The best food & service

We have been to the akash several times now and cannot fault it one bit. The food is delicious and tasty. The service is quick and excellent. Everytime we have visited we are made to feel very welcome and we look forward to visiting again soon.

The wife and I fancied an Indian but we didn't know where to go so we asked a taxi driver and he took us here and we are very grateful he did because the food was superb. We walked in it looks a bit run down but nothing that a lick of paint couldn't fix. The staff were very friendly... More

Speedy service, friendly, chatty staff, and we were all impressed with our meals, from a vegetarian curry to tandoori mixed grill. Would definitely visit again if travel to Blackpool.

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
