Their Chilean Sea Bass is the best fish I have ever had. They cook it in their Tandoori oven which somehow transforms this fish into the lightest, almost melt in your mouth texture. The flavour is great and it is served on a hotplate with grilled onions. Have it with their Chicken Tikka Masala, or Lamb Sag.

Although it's a 30-minute drive for us, we come here quite frequently. The dishes are always freshly and expertly prepared. We have tried a lot of Indian restaurants in the area and elsewhere, but this is one of the very best. My wife was born in India, and knows good and authentic Indian preparation when it appears.

I really enjoy this restaurant. Good Indian food at affordable prices. Can't be beat since I live near by. Really enjoy it every time, and not too crowded

I am not sure what kind of restaurant this is. Is this a non-indian (mexican?) place masquerading as an Indian one? or is this just a very poor quality Indian restaurant?? The reason I mention Mexican is I saw Mexicans in the kitchen cooking; the food quality, the presentation, etc. was not Indian authentic. We had a couple of dishes... More

This place was empty when we arrived with only customers at three other tables the entire time we were there. But the menu had a number of options that sounded good and the waiter was very good at recommending the meals. He also was very receptive to how hot and spicy you enjoyed food. I also enjoyed that you could... More

Akbar sits unassumingly in Hermosa Beach and is not overly busy. But it is EXCELLENT! We were a group of 7, and no one was disappointed. Of note were the Chicken Tikka, the Chicken Tikka Masala, the okra, and the saag paneer. We will go back much more frequently!

We went here with a Groupon and were greeted immediately. Our meal came and was perfectly cooked, even the request for less salt and less oil. Very delicious.

The food is consistently good. I highly recommend the chicken tikka masala. The favor is outstanding the sauce leaves you wanting for more. Granted the vegetables may not seem fresh, but it is the only negative. They are not bad, but the other items of the definitely overshadow them. I truly recommend an order of samosa to start your meal.... More

I am a regular Indian cuisine diner. When visiting the area I was excited to find this restaurant. However, it is a best middle of the road as far as Indian places go. I ordered Chicken Tikka, which was quite good. However, the vegetables looked like they came from a supermarket prepackaged mixed vegetable bag and had just some spices... More
