The delicate cuisine and elegant ambiance found at Akbar restaurants can be traced back to the 16th century in Northern India - specifically to a Mogul Emperor of the same name who had a flair for dining in unique surroundings.
Today, thanks to his culinary expertise and over 40 years as a talented restaurateur, Mr. Malhotra has succeeded in spanning the ages. With authentic recipes prepared by centuries-old methods and chefs imported from Bombay, he has made it possible for modern day gourmets to enjoy specialties which were virtually unheard of in the U.S. until the late 1970's.
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.
