Hands down one of the best Indian meals I’ve ever had. The owner was super nice, the service was great and the food was excellent. The samosa was incredible, so were the chicken tikka masala and the paneer.

Excellent food and large servings, so be careful not to over order. Raj is friendly, helpful and will explain the food and how it should be combined with sauces and spices. Do not leave Choengmon Beach without visiting Akbar.

While I wouldn't rate this #1, it is definitely a top three choice in samui. The number 1 spot I would pick is Haveli in Bophut, but this was so close to the ritz carlton and their food was quite good.
