From the outside this place looks great, stylish interior, plenty of staff buzzing back and forth. But the experience doesn't live up to expectation. No draught beer so small bottles of kingfisher at £3.75 each. Pickle tray charged extra with poppadoms even though we didn't order so many. They delivered unordered rice and naan and it took two attempts to... More

This was our first visit to York and our first visit to Akbars.The first good point i noticed was the fresh rose petals placed on the tables which i thought was a nice touch.Poppadoms and pickle tray followed by chicken pakora and a chicken tikka starter were both amazing and very tasty. We couldn't believe our eyes when they brought... More

I had a lamb chop starter and lamb madras, pilau rice and a family garlic naan (to share with a friend) the naan was huge and so tasty, curry was a good heat (I like it spicy a few others thought their curry was on the hotter side) The staff were very friendly and I will definitely be coming again...

Visited yesterday for my boyfriend's birthday. The staff were friendly and welcoming and attentive throughout. The food was lovely, very flavoursome and good portion sizes also a fair price for the quality.

Yesterday I visited the York branch, I enjoyed the experience, the service was really good & the waiters were friendly and welcoming. The food was really nice and worth the price. Me and my friends were given a table on the side which was nice. I will be visiting the branch again.

Great place for authentic Indian food. Spicy and delicious with giant nan bread on holders. The food was delicious but be ready for spice. The Lamb, Chx and Prawns were all great dishes. If you're looking for Indian in York this is the place.

My partner and myself found this restaurant via trip advisor and have just enjoyed a well prepared, generous and fresh meal. Our server was Ali who not only was professional and polite but also took time to make us feel welcome by chatting and joking with us. We were not rushed and each member of staff we spoke to was...

I've been to an Akbars in Manchester and Braford (not sure if these places are linked) but the food and service here was just as good. If you're in york and looking for some good Indian food, then here is your place.
