We have become regular visitors to Akbar Dynasty and have become accustomed to high levels of service and food, its best to book, but as we've found recently, they will try to accommodate if you haven't. This is by far the best in the area.

We went here last night and it was amazing!! Very nicely decorated and the toilets very clean. I would recommend booking a table as very busy and they don't take walk ins on a weekend also have a takeaway service. The chilli chicken paneer was out of this world and the lamb buna was very tasty with loads of meat... More

We visit Akbars most weeks and find the food excellent. Over the last few years we have never had a poor meal either sit in or take away. Consistently good food and service. Jaipuri chicken is great, hubby normally has a very hot Katmandu which he thoroughly enjoys. Well done to all at Akbars for maintaining the quality. Many thanks

For anyone wanting a review there really is no need. All you need to know is Akbar Dynasty is almost in the middle of nowhere (isolated on the A66) and is always packed full on a weekend. Basically, you know it's going to be good.

Friendly welcome and promptly seated but asked to share menus as they didn't have enough, about 5 minutes later, presumably when others had finished reading them more menus arrived. Having tried the majority of Indians in Teesside and nearby this place is up there with the best, coming only 2nd to Vadah in my opinion. The food was some of... More
