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!
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.
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.
The food is excellent! I’ve been here many times and will definitely return again.
Excellent Indian cuisine in buffet. Perfect for Sunday brunch’s.
Consistently excellent.....food and service, a true neighborhood gem!
We had an amazing time! Fantastic service, delicious food, exactly what I had hoped for. Wonderful experience!
Our family has been dining at Akbar for nearly 30 years-it was where we celebrated graduation from kindergarten for my now grown sons. Food as great as ever, the best palak paneer I've ever had, and of course, our kid's favorite: wonderful Chicken Tikka Masala. Gracious wait staff. Great leftovers, too!
Fantastic, heartfelt food. Great location. Can’t recommend enough.
Akbar was one of our favorite restaurants when we lived in Baltimore and it didn't disappoint. It was good to see familiar faces and items on the menu. We love the cozy atmosphere and delicious food.
A great restaurant for delicious and authentic Indian food.
Akbar has always been one of my favorite restaurants and my visit on Valentine’s Day was extra special. The food was perfectly spiced (I ordered the chicken sagwala medium) and the portion was hearty. My date enjoyed his chicken tikka. Service was very attentive as always. I really love the ambiance of Akbar. It’s a smaller restaurant and with the brickwork and candles on every table it is very cozy. For Valentine’s Day they presented me with a rose at the end of the meal which was a lovely touch. I hope to return soon to enjoy more delicious food!
Best Indian food I have had in Baltimore. Great service and ambiance. Have to walk downstairs to get in so not accessible
This is some of the best authentic Indian food I have had in a very long time. I have never been to Akbar before. We went for the lunch buffet and it was amazing. We will be back again very soon.
Food was excellent and served in a timely fashion. The service was acceptable but somehow indifferent.
Beautiful room, quiet, excellent food. Wide variety of choices on menu. They also seem to do a great take-out business.
This was my first visit, and I was impressed with the spice level of the Shrimp Vindaloo I had ordered. Service was efficient, and I was engaged in a serious conversation with my dining partner. However, the evening took three hours, and I had the sense that the waiter had forgotten us.
I took my vegan son to this restaurant for Thanksgiving. It was lovely. The people were attentive and helpful and the food was great. White tablecloths and nice decor lent a festive atmosphere. Many Vegan choices. What's not to love?
The food was quite good. Service was very attentive. Would recommend. .
