The Star.com's Food Review: "Akbar’s sparkling performance"
Here are some Quotes from the article:
"Inside Akbar’s, the Indian restaurant that draws curry fans from far and wide to the less fashionable side of Tinsley Viaduct, there’s a cracking little display going on too."
"What was a big, tired old pub on Meadowbank Road became an exotic Eastern palace five years ago and it’s always busy"
"The atmosphere has a lot to do with it. Dark and stylish, under a twinkling ceiling, objects gathered from throughout the East – intricate wooden carvings, giant silvered candle holders, statues of Indian gods – draw the eye hither and thither"
"Karahi Fish and Potato, £9.95, promised white fish with crushed onions, tomatoes, baby potatoes and peppers in a special mix of delicate spices cooked to a secret family recipe. A subtly flavoured, aromatic dish with a hint of lemon, the potatoes were by no means baby; they had fallen into the sauce, as had the flaked fish, but the result was a beautifully textured winner"
