Have enjoyed carry out meals from the Akash since it reopened and the quality and quantity has always been excellent. Fast friendly service too.

The Akash was very quiet not sure if that was a good or bad thing. I had a Madras, I like spicy food but this Madras was almost overwhelming. I managed it though. My girlfriend had a Chasni she finished it all so must of been nice. We ordered a peshwari nan and the thing was massive. The meals were... More

The food was very good, service was quick and the price was reasonable. This place isn't the easiest to find unless you know where it is and their business may well be suffering from a newly opened Indian restaurant round the corner. I have been to the Akash a few times in the past and the food has always been... More

We got a take away from here the other night,set meal for 4 for £40.I thought this was a good price,Indian take aways are normally quite expensive esp in Helensburgh. I can say the food was average,felt like the chicken had been cooked separate from the sauce so the chicken tasted very bland, also ordered the lamb and mint yogurt,which... More

My husband is from Helensburgh. We routinely eat here and take my mother-in-law. Food is of a very high standard and proof is from the recent win from The Scottish Curry Awards. My husband knows his stuff and he rates the food as excellent- no nuclear red blended sauces here. We shared a mixed starter and poppa dons which was... More

We've been to The Akash a few times and never been disappointed. Last night the meal surpassed all expectations. We had a chef's platter starter to share and my husband had a chicken Murchi Madras and I had a Chicken Tikka. We shared an "elephant's ear" naan bread and a portion of rice. The sauces were fresh, rich and tasty,... More
