Had a great time at Akbar specially treated by George; who's amazing manager. KingFisher beer is best and tandoori lamb chops you don't wanna miss it.

Good welcome & initial response. But there are greedy people in their management so you need to be careful about whom you deal with for a party. We had organised a party at Akbar & some of the experience was pretty bad. They tried to charge us for service we never requested. They subcontracted some service for us without us... More

While parking our vehicle at the spacious parking lot, this cute, but elegant Indian restaurant built up in Indian architectural style is quite impressive from out side, it self. On entering, the interior decor reminds one of those usual Mughlai Indian Restaurants seen in North Indian cities. Furniture, fixtures, fittings and all those wonderful paintings are befitting to such an... More

The owner and staff were excellent. They could not have done more to provide an excellent dinner. Owner picked out a tastey selection of Indian food including various appetizers, chicken and lamb and bread. It is a large place with several banquet rooms a a good sized dining room.

I was visiting Edison with my family from Harrisburg PA and was hoping to have some good Indian food for dinner and chose Akbar, which was my biggest mistake. We ordered malai kofta, palak paneer and chicken kohlapuri. The palak paneer and kofta did not have any taste, seemed like there was no spices or salt and was totally bland.... More

Large facility with at least 3 separate rooms. If you like Indian food this will be right up your alley. We found the food to be very good and this was my wife's first experience with Indian cuisine. The staff was pleasant, friendly and attentive. The décor was very pleasant and although there were different parties going on you would... More

If we lived closer, Akbar would become our regular go-to special occasion restaurant. Superb buffet lunch today included: "chaat" (chickpeas/crunchy wafers/yogurt/sauces all self-mixed in small bowl) as starter, made-to-order "dosa" (rice pancake) and "aloo" (tasty yellow mashed potato) as a side. The main course buffet options included special rice, delicious thin noodles (NOT ramen!!), goat meat curry, paneer (Indian cheese)... More

Akbars Restaurant is a highly recommended place for my friends and family or anyone looking for tantalizing delicious cuisine, to visit when in Coventry. The service is awesome and the atmosphere buzzing. You must visit this Grand Restaurant whenever you are in Coventry, the staff were warm towards us and really welcoming. We really enjoyed every minute there, a must... More
