To all the people who left this place a bad review have never been to an authentic indian takeaway/restaurant. The food is 100% perfected. Chicken tikka with every bite in the curry. Chicken tikka phal is amazing, vindaloo is stunning. Please give this a try if you enjoy Indian food, I’ll never go anywhere else , I drive 1.30 hours to get a meal from here and worth it !!

I have been to Akbars in Manchester (near MUSI) many times. However, this was my first visit to the one in Toon (near Holiday Inn in Grainger Town).
Whilst as busy as the one in Manchester, we were seated straight away, rather than having to wait at the bar.
The interior is very spacious and much better than in Manchester, with floor to ceiling windows.
As you'd expect, the menu is exactly the same.
The onion bhaji and kebabs are great for starters (not forgetting the lamb chops!).
Good choice of mains but be aware some dishes are described as 'meat' rather than specific beef, lamb etc. If you're feeling adventurous you can have camel.
Always remember to order your nann bread on its stand!
