The prices are not expensive so we thought it should be OK but expected that such a good indian would have expensive prices. Not at all. The... read more

We were in Blackpool as my husband had work to do there for a couple of hours. After a long drive from East Anglia and a lot of shopping by me we were ready to for a nice meal. Having used trip advisor to find other great dining venues we did this again and thought the Akash sounded good. We... More

We visited here on the day we arrived at Blackpool. We love Indian food and so researched trip advisor. We would not have found this restaurant if it hadn't been for this site as it is in the back streets and upstairs and so only a door to the restaurant. Food was very good and service was efficient and the... More

On visiting Blackpool to support an old shipmate who had recently lost his wife we came upon the AKASH. We both had the Meeta Ghosh with all the trimmings and thoroughly enjoyed the authentic Indian food and the attendant excellent service and atmosphere which helped a great deal in alleviating what could have been an overly sad occasion.

We went for my brothers 40th birthday all the staff were friendly and welcoming all of us enjoyed our meal. We have regularly used this restaurant for the last 4 years. I recommend lamb Achar if you like lamb you should definitely give this dish a try.

Had a great Biriyani meal in a great restaurant with a warm and friendly reception , ideal for those Blackpool visits and in a central location not far from the nightlife to follow , highly recommended.

I ordered two takeaway meals from this Restaurant and they were delicious. The portions were very good, the food hot and tasty and the waiting time for a home delivery was acceptable. I have eaten both in and out of this Restaurant and on each occassion I was pleasantly surprised.

Read previous reviews on trip advisor and whilst in Blackpool thought we check it out. Coming from Bradford my curry expectations are quite high. The location is unassuming and small. Stairs to reach the restaurant which is on the 2nd floor. Warm greeting from staff when we arrived about 10pm. Manager spoke to us about his experiences in Bradford which... More
