“Good food in old-style Indian”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Last night wasn't my first visit to this restaurant but was somehow the best.

The chicken tikka jhalfrezi didn't have much "tikka" about it but it was piping hot with great fresh-tasting spices and a good, solid chillie kick to it which is to my taste.

Popadoms where fresh and crispy but the chutney tray featured only onion chutney and mango chutney. There was no lime pickle or yoghurt. The onion chutney is very good indeed with a subtle mix of onion, cucumber and fresh mint.

I ordered a draft Cobra beer which if I'm honest didn't taste like Cobra. I didn't question it though.

When the bill arrived it was written like a Doctor's note- totally illegible. I do like to go through my bill to make sure all is correct but this wasn't possible with a totally unreadable bill.

One waiter who I assume is the one all the reviewers name here as Sammy is friendly and personable.The other has a less friendly demeanour and looks like he's just opened his phone bill.

With one or two gripes this was a pleasant visit. Good Indian restaurants in central Blackpool are thin on the ground and this place is as good as it gets.

“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.
