Great food. Service was good and staff were friendly. Went early Saturday evening and restaurant was not very busy so atmosphere was quiet. Would go back again.
Food was good but service was slow even though restaurant not overly busy. Some things on menu not in stock and then we were overcharged on bill and had to get it corrected. Spoilt the evening somewhat.
Food absolutely fabulous. The service was very good. The wine really lovely and at a reasonable price. I think that Sher Akhbar is the best curry house and I've been to most of them. I took two friends with me who'd never been before and they too were well impressed.

Regardless, you can expect supreme Indian and South Asian specialties like the unique chicken salsa, created by Sher Akbar’s award-winning chefs, to be a popular choice along Manchester Road.

The balti qandhari cooks chicken breast with mushroom, fresh tomato, and spinach in a spiced and herbed curry sauce. Finally, the jhinga bhoona balances king prawns with onion, tomatoes, ginger, lime juice and spices in a zesty, signature dish.
