Great food, can't fault the service. The naan bread is huge but delicious, good size portions of food, wouldn't go for a light lunch you need to be hungry. They only take bookings on tables with over 8 people which means there might be a...More

Eating alone, as I often do on business, I had the chicken Balti. Ask for "Asian style" if you like it spicy. It was simple, with a salad and one of their signature huge naan. It is as good as anywhere I have been in...More

We have been visiting Akbars in Middlesbrough for years now and always visit with our family. The food is always great and the staff are always friendly and genuinely happy to see you return time and time again.

We've been here a number of times but the last few times have been disappointing. The meals are over salted and not as tasty. If you are wanting a romantic setting be aware that the restaurant area is large and can be very noisy. Carrying...More

Hi I would like to book at table on Sat 17th August at Middlesbrough for 4 people at 20:00hrs. But I understand you do not take bookings for less than 8 people. As one of our party is in a wheelchair we really would like a bit extra room at the table please. I don't want to just turn up and find that you cannot accommodate us. Is there any chance I can reserve a table please? thankyou
