Decent Indian restaurant. Both food and service are reasonably good. There are several paid parking structures within walking distance.

This restaurant has been going strong for a long time which is a solid vote in itself. Akbar has always been good food. Tasty offerings of all the favorites. Sticky sweet chutneys, savory tikkas, crunchy samosas wont fail to please you.
