Decided to go for Indian food for lunch. Akbar has $12 lunch specials. You get to pick butter chicken, lamb, beef or paneer (vegetarian). It also comes with lentils, chick peas, salad, basmati rice and naan. You get a lot of variety and it's very tasty. If you can't finish your lunch special, the restaurant does not pack it to...

We had a dinner for two deal which had starters that were lovely and the rice and naan that accompanied the main meal were also nice. But two out... More

This is our go-to Indian restaurant in our hood. We have dinner here a couple times a month and it is consistently delicious. When we're tired and don't feel like cooking, we ask: Should we go out? And where? Akbar's Own is the answer. My fav is the eggplant bharta.

We were not planning to go for lunch- then we read the menu at Akbar's and decided to have lunch. The lunch specials had lots of choice and the lamb tika won out. Nice atmosphere and great service. This is a great place to go and we will give it a try for supper as well.

We went to celebrate a birthday with 6 family members. I had eaten here once before a while ago and had forgotten how clean and tasty the food was! Service was excellent, many great food options and very good portions. We actually ordered more than we could eat and it made for a great lunch the next day! Wine list... More

The restaurant and washrooms were well maintained and decorated in a South east Asian motif. The service was great as was the wide variety of menu items.

6 of us went for dinner on a Friday night with a reservation. Not busy seated promptly. Good service, acceptable menu choices and reasonably priced wine. Ordered 6 main dishes plus two orders of Pakora appetizers (lots and tasty) and two orders of naam, one garlic and one spinach and cheese. The spinach and cheese was the preferred choice. Mains...

We have eaten at this North Indian restaurant a few times, and the food has always been delicious and the service friendly and efficient. Our latest visit, on July 9, was no exception. There were four of us, so we were able to enjoy a few dishes, including the vegetable samosas, garlic naan, a lovely fish curry, and a couple... More

Haven't had the chance to dine in, but on several occasions have had some take out. Butter chicken, really good...both chicken and veg pakoras really tasty...but my favorite so far is the calamari...an amazing experience, battered in an Indian spiced flour and deep fried. Really good. Looking forward to dine in.

Neighbourhood Profile
South Granville
The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic collection of entertainment, from theatres and cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and map out, all while taking in the hectic atmosphere of people coming and going, while others look for the best ways to spend their last few hours in the city.
