My wife’s brother was in town for a blitz visit, and we had to decide what to do for dinner. We ended up settling for Indian take out, and ordered from one of our favourites: Akbar’s Own (1905 West Broadway @ Cypress).
When we first arrived in Kits, one of my wife’s colleagues recommended Akbar’s Own and we are still grateful to him. We used to go there somewhat regularly, but haven’t been in a while. They are not necessarily a toddler/baby kind of place, they don’t deliver, and take-out waits can be a little long at times. But if you are in the mood for some great Indian food that is a step above some of the run-of-the-mill stuff, you should definitely consider Akbar’s Own.
They have most of the classic dishes, and all the ones we have tasted over time have been great. We especially like some of their specialty rices, as well as their fantastic breads. Try the vegetable pratha, an incredibly tasty whole wheat bread, stuffed with potato, onion, carrot, and green pea.
