Wonderful aroma right when you walk in the door. Delicious food. It was great for a group of friends. Would definitely return.

We visited this Indian restaurant which is in Edison New Jersy. The restaurant is spacious and serves both veg and non veg. The food and service are both good and price is reasonable. There is a big parking space available outside the restaurant.

The restaurant has a good ambience. We ordered veg and non veg starters. Both were bad. But the main course (including a basic dal makhani, paneer dish) was worse. We ordered tequila shots, which seemed to have with diluted with water. Overall, never visiting again....More

Had a great time at Akbar specially treated by George; who's amazing manager. KingFisher beer is best and tandoori lamb chops you don't wanna miss it.
