We came to celebrate my sister's birthday and were not disappointed. The food and service was excellent and is a well anointed venue. Don't let the unorthodox location put you off; Akbar Dynasty is excellent:

Currently you need to book a table, as it gets busy most nights, especially towards the weekend. They operate 2 sittings every night: 6pm or 8pm. Allow up to 1 hour for your mains to arrive from time ordered if they are busy...worth the wait.
