We had a group of six. The restaurant was quiet and we could here the conversation around the table. The food was great.
There were four of us sharing four dishes, all of which were good or very good. Service was friendly and prompt.
Hidden gem! Staff wonderful. Food delicious. Very cool place to bring out of towners, show them how charming Baltimore is!
Great food, attentive and kind staff, we had a lovely time!!
We love this restaurant. The owners as well as the staff are welcoming and attentive, trying earnestly to make the experience enjoyable. The food is as good as any Indian restaurant in town.
Service was wonderful and so was the food! Will definitely be back.
Akbar is one of our favorite go to places downtown....consistently great food, great service, great atmosphere! I love their variety and many vegetarian choices too. We have been going there for delicious food for years...and plan to continue for years to come!
We continue to eat at Akbar year after year after year.......the food and service are consistently excellent; the ambiance is low key and we are able to have a conversation; and it always feel calm and comfortable and 100% reliables! Thank you Akbar!
What an amazing experience! Great food, incredible service, and fair prices. Will absolutely be back anytime I’m in town.
Food is always terrific. Easy location meet up with friends.
We always enjoy delicious food and great service. We highly recommend Akbar
Great dinner. The service was fast, the restaurant was quiet and the food was outstanding.
Owner-run, very personalized service...cozy...above average Indian fare with a large menu.
Akbar is our go-to Indian restaurant. Never fails to delight!
A great little spot located to so much in the Baltimore area. Easily walkable from the BSO's Meyerhoff Hall and various other attractions. Owners are wonderful, service is great, food is beyond amazing. Check it out!
Absolutely amazing food. Loved it.
Enjoyed our dinner before our show at Center Stage, a short distance away.
Delicious food and quick service! The chicken tikka masala is creamy and you can choose level of spiciness. will come back again
Akbar is my favorite Indian restaurant in the Baltimore area.
The food and service were amazing. We felt like we were treated like family. The owner even greeted us and made sure everything was going well.
Food was amazing. Flavors were great, and everything was cooked just right. We had the Tandoori Salmon, Pishori Pasanda, and Chicken Xacutti; the server was careful to check in with us about the spice level, and it was lovely. We had several appetizers as well, and our party was negotiating over who got what, because everything was just so good.
The food was yummy as usual. And the service impeccable. These helped to make an outstanding evening.
Great service and tasty food! Definitely coming back!
The food was delightful, and the service was outstanding. It was very welcoming, peaceful, and an enjoyable experience. I definitely plan to return to try more tasty items on the menu!
seems like the overall past excellent experience has declined. food not as tasty as in past. has a tired feel to it. other newer Indian restaurant near Loyola much better food and ambience.
The best Indian food in Baltimore
Our dinner at Akbar was delicious, gracious, delightful....consistent as always! A pleasure!
We have been coming here for five years as a couple. We went on our first date here and continue going on our anniversary. The food is delicious and very affordable.
It is shady restaurant, begin with the front door to restroom, in basement. To me foods are horrible, if you are Asian Indian, i am sure you will find that too, although pallet differ person to person. At least I tried all the foods but my friend even bother to try after first 4 foods. This is the worst restaurant I ever been.
Friendly staff, great food, affordable prices
It has a cozy, intimate setting and the food was amazing. When we got the bill we were surprised how cheap it was. That never happens!
Good food and comfortable setting. I would recommend to a friend or family member. This is our second timing going and both experiences were pleasant.
I arrived late for my reservation--got lost in traffic--and indicated I was attending the concert at the Meyerhof. The staff graciously prepared my meal quickly enough that I actually ended up having time for dessert.
We enjoyed a delicious meal and outstanding service. The wait staff was completely accommodating. 🌈
Great place to get together with larger groups! The food is fantastic!
I’ve been coming to Akbar for authentic Indian cuisine for almost 20 years now. I always get the same thing (Chicken Tekka Masala, garlic naan bread and veggie simosas for my appetizer) and I must say, this last experience was even better than I remembered! They outdid themselves with their Tekka Masala sauce; to the point where I was still stuffing my face long after I was already full. Keep up the amazing work coming out of your kitchen, Akbar! You never disappoint!
Excellent service and authentic Indian cuisine. I ordered the Punjabi Kadhi and it reminded me of home cooking. Can’t wait to go back!
Authentic Indian cuisine,done right.And they are very accurate at tailoring the spice level to the diner’s preference.
Awesome food. Good Service (always with a smile). Quiet atmosphere. Lamb Vindaloo and Shrimp Vindaloo were spicy but really tasty. The Chicken Tikka Masala was also quite good. I have been coming here for years, on and off, and it never has disappointed.
Outstanding Indian food in a lovely, quiet setting. Great for romance or semi formal events.
