A previous reviewer (Safarfan) has got Akbar's down to a 'T'...fast curry of a certain standard washed down with Cobra and if you are happy with this then Akbar's will fit the bill. I like it when it suits and would certainly visit again but if you are after anything a little more refined then don't bother. It truly is... More

Tables are too close together! I was literally eating of someone elses plate! Other than that the decor is nice and the food is decent.

I have been to Akbar's at different branches. Although my favourite is the birmingham one but I really enjoyed the hospitality in the Manchester branch so I will visit soon again.

Food is awesome, Naan is amazing (coolest thing I've seen in an indian restaurant), staff could not be friendlier. Easy location to access, go early though a large place it does fill up.

For me this is the best curry restaurant in manchester. The food is second to none with its own distinct flavours. Service is very good also and you dont have to wait long for your food. When you get the bill at the end its shocking how cheap it is after considering the location of the restaurant and the quality... More

Came here in a group of 8 friends. Great atmosphere, very quick and friendly service especially with extra drinks. I have been to the Leeds and Middlesborough branches and all have lived up to expectations. Atmosphere was great especially for a Sunday night. Will be visiting again. Thanks !

Random evening dining for me and my bf. Wasn't too keen at first as i have visited other Akbars elsewhere and wasn't overly impressed with the food. However service from start to finish was a thumbs up and the food was no doubt amazingly tasty and by far the best Akbars food i have had. Defo returning again.

We were there in a big group of 20 people and the food we were served was neither delicious nor worth the money. It might be better when you can select from the menu individually but all in all it seemed a rather low class restaurant.
