THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Akbar Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED Akbar offers well-prepared Indian food at reasonable prices in a comfortable contemporary setting. The tandoor produces not only the usual chicken, kebabs and puffy breads, but also such specialties as Chilean sea bass. Chefs make the chutneys---coconut, cilantro and pickled vegetable---fresh daily. Curries include a pepper-lamb hinting of saffron and prawns with a delicate accent of coconut. There are vegetarian choices, too. Mango cheesecake is one of the refreshing desserts. In addition to the requisite Indian beers, there's a wine bar-lounge with its own menu and varying selection of by-the-glass and bottle options. If you've never tried wine with Indian food, it's time to take the plunge. Other locations.
