“Full of flavour!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

I had anticipations of this being an amasing curry from it's reputation from freinds I have in bradford. I've had better in Brick Lanes and also the safron club in sheffield was better.

Depending when you go depends on if you get chicken breast or meat that seems to have been chopped off the bone, this is not good.

I regularly eat hot curry dishes and really struggle with the chicken chilli balti that is hotter than most vindaloos, there seem's to be nothing from medium to hot.

Naan breads are the best naan I've had though and the atmosphere is good and the resterant is always full.

“Brilliant!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

This was a fantastic meal, everything was slightly spicier than on a normal Indian - which didn't bother me but may with others. We were the last ones in there and there was no rush for us to leave as we were very welcomed. Food was brilliant, would definitely go again!

“Best Rotherham/Sheffield Indian by far!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

I have been to Akbars most weekends since it opened. Always top notch curry and ive tried most of them. The staff are excellent. I love the atmosphere inside. Hugh naan breads!. Just a brilliant place for a meal! Sometimes it's really busy but that's a sign of how good it is! 11/10!

“Delicious food”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We visited a couple of weeks ago and despite arriving early (6.15pm) it was already quite busy and by 7pm there was a waiting list for tables. The waiters were friendly and helpful throughout the evening and despite the full restaurant service was very efficient and we were not rushed from the table after our meal. Our starters, mains and not forgetting the huge naan bread were all delicious. Great food and reasonable price, looking forward to the next visit!
