More about Sher Akbar, Manchester

Sher Akbar go out of their way to inform their guests about their special, featured dishes. The selection is likely to change up regularly, as the expert chefs at this Chorlton restaurant flex their muscles and culinary curiosity. 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. This dish is something of an Indian fusion item, combining chicken with a Mexican tang as well as the finest Indian herbs and spices. Other specials include the veg platter, laden with grilled skewers of colourful, flavourful vegetables. 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.

The Manchester area of Chorlton is blessed with a number of great restaurants, most of them clustered along Manchester Road. Supreme among the South Asian options is Sher Akbar, whose popularity has won them numerous awards. Besides offering a menu packed with Indian delicacies – lamb chops from the tandoor oven, delicious okra dishes – Sher Akbar’s stylish premises are known for hosting fantastic private events. The restaurant can be hired out in part or in full for unforgettable parties and Indian banquets, whether you’re looking to entertain guests for a work party, a birthday, a special anniversary or a wedding.

The food is superb and the prices are quite reasonable. We found the service to be excellent - the waiters were very attentive and friendly without being fussy. The restaurant is not massively atmospheric, but that doesn't really matter if you're with good company. Although the drinks selection could be better, there's a huge range of food to choose from and, having sampled several dishes, I believe it is of consistently high quality.

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.

Food was fabulous as usual and we had a party of eight. I just love it at Sher Akhbar! ! The only problem was with my daughter who had a Tastecard loaded on her phone and the staff were not familiar with this procedure. Otherwise great!!!

Under new management within the last two weeks meant no facility to pay by any other way except cash - trip to nearby ATM inconvenience, limited dessert menu, no decaf coffee or hot chocolate available though offered on menu, mix up with naan bread order means we will probably not re-visit within the foreseeable future. Staff were pleasant and apologetic but some of these issues should be sorted before offering a full service.

We had a very nice evening. The food was good. The staff were friendly. It was a little lacking in atmosphere, since it was a Tuesday evening, but the big windows are nice, and we were happy amongst ourselves, so that didn't matter. It's a good restaurant.

Food was gorgeous when it eventually arrived waited over an hour & a half after poppadoms for our food. Drink service was just shocking Such a shame as food was so nice but evening was let down by the overall service.
