I have eaten in Akbars before a couple of years earlier on a works outing and enjoyed it so as I was staying in a hotel next to it on business I thought I'd give it another whirl! It's very plush and trendy inside and is clearly marketed as an upmarket Indian with prices to match!!! I was shown quickly... More

Great value Probably the best Indian buffet I have been to! Plenty of choices for kids too such as pizza chips etc Probably about 80% of diners were Indian which I always think is a good sign

I love this place. It always delivers great quality food and I always try something different as the menu is so different to your run of the mill curry houses. And the elephant ear naan breads are to die for.

Starters were great however our main courses were both tasteless. We brought it to the attention of the waiter who replied it must have been a change of the oils. Very poor overall and disappointing

So pleases we decided to visit this restaurant for our annual New Year meal with friends and family. The staff were so friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and they had no problem dealing with a large party. Can't wait to go back.

I have to say I've heard a lot of good things about Akbar recently and decided as a change we would spend our New Year's Eve trying akbars. To start I was a little disappointed by the drinks service at the bar, staff very inexperienced and a simple vodka and soda causing confusion. However with that aside the rest of... More
