Our first time here. You cannot book but we arrived on Friday night at about 7.15. We were seated in 10mins. There is a large bar area, so no problem waiting. This restaurant holds about 250 but do not be put off. The service was excellent, The food was first class and inexpensive. The atmosphere was brilliant. We will be going back to this restaurant without doubt.

Have tried on several occasions and food and service has always been excellent and portions are plentiful. Only down side is no reservations and they ALWAYS make you wait for a table

Friends took us to Akbar's and I am so very happy they did. Everything was fresh, spicy, and tasted delicious. I was especially impressed by the massive nan bread - it has its own iron device to hold it upright. The waiter was right, our party of six only needed one.

Easily the best curry restaurant in Manchester if not in the Uk. Excellent food, top service and the atmosphere is vibrant and very pleasant. You have to visit, I did......all the way from London. It was well worth it
