The Staff at Akbar Restaurant - Garden City, New York
Akbar's history began with Mr. A.N. Malhotra who designed his first eatery after the spectacular palace of the grand Mogul Emperor Akbar. Emperor Akbar lavished his guests with his kindnes and enormous hospitality. n Manhattan in 1976, after acquiring a knowledge of Indian Cuisine and a history of working in the hospitality industry, Mr. Malhotra and his son, Pradeep Malhotra established Akbar restaurant in New York City. The authentic Indian Cuisine and elegant ambiance at Akbar restaurants is traced back to the 16th century in Northern India, when royal Indian Mogul Akbar was known for his flamboyant dining in unusual surroundings.
Thanks to his culinary expertise and over forty years in the restaurant business, Mr. Malhotra and his successors have succeeded in continuing to serve his patrons with authentic recipes prepared by centuries-old methods and chefs imported from the palaces of Bombay. Akbar Indian Cuisine has made it possible for modern day gourmets to enjoy specialties which were virtually unheard of in America until the late 1970's.Akbar now has branches in Garden City, NY and Edison, NJ. The Garden City branch of Akbar is managed by Mr. Malhotra's daughter, Ms. Meena Chopra who was gracious to my crew and I as we spent a truly wonderful evening dining on the most magnicent Indian food.
