No-fuss Indian food seems to do the trick when it comes to pleasing the masses, but Akbar does much more with its Mughal (North Indian) cuisine. Specialty dishes include Barra Akbari (skewered lamb marinated with yogurt and spices and grilled over charcoal fire). And don't fret about the apparent absence of curry on the menu at first glance -- a closer look reveals the Murg Curry Shahajani, a chicken dish from the time of the Shah Jahan, the emperor who built the Taj Mahal, or perhaps the Murg Goblwala with cauliflower. Samosas also make an appearance, as does the omnipresent lunch buffet. Thankfully, the Mughal food (otherwise know as royal cuisine) doesn't come with a hefty price tag. Plus, the BYOB policy doesn't hurt.
