We had lunch at AKBar today and wow, everything was amazing! The owner greeted us with so much kindness and was an amazing host and showed so much pride in his restaurant and his food.
We had the vegetable samosa, followed by the butter chicken, chicken korma and garlic naan. We were blown away by the taste and flavors in every mouthful.

The owner shared how making his customers happy brings him so much joy and it was evident in our entire experience there. A meal we will never forget.

The only negative is that we didnt try the restaurant sooner :( definitely a must tru place if you are in Koh Samui!

We just ate there, and the owner is the sweetest.

They make delicious food and are eager to tell you about it. If you want indian food, you should definitely go there!

Definitely some of the best Indian cuisine we've ever had. This review is coming from an Indo Canadian gal and a dude who grew up in Surrey and knows a good butter chicken when he eats one. Very nice family run business with great people.

This hidden gem had a lovely aroma coming from the kitchen as we passed by one evening, so we returned for dinner the following night. Wow, we had the Chicken korma, chana saag, darka daal and pilau rice. Everything was delicious, yum, yum, yum. The owner and his daughter were so friendky and helpful. We loved the sauces that the owner mixed for us tp accompany their (complimentary) papadums. So good and such good value that we returned for dinner on our last night to round off an amazing holiday, highly recommended!

Ate here with the family based upon Tripadvisor reviews.
One of the best indian meals we have ever eaten. Dont expect a fancy restaurant - it is a typical thai place in terms of decor but the food was just standout good.
We ordered garlic nan, chicken pakora, chicken tikka masala and sag aloo.
Just really good food. Can recommend to anyone travelling in the choeng mon / bophut area.
