Akbars is the most popular curry house in town. There is a reason for this, frankly food wise, it is the best. My three stars stems not from food quality but more for service issues. The staff were all very friendly but the problem with Akbars is that it is too busy. You can not book a table and you can be waiting up to 45 minutes to be seated. I like a drink before a meal anyway so that in itself is not a problem, however with the sheer quantity of people there are not enough seats.

Once you do get your table everything is very rushed, understandable as they need your table again.

I will go again as the food is worth it,

If you want a leisurely relaxing meal do not go to Akbars... if you want a decent curry in a quirky setting wit a bustling atmosphere you can not go wrong.

My husband and i ate here last week. One of the waiters scattered rose petals on our table (lovely touch) which impressed me. The food was absolutely scrummy! The service was perfect. Our waiter was called Khurram and very attentive! I would definitely recommend Akbars in Rotherham. Thanks guys! The Clarkes :0)
