The food portions have shrunk and the prices have risen. The quality of food has gone downhill too. Overall in not impressed with akbars as it used to be decent.

Visited here for a friend's leaving do and left feeling slightly disappointed by the experience. It was a lot quieter than normal for what should have been a packed Friday evening, but was this down to the food quality or recent rumoured food rating. Chose the Chicken Nambali that I have always loved in the past, but this time I... More

The food was fab; minus the service where the plates were being taken as we were eating; after the mains was done, they gave the refreshment tissues, although we were still wanting to have dessert...when the mains was ordered weren't asked how we wanted it; whether it was mild hot etc... It was too hot for me to eat...

Have been going to Akbar's since I can't even remember. Past few times it has been a downward spiral as far as service and quality of food goes What a shame to kill a brand like this

I have been a customer of akbars/akbars since my teens. Always enjoyed their food whether it be here in Bradford or at their eateries in leeds/Manchester. Without making this review as long as a novel, all I will say is that they have lost a very loyal customer of theirs over something that could have been resolved quiet easily. I... More

Really didn't enjoy my first visit. Decided to take some friends that were visiting for the first time and felt it was the wrong choice. The Waiters are not friendly at all, the food is very basic.. the crowds that attend are youngsters having rowdy birthday parties

Great for their prices and the food is always consistently great. They have the best lamb chops I've ever tasted and their curries are always on point. Staff are always polite including management. If your not satisfied your complaints are always taken seriously that's if you have anything to complain about. I like to sit in the booths whether their... More
