I go to the Akash for all my Indian Meals. The staff are all lovely and the service is really fast. The Curry is always spot on and the price is very good. The location and external appearance do not help the place, but you should ignore this and go an enjoy a great curry.

We visited this restaurant last year and as we were in Blackpool again this year decided to go again as the food and service are excellent. Well I'm pleased to say nothing has changed, superb food and great service, I would recommend this restaurant if you like Indian food.

Visited here recently with the Mrs, 2 kids and the in-laws. I had a lamb dish which was absolutely sublime!, the Mrs and in-laws also extremely enjoyed their dishes. Reasonable prices, friendly environment and top notch food. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Blackpool. Superb!

We were on family related trip and staying in Blackpool, and this is a must for Indian food lovers and novices alike, a great Blackpool experience. Sami the owner is warm and welcoming. The best in all respects!
