"A good restaurant, went there after a really bad experience with Junnon on new years eve. I guess its better to be at restaurant during off peak hours if you want satisfactory service."

"Food was good and portions generous. The mulligatawny soup was watery and bland. The saag dish which I ordered medium spicy was somewhat oily and not spicy enough. Everything else was very good."

"It was four of us in our party. Everybody loved their food. Two people ordered the tikka masala chicken, it was flavorful and the chicken was tender and delicious. My niece (she's vegetarian ) got a cauliflower entree that she loved. I can't eat spicy food, so I got the chicken biryani, and it was absolutely delicious . We got garlic nan for the table, also great. They also accommodated our request for a booth , even though we had to change the time of our reservation at the last minute. There were a few large tables while we were there but the noise in the restaurant didn't keep us from having a good time and enjoy each other's company. Highly recommend it!"

"Akbar makes the most delicious sauces which make Indian food taste so delicious. Their use of curry and other spices is superb. If you like spicy, try the lamb vindaloo - meat is so tender! Only thing is that they have a buffet and it is busy so waiters on tables that order off the menu get a little "lost" at times - all in all, the best Indian in my opinion in Nassau!"

"The appetizer platter was dry and greasy. The chicken tikka masala was good but the saag gosht was not nearly up to par. The pilau was very "american" with peas and carrots on top. The staff were attentive and helpful, so I can't fault the service. In an area covered with Indian restaurants, we will seek other pastures in the future."

"I think Akbar is best known for its ambiance and location more than anything else. The service wasn't very good; the wait staff are more interested in serving white people than anyone else probably thinking they will be tipped better. For the amount of money our bill came out to we should have gotten way more food. The food itself didn't exactly taste like five star quality but it wasn't bad (the naan was particularly tasty). I had my wedding here last year and I had no complaints about the food, the room, etc. then. I probably would recommend this only for a special occasion but not just for your typical weekend, night out dining experience. I would however strongly recommend booking one of the party rooms for a wedding, engagement party, etc."

"Nice place. The food is excellent. The ambiance and service is decent. A little pricey for the dining experience you get."

"We were craving Indian food, but recently moved here and haven't established our list of "favorites" yet. Found Akbar through an online search and decided to try it. My friend and I enjoyed a glass of wine, an appetizer some naan and 2 amazing curry dishes, all for $65.00! The food was so aromatic, creamy and yummy... we wanted to go back the next day for more! My friend and I were enjoying an evening away from the kids so we ate and chatted for 3 hours, without ever feeling like we were rushed or hurried. The restaurant was beautiful inside and we had a very enjoyable dining experience. I can't wait to go back!"
