Very unusual setting but a great building and set up, this Indian has everything - a huge outdoor area, opulent decor, and good food. We went for the lunctime buffet, there was plenty of curry choices but not enough side order choices, the food was really good, and there is man who will cook you indian crepes to order. Great value for money.

The restaurant has nice decor. The staff was friendly and very attentive. They were also very knowledgeable about the food and made some very good recommendations for my family.

I chose this restaurant from the other reviews on TripAdvisor.. We were looking for authentic Indian food for a dinner with friends. The decor and seating is beautiful and comfortable. The food was delicious and the prices were reasonable.
The service was very slow. Even with less than 20 diners in the whole restaurant.
We did have a lot to talk about with our dining companions, however all that talking means we need a constant flow of water, at least! 3 of the 4 glasses were empty before our server came back to refill them.
I would order take out next time..and find a different restaurant to dine in.

You may need the assistance of your GPS to find the restaurant which is located behind the Office Depot building. It is a wedding hall, able to accommodate about 800 people (i'm guesstimating). And some space is dedicated to the restaurant. The decor is great, very nice and unique touches.
The best part of the restaurant is the service. I can't find anything wrong with our waiter. The service in Akbar was 1000% better than some really expensive restaurants i have been to in the past. My glass of water was never empty. The food was as amazing as the service.
We decided to order multiple appetizers instead of entrees so we can sample different dishes. I got the salmon which was deep fried (i know it sounds a bit odd but it was tasty), an order of jasmine rice, a chicken appetizer and vegetable samosas (2 but they were large), and garlic naan bread with a vegetarian dipping sauce. We were so full that we couldn't finish 60% of the food and those are just appetizers, i can't even imagine the size of actual entrees. If you are looking for great restaurants in Jersey and you enjoy Indian food, this place is a gem.
