I highly recommend the Akbar restaurant in Columbia. Good food, reasonable prices and a very gracious wait staff. A very relaxing atmosphere to dine in. The buffet for lunch is very good. Dinners are wonderful, too.

We are not familiar with Indian cuisine so we can't offer an expert opinion of Akbar's food but we enjoyed our food. We chose non-spicy items but for those who prefer spicier food, that was also available on the menu. We had the Mulligatawny Soup...More
