Nice venue, friendly staff but disappointing food. It seemed to lack flavour and heat. The ridiculously large nans were hard and flavourless and way too large. It seems that the main aim of the staff is to offer as many drinks as possible before taking...More

We have visited this restaurant on the recommendation of friends local to the area and it is always a pleasant dining experience. Great novelty hanging naans and good choice of options for both meat eaters and vegetarians

Visited for a mid week curry with a customer and work colleague – pretty good value curries – I opted for the chicken Kharai and boiled rice. Unfortunately being coeliac I couldn't take advantage of the massive naan breads on offer :(

I go regularly and always have the Lamb Bhuna, no rice and their amazing Nan Bread. Highly recommended.

Absolutely nom nom nom! We hadn't been to Akbars for a while as a couple of years ago it could be hit or miss, however our visit tonight couldn't have been more enjoyable. My husband and I ordered a different Balti dish each, rice, naan...More

a little too open plan and can be noisy , service was good, quality of food was satisfactory but not oustanding, also expected more choice on the menu.

Baffled as to why people gave less than 5 star, I love my curry and have had curry all over the country and across the world. I guess if you go on a busy Friday or Saturday night it may be very busy and service...More

Hi I would like to book at table on Sat 17th August at Middlesbrough for 4 people at 20:00hrs. But I understand you do not take bookings for less than 8 people. As one of our party is in a wheelchair we really would like a bit extra room at the table please. I don't want to just turn up and find that you cannot accommodate us. Is there any chance I can reserve a table please? thankyou
