The Edison establishment is centered around a long rectangular fountain. Our prices are reasonable and the management stresses on impeccable service. The menu includes north Indian starters like vegetable pakoras, papdi chaat, garlic shrimp or paneer pakora. Entrees include the very popular tandoor mixed grill, Kashmiri rogan josh and, of course, the assortment of breads. The mughlai fare is authentic and developed from the original recipes. The kitchen kings include Harpal Singh, Karan Singh, Rehman, Sambaji, Kulkarni, Pushkar and Lamba, some of whom are graduates of Culinary College and therefore bring with them the highest professional credentials. Certain dishes like chicken malai kabab, prawn kabab masala were introduced by Akbar for the first time in New York. Only we can claim 20 years of pleasing both Indian and American palates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The food was quite delicious overall and the atmosphere was delightful. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff remembered (even though it had been just a brief mention during a phone call earlier in the day) and brought out a scrumptious slice of chocolate mousse cake with a candle for the birthday girl and plates/forks for us to share without even being asked. Lastly, manager personally assisted us with an issue that arose which we appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The attentive service along with the food was outstanding. The tandoori lamb chops were well seasoned and cooked to perfection. The murg Labadar was tender and like the translation like butter. The Biryani rice was fluffy and allowed for the sauce of the murg labadar to be layered on the nan for that perfect compliment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Food can be prepared with more care, cocktails seem to cut corners. There are more onions in Bhindi masala than bhindi. Usually Bhinidi is garnished with onions. But at Akbar onions are garnished with Bhindi. This happens every time. We pointed many times. When we ask for spicy, the food is not spicy enough. We just go to Akbar for ambience and the owners hospitality. Some staff are very polite and professional.
