Being on the A66 may put some people off, but it really is worth the effort of driving to; and considering how busy the restaurant was on Saturday, it looks like a lot of people would agree with me! Every time we visit the Akbar, the staff are always friendly, and even though they are usually rushed off their feet,... More

It's just one of those places you can visit and know your stay will be right. The service is very good and the food is faultless. What more do I need to say......

Lovely Indian Restaurant on A66 which means you need a car to get there. Nice friendly polite service. Nicely laid out, lovely furnishings. Food nicely flavoured but not too hot. Will give you leftovers to take home. Definitely worth a visit
