We regularly visit family in Coventry and always go to Akbars for the best Indian food. The attention to details and friendliness of the staff is second to none. We can't wait to visit again in a couple of weeks.

Great curry house not far from Coventry city centre. Service very good and attentive. Food was tasty, served at the same time for a party of 13 and hot in temperature. Good value for money. Free parking at the Ramada opposite too.

This is a great curry house with fresh, and tasty food. Reasonably priced with large portions. The place is spotless, even the toilets are unbelievably clean. I loved it well worth going to and picking off the large menu.
