"Authentic North Indian Restaurant"
Primary Cuisine: North Indian
Restaurant Description
The Akbar restaurants are exceptional places to dine. Akbar's history began with Mr. A.N. Malhotra, the patriarch, who modeled his first restaurant after Emperor King Akbar; who was not only the most powerful Mogul emperor, but also a very hospitable host. Over the years, Akbar and Mr. Malhotra have acquired an enviable reputation internationally. The dinning room at Akbar in Edison is a hushed, tastefully palatial space, centered on a long rectangular fountain that feels something like an outdoor plaza. The austere ivory walls are embellished with artful moldings and stained glass inserts of historical and mythical scenes. The lighting is subdued. At the front, a windowed kitchen affords a view of the cooks and their busy clay ovens.
