Been going to Akash for at least ten years (as live away) but we thoroughly enjoyed our visit in December. Great traditional curry house with friendly staff also waiter Kai and really good food. Sauces are distinctly different in each dish and tasty. Always benchmark my dish by Lamb Dopiaza but our whole group had a range of different main... More

A friendly welcome, and a nice enough brightly lit room, we had a bottle of house red claret, which was decent enough and not too pricey. Poppadums were ok, with plenty of dips and my mixed meat starter was very good.. Onto the mains then.. My wife's paneer Jal frezie was ok, and my Chicken Vindaloo was very spicy, however,... More

The restaurant is a bit dated but were welcomed by the staff and the food was cooked to order ,when it arrived it was lovely and nothing was too much trouble very good place and probably one of the nicest curries we have had ,so if you visit look beyond the decor and enjoy what youve gone for FOOD

I never used the toilet but my friend who did said they were dirty. The food was very mediocre and nothing special, I've had better out of a... More

We recently visited with some friends through recommendation but if the owner hadn't been at the door when we arrived we probably wouldn't have gone in! The decor was very dated the toilets were grubby... More
