Excellent meal, had two very good courses. Over all it was good value, the wine in particular is very good ,well priced. Service friendly and relaxed not rushed out.
Excellent very nice abc friendly staff reasonably proved we got starters Mainz and desserts and drinks and there was a big grip of us the staff were very friendly
Fabulous as ever. Food great - service great. Would highly recommend. Best Curry House in Manchester. Can't wait to go again. Great night out as ever
It was a great day, we all had a great time, the staff and the atmosphere was spot on. Will be recommending it to all our friends
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.
