Great food and service. Polite staff and a nice atmosphere. Even good for a take away but can take a little longer for food and takeaway at busy times.

Food was amazing. Fast service in a busy restaurant, the naans are as big as duvets and all fresh. Try some of the Apna things (our thing). The sheeps brains (maghaz) is a real treat. The waiter asked us how hot we wanted the dishes so it was almost tailor made. Will definitely return.

Our first visit, and we will definitely return. Curry's were lovely, tasty and great value for money. Staff are fantastic, on hand and have everything organised. The portions are just enough, with excellent presentation. I had Korma and it was delicious. We was offered a lovely, free birthday desert which was a nice touch. This place is busy.. shows how...

Consistently good food. Sat up stairs for the first time, waiters were very friendly and helpful. The only thing stopping being 5 stars is the prices seem to have crept up quite a bit recently, especially the drinks. Still favourite curry though.

Bar on left as you enter whilst waiting to be seated. We eventually sat upstairs. Great decoration. Organised waiter efficiently took our drinks, starters then main choices. Food tasty and plentiful. Too full... More

go often - best curry house in Rotherham/Sheffield area. Chicken Tikks Makhani is just lovely - huge family Naan's - staff always wonderful and you get rose petals on your table.

Starters and main meals were all hot. Well presented by... More

I went to Akbars for a meal with my siblings and my parents for Mother's Day. As per usual they were very busy on the evening but it's always definitely worth the wait. As always food was great staff were polite and the overall atmosphere was very welcoming. One of my favourite places to eat from, would recommend it to... More
