Coming from the curry capital of the east midlands(Leicester) We found the Akash on TA Not high in the ratings but that said it is very good value for money, good size portions, helpful staff team, food quality reflective to price ratio. Decor..you are not there for that but it does require an uplift to make the experience more enjoyable.... More

We happened to be in Blackpool for a long weekend and were staying around the corner from here. The Tripadvisor reviews were pretty good and we also had a Hi-Life card and a quick browse on their website said that this card was accepted at weekends, so this was the deal clincher.
