Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Do you still not take bookings for large parties on Saturday nights? My husband and friends are taking part in an event at Granada studios (Manchester) on 10th June, for his 40th birthday, and we were hoping to eat at Akbars afterward (approx 9pm) there will be approx 20 of us.
