. I have never seen as many differant and lovely sounding ice creams in a curry house before. There is also a specials board with great puds on too. Definatly worth another visit (soon)

You should book because this restaurant is rightly busy. They discovered a winning formula- good food at a good price, and they are winning.
You will win too.
Get the family Naan with any thing, but get a family Naan it's fun.

Always book for this restaurant as it is so popular. The last time we went we had to book a week in advance. The food is superb and the service as good. I have yet to have a bad meal and have never been disappointed by the quality. They also do a superb take away that is as good in every way as what is served in the restaurant.

My family and I are regular visitors to Akbars and have never been disappointed. Yes the place is really busy but the service and food are second to non. We have different choices each time we go and we have always been really pleased with the food. We always request a 15 minute gap between the starters and mains and have never encountered any problems doing this. The food is very reasonably priced but the drinks are quite expensive so can soon put your bill up. Make sure you book a table though, don't just turn up or you might not get in !!
