“Authentic and Tasty”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Me and my Fiance where undecided which Indian restaurant to try in Blackpool, and took pot luck after reading some good reviews, and what a bonus it was. A bit dubious when we first arrived as no other customers where in the resaturant. We were greeted by friendly staff who immediately made us feel welcome. Sometimes you can have good service but mediocre food or vice versa. Akash deliver on both. From the very tasty starters to the main course all the food was delicious, fresh and as the title says authentic. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and even more of a bonus we got to use a 241 tastecard.

“Northern Curry House”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Ventured to the Akash on a wet and windy trip to the illuminations.

As previous reviewers have pointed out, this is a no frills old school type Indian but in my opinion all the better for it. Ignore the tatty decor and just revel in the quality food.

The service was great with nothing too much trouble and the bar prices are the cheapest I've come across in a long time. A bottle of house red was £8.00 and that is a rarity in a restaurant anywhere nowadays.

Our party of three emerged into the night full of fantastic food but also warmed by the hospitality and the large measures of free Brandy as it was also my birthday. Looking forward to visiting again.

“Do not be put off by how the place looks”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Please do venture upstairs and back in time (the place looks like an 80's club) as the food is really worth it.

I went with my mum and my husband, the food was some of the best I have ever eaten.

The food was served piping hot and there was plenty of it.

The quality was excellent.
