It was my daughter's 23rd birthday and she wanted to go for her treat. I'd heard so much about Akbar's that I was expecting a culinary delight. The sorry story is; Akbar's don't do Pathia! Tried to fob me off with a Balti? Sent it...More

Food is ok. Rushed straight to a table, popadoms arrived within seconds. Still eating those when the starters arrived. Bit of a breathing space allowed before the mains. Ridiculously sized naan for two. Place is like a canteen. Do not understand why it is so...More

Visited Akbar’s with friends for a Christmas party. I was very disappointed, the service was very slow and the food average. I also thought it was expensive for what we got. I won’t be visiting again!

I've eaten at Akbar's in Leeds and Sheffield several times. The food is always good. Strangely though on this visit they didn't have any chapattis so I had to have a roti which is odd because I thought they were made from the same dough....More

On a Manchester overnighter my taxi driver recommended Akbar's and I was very pleased he did. It was packed on a Monday night and for a restaurant of this size to do this, it must be getting something right. What was right was the food...More

The food here was sensational, I had the lamb chops starter which are just sublime, they are tenderised, coated in exquisite spices (not too hot) and have the most delicious charred edges! I followed this with the Tandoori Chicken Balti (Desi Style), it was exactly...More
