Visited on a spur of the moment and glad we did, food was excellent, atmosphere great but most of all the service was outstanding. Our host Raj was superb, nothing was too much trouble and he made sure we were well looked after.

Lovely food and great service. The nan trees were enjoyed by all members of the group and there is a wide selection which suits most tastes. When we went to done the restaurant was very warm and we were under a fan/heater blowing warm air. We asked a couple of times for this to be turned down but it didn't... More

My partner and I arrived at Akbar's at 9.30pm on a Wednesday evening and were not seated until 10pm. The waiters were very rude and unfriendly and it took 20 minutes and over 3 attempts asking different waiters to take our order before anything was done. The atmosphere was terrible, drunk people stumbling around the restaurant and shouting. The food... More

Visited here 11/02/17 with friends, 10 in total. Food excellent, service excellent! Yes the Naan breads are legendary, but the food was very well presented, from starters to mains. Most importantly, the food we ordered when it arrived was hot and freshly prepared, Ample portions too, not over-faced. The place was hammered, and people were patiently waiting for a table... More

Visited Akbar's on valentines night with hubby. The whole experience was pretty much plain average. To be honest no one really seemed to know what they were doing. I understand that it was busy but the staff were all over the place. Plates from starters didn't get taken away from our table until our mains arrived. As more people were... More

Went here for the first time on Saturday night. The food was fantastic with an excellent choice. It was a little bit noisy and in places dark but altogether a very good evening!

This was our guest visit to Akbar's. I found the restaurant a great place for a party. The food served was authentic Asian. Some of the dishes like Nihari & Chicken tikka were so tasty. The started and mains were a good portion and served by courteous & knowledgeable staff. We had to wait for 30 minutes before getting a... More

Another overrated restaurant. I just dont think carrying a naan bread under your armpit is appropriate to serve to customers. Understandably they are large but please do the extra trip from the kitchen. Food is standard. Service standard. Wouldn't go again. The end.
