Went with a big group of people for 18th Birthday party on Boxing Day. Our visit this time will be remembered for poor service and plate of popodums going over my head. Although I understand Boxing Day to be one of the busiest days of the year, the experience felt rushed and they seem keen to cram the party onto... More

Decided to go for a meal on mad Friday (for some strange reason)place was full of works parties who shall we say appeared 'testing' on the staff. The service was fantastic, food came in good time and was excellent. Never been to this restaurant previously as being newish to the area, but would certainly return in a hurry! Highly recommended

We've been coming here for years and never had a bad experience. Over that time we've tried other Indian restaurants in Darwen but we always come back to the Akash. The food is always excellent and the service friendly.

Had the buffet there which is changed every week, a set menu with 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 bread type products. Brought to your table by your waiter , you can replenish as much as you want, we came away really full. The staff were very helpful and as I am a coeliac and cannot tolerate gluten, they brought...

The food and atmosphere was absolutely fantastic. Our only problem being how staff stood at the top end of the restaurant having a chat while we ate, minor detail really.

Went here as a group and left feeling rather underwhelmed. I had the mixed grill which was poor - the very limited amount of meat was tepid served on a cold plate ( as opposed to the usual sizzling platter you normally get in other places) and my tandoori chicken leg stringy. I ordered a side portion of vindaloo sauce... More
