I've been coming to this place for years with my family and we have always had a good meal here. We've been to other Indian restaurants round here and have been let down. I like very hot curries like Phall and Naga so please try these dishes.

my friends took me to this restaurant for a party meal. The staff were very friendly and the food was great. I had a chicken tikka masala and i recommend other people to try it. It was tasty and the portion was a good size.

I have tried so many curry houses across the northwest, yet the Akash still stand out from the rest😊. The food is great I can't fault the taste. Definitely worth the try you won't be disappointed.

Having praised other resort curry houses for upping their game this one was not up to my expectations. No issues though.

We ate here during our stay to Blackpool this month after looking up curry houses online in Blackpool (as we can never go away and not have a curry!) I picked this curry house as I'd looked at the menu and it SEEMED (emphasis on seemed) cheaper - we are used to paying London prices as this is where we're... More

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
