I tried Garlic Nan-a-Tandoori Bread, Vegetable Samosa, and Vegetable Biryani (rice, vegetables, nuts, and raisins). The food was well prepare and authentic. The wait staff service was very good. The pricing was reasonable.

I went on a Sunday night it was not busy so I was able to ask my multitude of questions. I ordered the veggie appetizers - they were fantastic the cheese was soft and samosa was crunchy! I pondered on what to order for dinner and they recommended the veggie ball korma this is probably my new favorite Indian dish... More

I go to Cincinnati for a week almost every year to do AP grading (you know, those tests high schoolers take for college credit). Yep. Actual people grade those. Anyway, during that week we mostly eat the catered food at the Duke Energy Center. But one night they give us a $25 allowance to eat anywhere and there is no... More

I knew straight away by the stale smell and empty restaurant that this was not going to be a memorable experience. We ordered chicken tikka for starter and received chicken breast in some kind of wet sauce that was utterly tasteless. Then the main course, the lamb was very tender and I ordered strength 4 hotness, but it was simply... More

Akash is perfect for those Downtown take-out dinner nights! Great menu, friendly staff and delicious food. You can park beside the restaurant to grab your food and go.

I visited the Akash Indian restaurant in Cincy on Labor Day when many of the restaurants were closed. This is one of the few places that was open in the Fountain Square area. The place was almost empty about 7.30pm when I arrived - one other gentleman eating; but there were several take-out orders while I was dining. I ordered... More

I eat here about once per year in early June. I love Indian food and so am always looking for such restaurants when I travel. I'm always surprised by how few people are dining at Akash when I go. We are seated right away, and the service is excellent without being overwhelming. The food is quite good -- not the... More

We went with colleagues. Although some reviews were good the place is just average. The service is friendly,nice family run business, prices are very reasonable. The portions are very large. I could not even finish half of my biryani. It is wise to split portions. My biryany was not up to my expectations. Samosa was also nothing special. My grade... More

We went for the lunch buffet and were very impressed with the overall selection and ambiance. Not one item that we sampled was off flavor or not fresh. If you are going to order an Indian beer such as Taj Mahal, be aware that they come in 1 liter bottles. The server actually reminded us rather than letting us over... More

This large restaurant downtown owns only 2 high chairs, which were both occupied when we arrived on Saturday night. The owner told me that he has been there 15 years and never had a problem with this! The service was very slow. Additionally, the portions were pretty small--tons of sauce and only a few chunks of meat. Overall a disappointment.
