We were staying in Blackpool for an overnight family getaway on Monday night. Our hosts recommended the Akash as the best Indian to go to for reasonably priced food...and they were certainly right. The service was very good - obliging, attentive and friendly. There were 8 of us, but the meals arrived in rapid succession. The food was also of... More

Pretty much the title of this review, really: Authentic, delicious food, great value. It was all of those. Restaurant decor is a bit shabby, which doesn't matter a jot to me if the food is good. Which it really is. Restaurant was heaving with an entertaining and slightly bizarre mix of Punks (there for Rebellion Punk Music festival, held in... More

The best curry we've had in a long while! We have great curry houses in our town, but this has more than matched them! Don't be put off by the exterior as the food is excellent . Well done!!!

My mother in law came to visit from the Midlands and loves indian food so we decided to give the Akash a try and wasn't disappointed it was fantastic, there was six of us altogether all having a different dish and every one was cooked beautifully and full of flavour. The staff were very friendly and obliging and at the... More

We had a great meal. 2 veggies and 2 meat eaters and all satisfied. Good level of spicing on all dishes. Only downside was wait for main meal - but it was incredibly busy. Definitely be returning.

We recently visited this restaurant during a break in Blackpool based on trip advisor ratings. We were impressed by the service and friendliness of the staff and speed at which the food was served. However, we ordered 2 totally different curries which to be frank tasted and looked very similar to one another. They were average to good to be... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant on the 30th of July 2016, we were incredibly disappointed by how extremely rude the bar staff were on arrival! We felt that we couldn't walk out so stayed to see if anything would improve but unfortunately not!! The food was ok but not brilliant! The restaurant needed cleaned as I noticed half... More

We were served by several different people throughout the meal, all of which were polite and friendly although there was one gentleman who tried to give me a glass of water from another table when they...
