Invited with a party of 30 business colleagues and we started arriving from 8.30pm. Quickly provided with drinks and seated at a very long table. Warm, crisp poppadums and chutneys served quickly but surprised only one waiter taking orders for the starter, This task took considerable time as did the provision of food. However, most agreed that both quantity and... More

We visited here as a birthday party in April 2017 and we were not disappointed. We were seated promptly and the restaurant itself is massive with modern and classy decoration. We parked fine with the large car park. We cannot fault anything - Service was fast and friendly and the food was cooked perfectly and was amazing. We both left... More

My partner and I have been regular visitors to Akbars over the past few years. That shows how much we love this place! The curry is incredible! All portion sizes are HUGE and we always take home leftovers...sometimes I get 3 meals out of one curry dish, so it's amazing value for money. Starters and drinks are also really great... More

Overall the food was disappointing didn't taste anything... More

It's a big establishment but with plenty of staff and food constantly being delivered to the table it has a vibrant and lively feel to it. It's noisy but you can hold a conversation. The food was excellent, hot and plentiful.

It's not much to say, if you want to impress someone with indian food in a nice cozy place, then go to Akbar's. Do 1000% ask for their nun bread!!! YUMMY :)

Yes, this is my first time at Akbar's and it certainly impressed in many ways. I've read the mixed reviews and accept different views but for me what impressed me the most was two clear things 1) Service was excellent. Our waiter was clearly very comfortable with such a large party, relaxed and very efficient in his manner and full... More

I have been here several times usually at the suggestion of others, personally I prefer somewhere calmer and quieter where I know what sort if evening I am going to have. For me the "problem" with Akbars is that the experience is different each time due to the size of the place and the amount of staff there. Unsurprisingly you... More
