First time at Akbar’s today and I was very impressed! The food is very reasonably priced and the portion sizes cannot be grumbled at. Also, the giant “family naan” is a must have and definitely worth it – very tasty as well. The “Big un” …

Where to start. Booked a table for 19:30, if your reservation gets confirmed you don’t then expect to be waiting in like for another 25 minutes for a table to become available? The setting is so noisy you can’t hear people at your table …

Attended for a work event and was impressed by the quality of food, we had a set menu and you got a large starter, 4 curries w/rice & dessert. And they serve the largest naan breads I’ve ever seen, well worth the visit if you like Indian food. More

Superb curry, good large portions. Our waiter was lovely, friendly and chatty.

Big place, quite loud, bustles a little impersonal. Lots of Asian faces which is always a good sign in a curry house!

Good food and huge portions but the service is horrible was told food would be out in 15 minutes and it came after 45 minutes. Went once before this and I had a reservation for 7pm and I was not seated until 8:30 been to other Akbar’s branches before but only this was seems to be poorly run and unorganised.
