We visited Akbar Dynasty as a large group of around 20-30 and they managed quite well. It's a small place just off the A66 coming from Darlington to Middlesbrough. The meals were all well received and everyone seemed pleased with their choices. I shared a set meal with one of my colleagues and we enjoyed it, although we discovered later... More

As ever, absolutely superb. The starters came on a sizzling platter and were delicious. The mains (especially the Lamb Matka) were brilliant. The staff are attentive without being intrusive, and always very welcoming. Best in town.

The food here is amazing, who would have thought that a converted diner on a main road could be so good, from the popadoms to the main course. The service is excellent from putting your coat on to opening the door, we always get a special welcome. Long may it stay

Being on the A66 may put some people off, but it really is worth the effort of driving to; and considering how busy the restaurant was on Saturday, it looks like a lot of people would agree with me! Every time we visit the Akbar, the staff are always friendly, and even though they are usually rushed off their feet,... More

It's just one of those places you can visit and know your stay will be right. The service is very good and the food is faultless. What more do I need to say......

For anyone who loves Indian food, Akbar Dynasty is well worth a visit! I had been recommended to go a while ago and wish we had visited sooner! I got a kebab to start made from mince and egg (I wouldn't get it again as it was almost a burger fried in egg), my fiancé got tandoori trout and our... More
