This restaurant and owner have been here for 10 years and that's rare in Ko Samui so he must be doing something right. Great food, good prices and great service. The manager and staff are helpful and like to chat if you have any questions. We had a range of dishes including super lentil dahl curry and it was all... More

We tried the vegetable samosas to start and for mains had the butter chicken & mutton sag all were excellent. Our meals were accompanied with popadoms and dips (complementary) and a garlic naan both were very tasty. Our little one doesn't like spicy food but we were recommended a mild chicken dish and to my surprise my little one loved... More

This restaurant serves tasty, value for money Indian food. Also, the owner is able to customize the spiciness level based on your personal request. Humble and friendly customer service. We went back twice to this restaurant as it was really close to our hotel and they serve really good Indian food.

My husband and I went there for dinner last night and everything we ordered was delicious, easily the best Indian food we have ever eaten. Highly recommend trying the mint chutney which comes complimentary with your food. Prices of meals are very reasonable as well. We will be going there again over the next few days.

Being a very fussy Indian...I have to say I was really impressed! Really good service and great food. I warn you though, don't come here unless you have an empty stomach. Food portions are a really good size, great value for money and most importantly incredibly tasty! Another plus..great veggie food! My boyfriend loved the meat dishes too. Definitely worth... More

We have been going back to Akbar's repeatedly over the last three months or so, always a very warm and friendly welcome and delicious tasty authentic Indian food. They even make dishes off the menu for us that we have requested. Can wholeheartedly recommend Akbar's for your next Indian food fix!

Really friendly spot on main road of Choeng Mon. It does double duty: the restaurant is happy to be your local curry-shop, serving up Anglo-American Indian food. Or, if you chat up the amiable owner, they'll put together some amazing, authentic Northern Indian food. Either way, you'll be happy.
