very reasonable price. Basement location may not be appealing but good food makes up for it. Good and friendly service.

The buffet had a wide variety of delicious options--several chicken and lots of veggie options...didn't notice any lamb. Food was well seasoned, but not too spicy. The service was friendly and fast. There was light music playing in the background, but it was quiet enough to easily converse.

Service is quick and helpful. Waitress has worked there for 30 years. She knows the Indian food menu well in detail. Cozy and romantic spot. On Charles Street. Down stairs off of sidewalk. You can miss the name "Akbar Restaurant", if you don't look. Quick to take order and not long to service your food. Very flavored and taste great.... More

The food is quite bland, flavorless for Indian food; it seemed to have been made quite a while back - not at all fresh. I ate in the evening: wee these the leftovers from the buffet? It is also the first time I ever asked a restaurant to change a glass for me; it was broken leaving 1/3 inch of... More

I was thrilled that Akbar still existed. I visited it 8 years ago and had the best meal imaginable. I went on the coldest day, but it was worth the trip.fI had a fantastic meal and they even had cardamon tea! It is a white table cloth restaurant (which I love) and a buffet lunch. Since I have very specific... More

Visited Akbar for dinner on a recent business trip. Very good food and service. The owner came around and talked to customers.
