I have not visited for a while as I have a newborn and the 5pm opening time is not ideal in that respect. However, I was not disappointed upon my return, as always a great atmosphere, great speedy service but most of all great food!! Well done! Ps: opening earlier on a Saturday/ Sunday would be a welcome addition!

We used to live in Manchester and regularly enjoyed a visit to Akbar's. Always loved it! Last night we returned as visiting a friend, so we took him out for dinner to one of our fave places for a trip down memory lane! Arrived and was greeted by the hostess who passed us straight through to the restaurant, we were... More

Felt i had to add a review after giving such a excellent one a couple of years back. I don't usually moan but here we go, presentation was bad chipped plate, mine was dirty !!. Had to ask for glasses and bottles to be removed to make room on the table for the next order. Lamb chops starters were dry,... More

Visited on a spur of the moment and glad we did, food was excellent, atmosphere great but most of all the service was outstanding. Our host Raj was superb, nothing was too much trouble and he made sure we were well looked after.

Lovely food and great service. The nan trees were enjoyed by all members of the group and there is a wide selection which suits most tastes. When we went to done the restaurant was very warm and we were under a fan/heater blowing warm air. We asked a couple of times for this to be turned down but it didn't... More

My partner and I arrived at Akbar's at 9.30pm on a Wednesday evening and were not seated until 10pm. The waiters were very rude and unfriendly and it took 20 minutes and over 3 attempts asking different waiters to take our order before anything was done. The atmosphere was terrible, drunk people stumbling around the restaurant and shouting. The food... More

Visited here 11/02/17 with friends, 10 in total. Food excellent, service excellent! Yes the Naan breads are legendary, but the food was very well presented, from starters to mains. Most importantly, the food we ordered when it arrived was hot and freshly prepared, Ample portions too, not over-faced. The place was hammered, and people were patiently waiting for a table... More

Visited Akbar's on valentines night with hubby. The whole experience was pretty much plain average. To be honest no one really seemed to know what they were doing. I understand that it was busy but the staff were all over the place. Plates from starters didn't get taken away from our table until our mains arrived. As more people were... More
