Fantatstic food, great service, possibly the best Indian restaurant I have eaten in... I had the chill masala, hot and spicy 🌶 with a garlic naan. Fast friendly service and fantastic food. This is the place to eat curry in Coventry

Good food but be careful of the offers. A couple of us went to Akbar's 2 weeks prior and the food was very nice. We ordered the 2 courses which means we get the 3rd free. At the time we were told that there was only ice cream left so we just had that. Since the food was nice we... More

A return visit after 5 years, as Akbars reduced the quantity of food in takeaways, but charged the same. Decided to have a meal this time due to recommendations. We were welcomed back but we were overcharged by £24 on drinks,and the reason was, the bill was not cleared from the previous table. Since speaking to family and friends, this... More

What a fantastic restaurant. Naz and his team are brilliant. Sat 15th Jan was phenomally busy yet the whole restaurant was professional, and courteous. As for the table that left, that was totally their loss. My wife's food and mine was excellent and I truly believe that this is the best Indian food in the county. 100/10

We booked well in advance for a Saturday Evening Meal . On arrival the restaurant was chaotic with waiters running around like headless chickens!! We were eventually lead to our table and waited 20 minutes for our order to be taken despite asking for service. We asked how long it would take for our starters to arrive. We were informed... More

We stopped off here for a late night curry and although it was 10.45 and we had no reservation, we were welcomed in. We were shown to our seat by a very polite and pleasant gentleman and he took our order for soft drinks and popadoms. We munched through the popadoms and decided on our food and i ordered a... More

We have been in here on many occasions and had many take aways from here. The food is always 10 out of 10 so is the Services. I'm a fussy eater and will only have chicken tikka main with fried rice it's the best in Coventry. So moist, not over cooked like some I've tried, the right heathers as in... More

Having heard good reports about this restaurant, we visited last night and it did not disappoint. The service could not be faulted despite the restaurant being very busy. We all had a delicious meal which was presented efficiently and beautifully; each of us had something different and everyone was more than satisfied with their meal. We are looking forward to...

The restaurant looks nice, but I found most of the waiters a little abrasive and rushed. I am a vegetarian and ordered the vegetable samosa for the starter. It arrived and was called a vegetarian samosa but when I bit it into it was a meat samosa. They had got the orders mixed up. I have been vegetarian for 35... More
