I'm not local but last year after a night at the Darts we asked a taxi driver to take is for a curry and as I remember it we all enjoyed it even if a little intoxicated Again we are up for the Darts but went the following evening and it was still very enjoyable. They accommodated well with joyful... More

During our UK hols....... We visited The Akash restaurant after reading reviews on TA, and wanting a restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. We had just had a hectic family day at the Pleasure beach and decided to go about 6pm. As a number of the reviews stated, the decor isn't really up to much, but the friendly staff... More

Ate here last night (2/7/16). The food and service were excellent. What I would advise is a bit of a facelift in the restaurant guys and certainly new menus, they are very tired with ripped plastic wallets and damaged, stained pages. Other than that a fantastic meal.

We dined here on recommendation by an Indian friend and were not disappointed.Staff are very friendly and attentive. We both had a biryani, chicken and a lamb which came with a vegetable curry. Portions are large and very tasty. Will come again next time in Blackpool. Oh and the prices are very reasonable.

We have been dining at the Akash for over 25 years although it must be 2 years since our last visit. I was treated to a fantastic meal by my daughter for Fathers Day and my immediate thought was "why have we not been for so long?". The food was as fantastic as it always has been. The host, Hassan...

I went there for an early evening meal - I didn't need much, a starter and something else The "something else" was a chicken byriani - and believe me, it was very tasty, one of the best I've ever had! Because it was early, and rather quiet, I got to meet the gentleman that cooked it, not something that happens... More
