So my team at work decide for Xmas diner lets go Akbar's.. I'm personally not a fan of the place but decided to go with the majority. So we arrived and got sat down quite quick. Starters were good no issues there ......One colleague arrived 30 minutes late and this was after our mains order had been put through......Problems start here. My colleague orders her main and starter ....they both arrive before anyone else’s meal ....MMM I thought how odd seeing we had to wait 15 minutes for our mains...this to me suggest heating of cooked already cooked.......The waiter then just plonked food on the table not even attempting to make space on a table full of dips and un collected cutlery ....The size of the Naan has to really be addressed especially when one is trying to have a conversation . What is that thing doing in my face covering half the other side of the table? As we had 2 Naans no one spoke for half the meal.
The other issue.......The waiters did not excuse themselves when collecting anything from the table and I found myself having to keep shifting so that there was no body contact ......The main waiter at our table was so close to proximity that this made my female colleague uncomfortable. I mean who collects items from over the shoulder and I mean literally ...This was done throughout the service and really annoyed me???? ...We had to ask for cutlery to be replaced after our starters and also replenishment of napkins. The mains were ok at best and having already witnessed the miracle of my colleagues meal arriving before mine I already pre concluded what I was having was heated food. As stated at the start of this review, this place is not my cuppa tea due to past experiences (deli belly after a meal at the Eastgate branch) and will not ever bother going again
