Akbar Restaurant Review

: Like fraternal twins, the two Akbars share the same menu, but have their own personalities. The downtown location, with its below-street-level entrance, is cozy and intimate, with soothingly low lighting and attentive service. Like its sibling, it offers better-than-average Northern Indian fare. You can't go wrong with standards like roghan josh or paneer, the house-made cheese, in a thick tomato curry spiked with cilantro. Try the chicken chaat roused with mango powder and tamarind sauce for a refreshing cold starter and absolutely end with the kulfi falooda, an iced dessert of sweetened milk infused with ground pistachios and a hint of rosewater. The daily lunch buffet is fresh and bountiful, and a good value.
