“Lovely food, lovely staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

On a trip round england we popped in here for dinner on the recommendation of one of the locals we had met. The food was delicious and great value - The staff that were on, Sammy and Kai, were very welcoming & friendly which made for a really relaxed atmosphere.
If you do go, you really need to try the saag paneer, it's excellent.
We would definately go back next time we are passing down that way.

“We would go back if we were local!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

An excellent curry served up by friendly staff. My wife and I have at least a curry a week and Akash would be our favourite if we didn't live 300 miles away! Well worth a visit.

“A Long time favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

My friends and I have been visiting Akash for 18 years , we visit from time to time and if were in Blackpool to eat then it is here we visit, We have never been disappointed with the food. It is a good traditional Indian Restaurant a little back from the prom but the best we have found.
We do regularly visit other towns in the northwest and Akash Blackpool is the best, non of your contemporary fancy crockery that bumps the price sky high Just "Good Honest Indian Food" .
