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

We have been going back to Akbar's repeatedly over the last three months or so, always a very warm and friendly welcome and delicious tasty authentic Indian food. They even make dishes off the menu for us that we have requested. Can wholeheartedly recommend Akbar's for your next Indian food fix!

Really friendly spot on main road of Choeng Mon. It does double duty: the restaurant is happy to be your local curry-shop, serving up Anglo-American Indian food. Or, if you chat up the amiable owner, they'll put together some amazing, authentic Northern Indian food. Either way, you'll be happy.

My boyfriend and I visited twice during our 10 day stay in Choeng Mon! The food was exceptional and incredibly good value. I had a set menu both times and Raj kindly allowed me to have a prawn masala instead of chicken as I love prawn! He also adapted the sauce to make it slightly spicier. A must try is... More

We really enjoyed the food and hospitality in this nice little Indian restaurant so we even came back for another meal (and if it was up to my son we would have all meals in Ko Samui there). their traditional meals are excellent and the non Indian food is good as well. highly recommended!

We've been going to Akbar's for years now and just love what it has to offer. Great food and Raj is a fantastic host with the best smile in Choeng Mon. We love all of his food and he is really flexible with his specials. You can confidently order anything from the menu. Consistency is always what we want when... More

One of the best chicken currys I've had! I opted for the recommended Chicken Kadhri & my wife had the butter panner dish. Both really enjoyed our meals! All the food is cooked in the traditional way by Akbars talented wife. Highly recommend this place!!! Amazing food at a good price.
