2 for 1 at Akbar Indian Restaurant

Whilst there may be plenty of Indian restaurants in Kingston Upon Thames, The Akbar specialises in dishes from all regions of the great sub-continent.

The emphasis is on modern cooking and fresh seasonal produce wherever possible and from the clay oven, that most evocative of ancient cooking rigs comes Tandoori salmon, fish chunks marinated with minty yoghurt, roasted mustard seeds, coriander leaves and fresh lime all brought together in the tandoor. A chicken, the staple of domestic cooking everywhere, has cuts of breast and leg of spring chicken marinated with natural yoghurt and ground spices then cooked very slowly in the tandoor as the natural juices blend together to give magnificent flavours.

Main courses of chicken introduce a tikka masala approach or the murg-e-jalfrezi, supreme chicken cooked with green chillies, tomatoes and bay leaf, the sort of Indian dish that gives a challenge to the wine list for something robust yet cooling.

But despite all these it is the well known favourites that continue to hold the centre ground. A straightforward curry of chicken, lamb or prawn will forever be popular, even if a balti appeals more to the younger generations.

Akbar Indian Restaurant is a must visit restaurant for lovers of Indian dining in the area of Kingston upon Thames.
