The selection on the lunch buffet is quite minimal. Food is not as good as other Indian restaurants. The selections were lukewarm. Service did make up for the lousy food.

We enjoyed food and service. Taste was authentic Indian, spicy and aromatic indicates good ingredients used. Enjoyed

We arrived and it was very busy with a wedding in one room and a full dining room. The host was very polite and we only had a short wait.
The food is always head and shoulders above any other Indian cuisine in the NYC metro area. The servings are plentiful and even the mango lassi are better than anyplace else. Well worth the trip for us!

If you ever needed proof that decency and courtesy are out of style, you should have been in Akbar on Saturday, 10/14/17. We went in for a peaceful lunch and found chaos all around. A family had decided to hold a private party in the restaurant instead of hiring a private room, and they were standing around, taking photographs with flashes, greeting and talking loudly, even yelling "surprise!" A stroller was parked near the table with a baby in it. All this at the table right in front of the buffet, which made it difficult to navigate with your plate balanced as you waited for them to move apart so you could get through. Meanwhile, another table at the back had kids running around, yelling and behaving like it was a play ground. The adults at the table saw nothing wrong in that. I was impressed by the waiters who managed to patiently slip in and out, serving us water etc. the food was okay, the service good, the atmosphere horrible, and the management needs to make sure all diners are happy and not just a few.

The best Indian food that I have eaten on Long Island. Wife had vegetarian Thali and I had meat Thali. Sunday dinner buffet is wonderful. Popular location for weddings.
