A few steps below street level, this small restaurant is usually crowded and always filled with pungent aromas and the sounds of Indian music. Among the vegetarian dishes, alu gobi masala, a potato-and-cauliflower creation, is prepared with onions, tomatoes, and spices. Tandoori chicken is marinated in yogurt, herbs, and strong spices, then barbecued in a charcoal-fired clay oven. Akbar also makes a good choice for Sunday brunch.

This is a comforatble restaurant with great food. Usually the service is very quick. You can't go wrong with the breads, they're great... but don't fill up on them. Save room for Chicken Tikka Masala if you like mild flavorful food. You can request NOT spicey on any dish. The Meat Samosa appetizer i salso great. The best bet is to order a few things and share with your companion. King Fisher beer is a great treat with this food and soothes those who
are a little overheated. Go to Akbar.... you'll return again and again as I have whenever I am in Baltimore.

This is a great place for Indian food. Its down below sidewalk level and I have never had to wait for a table. Try the spicy chicken "Jehangiri". Then head up the road to the Brewer's Art for some strong Belgian beer.
