Akbar, with genuine Indian character and charm, is aptly named after the Grand Mogul Emperor famous for splendor of his hospitality, fabulous feasts and elegance of living. As the first Indian Restaurant in Long Island, Akbar has lived up to its name, providing unparalleled services to its guests for years. Inspired by the diverse tastes and flavors from India, each chef at Akbar not only brings years of culinary expertise to each dish, but also has his own specialty, creating a unique balance in each menu item. An elegant setting with dramatic high ceilings, plush carpeting, Indian carvings, and the romantic glow of candle light add to the memorable and unique dining experience.

Its 3rd time visiting here with friends and family. Waiters are always in rush even cant take order properly. Never come to ask for any other order always have to look for someone.
The atmosphere is so good and comfortable. Not a lots of choice for food but food test is perfect. Will recommended to friends.

Visited during restaurant week. They feed you like a king. Small plates but big portions. Cozy place. Will return.

We were a party of 10. Would of appreciated the heads up that they auto service charge on larger parties. I was able to reverse the second larger tip on the tip.

Disappointed. Restaurant seemed more interested in proving buffet than restaurant week menu. Menu very limited and a poor choice that did not highlight the cuisine well. The food presented was "boring", which is not what I would normally call Indian cuisine. Service was slow, food: eh!

We were very much looking forward to an enjoyable dinner at Akbar especially since we hadn’t been there for quite some time. There was a private party going on while we were there and that may’ve been the reason why our dinner wasn’t so terrific.
We were given a lovely table and enjoyed the ambiance very much but unfortunately we couldn’t say the same about the meal.
The chicken tikka Masala was horrible- and the small scoop of tasteless rice and salad dished out on this circular metal serving piece was not appealing. The onion kulcha was ok and the tandoori chicken was just ok. The waiter never came over to ask how everything was. The best part was the mango lassi. Sorry but not impressed and won’t be going back.

A waste of time and money. This place hardly matches what you can get any Indian restaurant on LI for the price.
