“Recommended, Great food, Great value & great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

We've been eating at the Akbar Tandoori in Kingston for nearly a quarter of a century!
After drifting away from regular visits several years ago when we became bored with the menu, we came back a month ago and magic the Akbar was as good or better than ever.
The menu is new, so is the decor & the furnishings; the owner recognised us after what must have been a 3 year gap.
Well recommended, service was excellent & the price is very welcome
We could just be more regular here

“Great curry, honestly priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

I have been going to this placs for donkeys years and it has never, ever failed me when I craved for "home cooked curry straight from the stove"! Akbar's claim to fame is an array of aromathic, spicy dishes made with fresh, wholesome vegetables and served in ubiqutous sizzling "korahi" cast iron dish. Service is very smooth and descrete, allways under a watchfull eye of a customer-friendly owner. Honestly, this place makes you want to jump on a next plane to Bangladesh!

“Good value food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Stumbled across this restaurant whilst out in Kingston. The restaurant is not the most upmarket I have been to but I could not fault the curry, prices and service. The restaurant is about 5 minutes walk away from the centre and I would definitely recommend it.

“Birthday dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

My friend who has an eye for good value and service recommended this restaurant for my birthday. I was not disappointed. Service was quick and attentive without being obtrusive, the food was subtle and delicately spiced and most of all very good value. It was quiet inside the restaurant and the decor was quite plain.Great location close to the centre of Kingston and a car park just across the road. Would definitely come again. 5 out of 5.

“Another great find - thanks to Trip Advisor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014 via mobile

Not knowing the area we wanted a good standard, good value Indian restaurant for dinner. We found Akbar on Trip Advisor and in light of the good reviews we went there. We were not disappointed! Great food, great staff and great value. We we there very early on a Saturday night and we were the only table at that stage, when we were leaving it was getting busy and no wonder - would return.
