We must, of course, come clean right at the outset, Helensburgh wouldn't be on our normal rota of destinations for dinner, not that it isn't a perfectly nice place, it 's just a mere 120 mile round trip from where we live! The reason we made the journey recently, and picked up three of our friends on the way, is that the new proprietors of Akash used to feed us in our local town, every Sunday night, and we miss their wonderful food terribly. Nowhere else in Scotland comes even close to producing tastes and textures like these and we've tried dozens of places. Our recent meal brought it all back, all five of us were treated like princes by Rashid and his brothers and staff, and the food was, as usual, magnificent. The Akash is situated, upstairs, on Sinclair street, and is a really comfortable and relaxing space in which to eat, with a cosy little bar area and seating on two levels.
On this evidence, the Akash deserves great success and to build up a loyal clientele as it's reputation grows, it is just such a shame it isn't on our doorstep any more!
One little tip, when you go, ask if there's a 'staff curry' and get them to tell you about 'homestyle', you'll not regret it, guaranteed!
