We had to talk our way into getting a booth. Overpriced food that wasn’t worth it honestly. They include gratuity in the bill and expect you to pay more gratuity separately. Staff was rude and seemed like they wanted us gone ASAP. We’ve been here before and was never treated like this but will definitely not be coming back.

Indeed, I was not asked by the waiter what hotness I wanted for the food ordered. He disappeared once the food appeared on the table. They forgot to bring out the rice which came with the meal, and it took a while to get the waiter's attention to get it. He did bring it out promptly once alerted. The busgirl rather than the waiter was quite attentive and checked several times if we needed anything. I always thought that Akbar was one of the better Indian restaurants on LI but though it was good, I left thinking something was lacking.

We will definitely return. I did note, only AFTER adding my usual 25% tip, signing my credit card receipt and returning to my car, that the bill had already included an 18% gratuity. So they inadvertently got a really, really good tip just because I was in a hurry and hadn’t looked closely enough. It would be helpful and more honest of them to point that out a bit more clearly.

Parking was an issue. When we walked in at 545, restaurant was empty and quiet and service was prompt then 2 parties of 8 came in so became noisy, restaurant appeal was dated and chairs looked ready to be thrown out. otherwise, food was tasty, well seasoned, but every dish we ordered was too oily.plates were small and price was high. I would return once again to order and try different different dishes.

The food was hot, tasty and served on time. The waiter was friendly and helpful. My only complaint would be that the restaurant needs to be updated, decor a little tired. If they update it, it might even increase their clientele.

Authentic cuisine. We are vegetarian and had many choices. Started with the chili paneer. For mains we had dal makhani, malai kofta, sag paneer and baingan Bharta (eggplant). Loved it all. Took a bunch home. Ended with gulab jamin. We will be back.

It was Father’s Day so they had a buffet style dinner. Out of all the dishes only one of the appetizers tasted good. This is just sad. The dishes were very bland and the chicken tasted very chewy which is extremely odd. I know their a la carte menu and options are very tasty but the buffet was just a major let down. On special occasions like this where people are really looking forward to spending time and enjoying good food, you should stick to serving what people are expecting. My parents were really disappointed and I sadly won’t be coming back.

That, in itself, is a testament to how much we love it there. Food is delicious, service is great & the waiters/waitresses are very friendly. Our daughter loves it too.

The food was simply phenomenal. The rest of the experience was mediocre at best, but the food was so good that we'd be back in a heartbeat except we will likely never get back to the area. (Graduation, remember.) Problems with ambiance and service included a young boy from another family who was jumping around the restaurant, and the staff did nothing until I nearly walked out. Also, staff were generally inattentive once we'd placed our order.
