“Bank Holiday Weekend Buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Visited the Akash on Easter Sunday. Arrived just in time for the buffet, in fact by the time we were seated it was past the buffet end time, but we were still able to order it. The restaurant was as usual very busy, full in fact, and we had about a 15 minute wait. When the food came it was a starter of mixed kebab, three main dishes of a korma, balti and a bhuna, Bombay potatoes, 2 x pilau rice, chips and 2 naan breads, between four of us, and we were all full by the time it was polished off! We do visit the restaurant regularly and have never really had a bad meal there. Would recommend, and will visit again.

“Great service.”

The service was very good and waiters showed interest. The food was delicious and very tasteful. You'll see me there again and I'd definitely recommend it.

“Had to check it out - was not disappointed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

I had a wonderful meal here on a wet Wednesday evening in March. The atmosphere was vibrant, but not too busy. The service was friendly and helpful, and food was well prepared and presented. This is a deceptively large place, and from its exterior, doesn't stand out from its local competitors, but I can certainly say from my visit that the food and service were very good. I was not disappointed!

“Best Curry House in Darwen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

I've lived in Darwen for 8 years now and sampled nearly all of the many curry houses in this town. Recently I revisited Akash and started to realise that if is head a shoulders better than the others. Prices are good and comparable, buts it's the food that is knockout. Service is good too

“Never disappoints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

Spur of the moment decision to go for curry on a busy Saturday night. Brief wait for a table but service like clockwork. As usual we ordered far too much but left overs all packed up for supper on Sunday.
