Having been to a few other Akbar restaurants I had high hopes that the food would be as good as those. I was not disappointed, the lamb chops starter were very tender and juicy and had no burnt parts which you usually get. For my main course I had the palak ghosht and this was cooked perfectly and the lamb... More
