Do not book herw

Terrible we booked in advance for a table for 8 as a special occasion for york races. we arrived and were told no tables were left at all as it was york racers even though we booked a week before. We have been to this restaurant chain in numerous places and have never been let down and as disappointment as we were at york very bad!!!! Do not go!!!

highly recommended

This place is a must to try in york , great food and atmosphere , does get busy so plan times carefully, only bad points are currys can be a little oily at times and you can feel rushed by the waiters during busy periods

Always reliably good. Clean and pleasant. food excellent and very fresh, service quick and 'on the ball' though not pushy.

Akbar's gets very, very busy on a Saturday night. We had a booking, and were left waiting around for half an hour before we were even shown to our table. The resturant itself was very dark, and very loud. We found it quite difficult to chat to each other, and resorted to almost shouting in the end. This also meant that it wasn't easy to tell the waiters what we wanted - it was very difficult for one of my friends to explain that she had a nut allergy and wanted the nuts removed from her dish, for example.

Once the food arrived, it was delicious. I highly recommend the family nan bread - it comes on it's own stand, and was very tasty. I had a mushroom and paneer balti, which was lovely. The sauce was quite spicy and was hotter than I would normally eat, but it was balanced out by the creamy paneer.

I would go back, but not on a Friday or Saturday night.
