Dined here Saturday 02-05-15.Went for early evening meal just after Akash opened at 18:00. The quality of the food is fantastic. The service is unhurried and all staff are polite. The owner Sammy will take time to talk to you and with his photographic memory always remembers you! Don't mention Spurs or he'll never shut up! Search this restaurant out... More

I have been going to Akash for many years and I have eaten in many Indian Restaurants throughout the world and the minced lamb Keema curry in this Indian restaurant is the best I have ever had. It is hard to find but worth making the effort to find it upstair on Topping Street

I have been here numerous times and it is great! Food is excellent, they try very hard to please and the service is very friendly and attentive. What is not to like? There isn't a better Indian restaurant in the centre of town! Always prepared to be educated though?

A group of us went here after a night out at the Wedgewood Rooms. Myself and my partner ordered from the specials menu, ordering Curried Lamb Shank and Tandoori Chicken. They were both excellent, presented beautifully and tasted fresh. An excellent contemporary take on British curry house dishes. The others we were with weren't as adventurous and all ordered Kormas,... More

We booked the Akash because of its close proximity to the theatre and West St car park.It opens at 6pm. The restaurant is upstairs and could easily be missed.The decor etc is dated but the place is clean.The service is friendly and very good.The best thing about Akash, however, is the food. Very tasty, well cooked and hot. We would... More
