Review - Akbar The Great Indian Restaurant

Fatin Fauzi

Highly recommended. Very beautiful restaurant with delicious Indian and Thai food and very good services provided to the customers ... very friendly and kind owner and all the staff working there ... really happy being there with my family ... been there in November 2018 and back again in April this year for the delicious food and services.


Just returned home from a lovely meal at Akbar the Great in Darlington. Booked a table of 8, 7 arrived with one coming a bit later, not a problem for the 2 gentlemen staff. Ordered drinks and mains and when our late arrival came she ordered and all of the delicious food was brought out together.

Very rare do I finish an Indian meal but I devoured my Delhi Korahi, rice and naan bread.

No complaints from around the table, quite unusual for us that lol.

Tip, Top place cannot wait to go back, loved it, thank you.

Akbar the Great, you were Fantastic.

Been for the first time today, lovely host and amazing food! Even got some complementary dishes! Definitely coming back.


We have been to this restaurant and really enjoyed the food. Owner Mohamed was really helpful and kind. We took murgh pakora (chicken), panch mishali (mixed platter) & chicken chat masala as starters. Then shathkora bagmothpur lamb tikka, rogan josh lamb tikka, chicken korma & lamb tikka masala for mains. Rice & nan bread too. Everything was delicious. This restaurant is not to be missed. Thanks Mohamed.


We are back in the area on business and back here again .always the highlight of us being in the area. Food and service fantastic as always and never fails to be a good night. Would recommend to anyone to come here. Just wish I lived local myself.

What a beautiful night I had with my family in Akbar The Great. We have Thai and Indian food... I had delicious Thai seabass with rice and my husband had chicken madras with mushroom rice... The food is absolutely excellent... The service is perfect and the staff was so friendly... We meet the owner of the restaurant Uncle Mohamed and her sister aunty Mel they were very kind and very generous... We'll definitely come back... I recommend it to everyone.
