“Great authentic Indian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Had an early Sunday meal here and we were not disappointed, the choice from the menu made our decision very difficult. The restaurant is very large and as it was very quiet there was no atmosphere, but on a busy Friday or Saturday night I should imagine it would be much better. The food we ordered was both fresh and extremely tasty and service matched in every way.
Well worth a visit

“Authentic Pakistani Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

I have been here a about 3 times and each time the food and service has always been of a high standard! The staff are welcoming and waiters deliver great customer serices - they have been trained well by the looks of it!

Can't beat the desi chicken tikka masala and the desi karahi gosht and of course the family naan was more than enough for the 3 of us!

The manager Nickson was welcoming and you could see that he had a lot of involved of how the staff have been trained and he always looks like he is on top of things making sure the waiters are giving the best service!

Can't wait to come through to Glasgow again for my next meal at Akbars - craving it big time!

“Akbars - Glad they've made it to Glasgow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

The Akbars restaurants are some of the best Indian Restaurants in the UK. Having lived in Leeds 6 years ago where I first discovered Akbars, I'm really glad they have made it up to Glasgow. The food is fantastic. I recommend the Vegetable Pakora (Its actually an assortment of different Veg) and the Chicken Chilli Balti. Make sure to try one of the Family Naan's!

I hope they make it up to Aberdeen in the near future! :)

“Truely Amazing Indian Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Amazing tasty food with a large selection to choose from. I was very happy to see that there was a large vegetarian choice. Freshly made and honestly the most amazing food I have ever tasted. I recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone. Very affordable and the service by Naveed was very friendly. He was able to recommend dishes and made us feel very at ease. Will be back again and again!

“Fantastic food, excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

The food is fantastic. Portions are massive and one rice between 2 is plenty. Can't beat the garlic nann. Been before and definitely will be back again.
