About Akbar The Great

For those who don’t know, Akbar The Great was once one of the, erm, greatest Mughal Emperors to ever rule in India. He was good at a lot of things and he also loved curry. Did he love curry as much as the UK does now? Well, probably not, but Akbar The Great restaurant in the heart of Darlington still honours his name. This wonderful restaurant on Bondgate embraces all of the influences that have gone into Indian food over the years, but the kitchen here definitely focuses on those unique to North India. As such, you’ll find curry house favourites as well as plenty of Akbar signatures. Akbar The Great Darlington is without question one of the most popular Indian restaurants in the area so a reservation is certainly wise.
