The feed is so much more than what you'd expect. The lamp chops are just fantastic. Great atmosphere too. Also good value for money. The drinks/cocktails are just average but that's fine.

Came here on a Saturday night after several recommendations. The good. Food is excellent. Starters and mains didn't disappoint. Probably one of the nicest meals I've had in a while. Nice decor. Funky booths. Then not so good. Clearly a popular place so there are queues. We had to wait an hour or so. You get given a buzzer and... More

If you arrive after 7pm expect to wait 30-45 minutes (still worth the wait though) . You can't write about Akbar's without mentioning that gigantic garlic nan! Verry big and yummy. I go eat there every trip to Manchester (3-4 times a year). It has always been a wonderful experience. However, I've always over served myself to the point of... More

We booked a table at this venue. The food was cooked beautifully and the staff where extremely pleasent and friendly. The only downfall was there where 6 of us and we where squeezed onto a tiny round table so no room for the food we ordered. Would recommend though. The food was amazing

We have been coming here for years. The food and service was always fantastic until the wonderful manager passed away. Since the change of circumstances, the place went slowly down hill until eventually it became awful so thought we might not come back. We had since heard good things again about the place so decided to give it a whirl.... More

This was our third visit in the past two months and once again we were not dissapointed. A very busy restaurant tucked away at the bottom of Manchester city centre in Liverpool Street. As always the food was excellent, great choice, fantastic flavours and great service from the waiters and kitchen staff (waiters take your order and once cooked the... More

Akbar's has a nice atmosphere/interior, and a good selection of curries. Although let downs include some unfriendly rude staff. The lady at the entrance handing out pagers did not offer a warm welcome and was rather abrupt and impolite, which was not the most pleasant start to the evening. Once our pager had buzzed, the gentleman seating us denied that... More

I was part of a group of 10. We booked accordingly, turned up on time and the host gave our table away to another party. No recompense has been made to us, and i am frankly shocked at the level of ineptitude on display, although i shouldnt be given what ive heard about the chain in the past. I will... More

Poor quality food and service. It was like cattle being herded to graze. The cutlery was filthy! Even after giving them feedback they appeared nonchalant. Never again!
