Not able to make reservations for parties of less than 10 so expect a long wait at times. This can be off-putting especially if you have children in your group. The restaurant is very large and busy and rather noisy, the background music just makes...More

Just great quality food, quick and friendly service, quite busy but you can see why it's so popular. Always have a great time at Akbars and the Manchester branch is no different . Looking forward to my next visit.

As always top quality food in a lovely enviroment. The only small problem is the queue, as the restauraunt is very popular you can't book unless for a table of 10 this can result in a 40 min queue on a saturday evening.

Great atmosphere. Great food. Love the fake chef hats that the waiters wear when serving your food. Or are they actually the chefs? Best value for money Indian I have come across. Shame wifey does not like Indian, so have to trawl for fellow curry...More
