I have previously reviewed Akash and back then I had little or nothing in any way negative to say; indeed it has been our Indian restaurant of choice for many years now, including an occasional take away when we feel idle and want to nosh in front of the goggle box. The food has always been superb and the staff friendly and attentive. The value for money too has always been excellent.
But lately their standards appear to have been slipping, and rather too quickly for my liking.
We have recently had two take-aways and also eaten in twice, telling ourselves that the falling standards we were finding in the food quality must be transitory, however four negatives in rapid succession have left us wondering if Akash have changed their chef. The staff appear to be the same friendly, pleasant crew so I don't think it is a case of new ownership, though of course anything is possible.
Whatever the reason we won't be going back for a while, as we are fervently hoping that Akash weathers the storm and arises like the proverbial phoenix from the ashes of their recent slump into mediocrity.
