Best Indian I have had for years and great service. Food was melt in the mouth . Staff were very nice . The price was reasonable and a bottle of wine only £9. I will be back there next time I visit Blackpool

I've been going to the Akash for over 22 years now and it never fails to deliver. I take the family, friends and business associates and always have a splendid meal. Sammy and the staff are always helpful, courteous and enthusiastic about having us in for an evening. Highly recommend the Akash..the best restaurant in the area.

Akash has very friendly, welcoming staff. The food was lovely and very reasonably priced as you get a big portion! In the centre of Blackpool and worth visiting if you like Indian food.

Nothing special. Waiter intrusive. Would not return . Toilets nasty. Price OK for c what it was and no pressure to buy alcohol.

Before he could a man in a white shirt began to berate him for doing so and shouting about the busyness... More

Extensive and well priced menu. Great food. Friendly staff with good service. Ate here in a group of 10 on a Thursday evening in early September. Could not fault anything.

Popped in here as we had a discount card on a quiet Sunday evening. Not quite what we expected. The draught Cobra was as flat as a poppadom and had to be sent back. The bottle is a far safer option. Wine was fine [named brand]. Food ordered and arrived surprisingly swiftly, but before any plates, which were cold.. Tarka... More
