We were in Koh Samui for three nights and had food in Akbar's everyday. Lovely authentic Indian vegetarian cuisine. Paneer was extremely soft and delicious. We also tried mix vegetable, mutter mushroom, bhindi masala and all were equally good. Overall a truly satisfying experience. Akbar himself was very friendly and ready to help with the dishes that we should try.... More

The manager and staff are helpful and like to chat if you have any questions. We had a range of dishes including super lentil dahl curry and it was all... More

Our meals were accompanied with popadoms and dips (complementary) and a garlic naan both were very tasty. Our little one doesn't like spicy food but we were recommended a mild chicken dish and to my surprise my little one loved... More

This restaurant serves tasty, value for money Indian food. Also, the owner is able to customize the spiciness level based on your personal request. Humble and friendly customer service. We went back twice to this restaurant as it was really close to our hotel and they serve really good Indian food.

My husband and I went there for dinner last night and everything we ordered was delicious, easily the best Indian food we have ever eaten. Highly recommend trying the mint chutney which comes complimentary with your food. Prices of meals are very reasonable as well. We will be going there again over the next few days.

Being a very fussy Indian...I have to say I was really impressed! Really good service and great food. I warn you though, don't come here unless you have an empty stomach. Food portions are a really good size, great value for money and most importantly incredibly tasty! Another plus..great veggie food! My boyfriend loved the meat dishes too. Definitely worth... More
