Never been before, staff where helpful and food was good, felt very bright in the building, slightly dimmer lights would give a nice atmosphere. Worth a visit.

This restaurant was opposite our hotel so we thought we'd give it a go. My wife,my 2 daughters and I were not disappointed. My eldest daughter doesn't like curries so we asked if they could just cook the chicken normal on the grill without any of the spices and my youngest daughter doesn't like her curry to spicy. None of... More

The best Indian food I had eaten until I visisted Akbars was made by an Indian friend of mine. It was prepared for days and we dined for days! However Akbars is a close second to that experience. The naan bread for starters is amazing and HUGE! Watch what size you order! In genral the mail meal was well cooked... More

Akbars Newcastle a total nightmare which culminated with the Police attending. I booked a table for 20 at the beginning of the week for 20:30. We arrived in 2 groups 15 at 20:10 and 5 at 20:25 all well before 20:30 (the manager later lied to the Police saying we arrived in "dribs and drabs") 21:30 after several complaints we... More

We visited this restaurant midweek, Wednesday evening with a couple of friends. The restauraunt is lovely with a busy vibe and the food lovely. The service however leaves a bit to be desired with the staff although very pleasant, need a bit of training on customer service. Everything seemed to be a bit of a rush and our table was... More

I have eaten in Akbars before a couple of years earlier on a works outing and enjoyed it so as I was staying in a hotel next to it on business I thought I'd give it another whirl! It's very plush and trendy inside and is clearly marketed as an upmarket Indian with prices to match!!! I was shown quickly... More
