:P Arktastic! Thank you for opening this terrific restaurant in the burger/pizza saturated boardway quadrant. Since this is an authentic restaurant, their food is much more flavourful than a lot of other Indian restaurants which tend to favour heat or creamy dishes over flavour. The...More

We live near the restaurant and typically order-in one or twice every month. Quality is always good and their butter chicken, chicken vindaloo, and naan bread are particularly exceptional. Prior to finding this restaurant we tried about 10 different Indian restaurants around the city and...More

We live near Akbar's Own and have gone there several times. Three times we've taken out-of-province guests. Usually our experience has been good - both food and service. However recently we had a very poor experience when we took someone from Toronto. We all asked...More

This family restaurant presents the best of Indian food. The dishes are prepared in metal pots which keep your food hot throughout your entire meal. Their traditional East Indian flavours are mouth watering and the service is very good.

This is our go-to Indian restaurant in our hood. We have dinner here a couple times a month and it is consistently delicious. When we're tired and don't feel like cooking, we ask: Should we go out? And where? Akbar's Own is the answer. My...More

South Granville
The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous
mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The
blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic
collection of entertainment, from theatres and
cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch
souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is
one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of
what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and
