We have been visiting Akbars in Middlesbrough for years now and always visit with our family. The food is always great and the staff are always friendly and genuinely happy to see you return time and time again.

We've been here a number of times but the last few times have been disappointing. The meals are over salted and not as tasty. If you are wanting a romantic setting be aware that the restaurant area is large and can be very noisy. Carrying a conversation is sometimes chaotic, we've had to speak very loudly. Not much fun for... More

I have eaten in Akbar Glasgow on numerous occasions, so I knew the quality and variety on offer. I was not disappointed. We were served by an extremely pleasant and knowledgable waiter called Morshed, he explained several dishes and we opted for the Chefs special Baltic and lamb chops.

I used to go to the original restaurant in Bradford, when they used to put rose petals on the tables! The lamb chops were amazing. Downside is that the curry is all shipped over from Bradford and to be fair, if you want heated up curry you'd be better off popping to Asda Southbank and getting a Mumtaz microwave curry... More

Have been a few times before and I know everyone raves about akbars but I must admit I can not get over excited. I feel the good is mediocre I have had much nicer Indians elsewhere I liked the novelty of the family naan breads but don't think they are as nice as others I've had. Overall I would return... More

The food was quite nice but it is also so noisy , the tables are a bit to close together and there is also always a few parties in. Worth a visit
