Akbar Edison Review: Disgustingly Bad Food; Humans Must Avoid

Even by the pitiful standards of most New Jersey Indian restaurants, Akbar sets a new low watermark.

If we had our way, the owner and kitchen-staff of Akbar Edison (off RT-1 in the Holiday Inn hotel complex) would be hauled up for savage, beastly crimes against humanity and sentenced to life without parole.

Folks, what we were served at Akbar was most definitely NOT Indian cuisine, not even a pale simulacrum of it.

How this disgustingly trashy wannabe Indian restaurant continues to remain in business is as much a marvel as the growth of the Tea Party and the sight of the White poor and middle class supporting a Republican Party that is determined to eviscerate them.

What Drew Us to Akbar Edison

Some 10+ years ago, we used to frequent Akbar in Garden City, Long Island and relished the food there. When we learned that the Akbar Edison outpost was the sister restaurant of one of our old favorites, we hastened to make Edison our port of call.

Alas, Akbar Edison turned out to be an absolute disgrace. So unlike the Akbar Long Island of our decade-old memories.

By the way, Akbar Edison is managed by Pradeep Malhotra and his wife Meenakshi while Akbar Garden City is run by Meena Chopra (Pradeep's sister).

Akbar Edison - Godawful Food

Much of what we dipped our beaks into at Akbar Edison was a hideous nightmare we wouldn't wish on our Paki and Chinese enemies.

Horror of horrors, we found Murgh Vindaloo (supposed to be a spicy treat) completely bereft of any chillies. Straight out of Ripley's Believe It or Not, it was a tasteless piece of crap.

Tandoori Chicken was a hard, rubbery, semi-burnt mess completely unworthy of any kitchen with an atom of shame.

With its slightly burnt flavor, even the humble Dal Makhni was not immune from the depredations of the bozos in Akbar's kitchen.

Guys, if a chef can't turn out a palatable Dal Makhni he/she ought to be exiled from an Indian kitchen forever.

How hard can it be to make edible Dal Makhni, eh. Like how hard is it to make an omelette.

One of the few comforts of our miserable meal was the Naan Bread. Soft and buttery, it was a delight. But our second batch of Naans were badly burned at the bottom. What a shame!

If you think the dilettantes at Akbar wreak their atrocities only on meat-lovers, you'd be so mistaken.

Vegetarians are equally at the receiving end of the fiends in Akbar's kitchen.

Spinach Softa with Cottage Cheese was a bland, tasteless mess and amounted to a declaration of war by the restaurant's kitchen against the hapless diners.

Paneer Tikka Masala tasted like it came straight out of an MTR heat-and-eat packet while Mirch Ka Salan in a coconut-flavored creamy gravy was bitter.

Yeah, bitter like our dining experience at this horribly bad Indian restaurant.

Lousy Desserts

Phirni, a fairly common Indian pudding, was an utter travesty since it was low on sugar and had a very raw taste.

Ditto with the fruit custard vis-a-vis low sugar. Plus the fruit custard wasn't even cold.

Akbar Edison Rating - Stay Away, Far Away

Folks, starve to death if you must but steer clear of this hopelessly pathetic wannabe India restaurant Akbar Edison (NJ).

If like us you are a passionate lover of Indian cuisine and happen to be in the Edison area, we suggest you consider Coriander or Abhiruchi and for vegetarian food head to Jhupdi, Swagat or Dosa Grill.

Clueless buffoons, the Akbar Edison are remorseless purveyors of misery and a visit to this restaurant is a complete waste of your time and money.

Blaming our karma for leading us to this trashy restaurant and with despair in our heart, we wearily trudged out of Akbar Edison silently heaping curses on the shanis (devils) for ruining our meal.

We strongly recommend all humans avoid this worthless impostor of Indian cuisine aka Akbar Edison. - ©
