They must off had new owners take over here. We have been a couple times in the past. However this time ordered a takeaway for collection. None of the old staff there. Got home the food was bland, tasteless and just edible. Never again !!

Used to be great here but good quality has fallen sharply. They also seem to have removed 100s of past reviews from this site or somehow reset their entry which doesn't bode well (including some good ones I left when it was a favourite of mine)

since curry mile has hardly any restaurants these days we go here quite regularly early on a saturday evening when it tends to be on the quiet side though there are quite a few takeaway callers - we've always found the food ok and service satisfactory - plenty of free street parking - good location for a meal prior to...

I was a little nervous about going to this restaurant because of the previous reviews. However, we went and had a great time. My food was lovely, very tasty and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent they staff really looked after us. We are already planning our next visit!

What do you expect from a curry house that does karaoke all Friday night? The curry was average. Looked and tasted like curry but lacked any of that classic curry magic. I'd expect this quality of curry in an all you can eat buffet... or a restaurant where the main focus isn't curry at all but getting plastered and booming... More

We decided our kids were old enough to share a mild curry and we knew they loved naan bread. Early tea on Friday night to start the weekend...and of course we ordered too much! Nice lunch next day for me too (saag aloo, makhani and naan) 😉 we'd not realised it was karaoke night too so son and husband had... More

Well the food now is horrible I'm sorry but it's like microwave meals just loads of tomato sauce but no veg no chunks of onions tomatoes peppers, no nothing ! Just sauce urgh. Aside the poppadoms and naan it was a major... More

I went to Sher Akbar with my family to enjoy a New Years meal. We'd eaten here a while ago and the food was lovely. We were greeted by friendly staff and lovely service, unfortunately the food was not good at all. My mum and I both had the tikka masala which tasted more like spicy tomato soup than a... More

This is more of an advisory note than a bad review. Went for food with friends on my recommendation, because it has always been very tasty in the past. While the food was still very good, the service was pretty useless all round - it took 30 minutes for the waiter to take our order - and this was despite... More

As organiser of the evening I didnt hear anyone of the other 9 people say it was a good meal. A tired looking pickle tray was the first sign of things to come. No complaints for the 3 starters or any of the naans or drinks! The chicken tikka makhani recommended over the butter chicken was like chicken tikka with... More
