We go to Akbar s every few weeks and we are never disappointed with the food or atmosphere Sometimes you have to wait a while to get a table but if it wasn't so good you wouldn't be waiting. So just chill out with a cobra .Meal wise i have tried most of the menu over the years and now go for the Handi (meal of the day ) either Lamb or Chicken Tip dont order the large Naan bread unless you like eating in a permanent shadow !! they are HUGE !

Akbar's was recommended to us by a friend who had visited many times during his Uni days. He told us to look out for the huge nan's, and he wasn't kidding. We loved everything about our experience their, the ambience, the service, the food OMG!!! completely awesome curry. And the Nan bread, was to simply die for. We were shocked when we saw the bill, to say the least it was exceptionally reasonable, considering the quality of the food.
We have The Killers to thank for our return visit, that we shall make to Akbars in February as our original trip to Manchester was to see them, only the gig got cancelled. The experience in Akbar's certainly put us in a better frame of mind. Would be there every week if we lived closer.
Advice. Get there early or book because the place is bouncing within minutes of opening and Enjoy!!!!

Visited Akbar's last night with a couple of work colleagues following a recommendation from our taxi driver and had a lovely meal. The restaurant was really busy & we had to wait 20 minutes for a table, a good sign for a Tuesday night!
The food was very good, i had Chicken Chili Balti, spicy but not rediculous. The family naan are a show piece but were actually really tasty too.The food and drinks are reasonably priced and the staff were good fun without being over friendly.

Went for a family outing as a birthday treat, tried to book mid-week but they don't take bookings for less than 10 people during the week. Decided to just turn up anyway and were told 35 mins wait which I gather was not bad - however after 45 mins had to chase up our table. The restaurant had a great atmosphere, although did feel that the tables were crammed in a little so you could join in with the conversation at the next table! BUT the food is amazing. We each had a different starter all of which were very good but the king prawns were the winner for me. Good choice of currys, I had the chicken and mushroom balti which was lovely not too spicy. The best bit must however be the family naan which comes to the table hanging up on a rack, it was the best naan i've ever tasted. Looking forward to going again but will allow more time to just enjoy the whole experience and not plan to move on for drinks elsewhere.
