My brother, father in law and myself went to Akash last night after a family day out in York.

The decor is typical of most Indian restaurants but the staff and food were both excellent. Upon arrival we were very warmly greeted, the restaurant was very quiet though which we found a bit strange as it was 10pm on a Sunday evening.

My father in law had the chicken biryani, my brother the chicken chilli massala and I had the lamb sag and we all agreed the food was delicious.

The bill for three main courses, popadoms with pickles, two soft drinks and one pint of lager was £37.00, which was reasonable, got to say that the most disappointing thing was that the restaurant had no set meal special on a Sunday evening, which the majority of Indian restaurants we eat do. Maybe this is this restaurant was so quiet on a Sunday evening?

All in all some lovely food, great staff, ideally located 1 minute walk from the Micklegate Travelodge where we were staying, would definitely go back, especially so if they put on a Sunday night five course special.

Very friendly staff, a very good choice on the menu at very good prices. The food was excellent and under £17 for 3 courses and a drink.

Found this lovely restaurant as it was close to our hotel. Small but very welcoming with great choice of dishes and well priced. Waiters friendly and attentive but not overpowering. Food was great and nice to have a different choice of spicy dishes rather than the usual. Not posh but that's not what you look for in a curry house!!!!

Found this little place on our first night in York, having walked round most of the town trying to decide where to go, we chose here! We were seated quickly and easily. Its quite a small place, but very cosy, was a good atmosphere and two larger groups in. Service was friendly and food was lovely. Just right, for what we wanted. Would return again if in the area.

Akash accommodated 18 of us on Valentines night when other restaurants were holding out for couples.
The staff couldn't have been more attentive.
They were really well organised.
The food was lovely and considering our number was served remarkably quickly.
Great value for money.
The restaurant is quite small but this only added to the atmosphere, which was warm and exceptionally friendly.
Would recommend Akash to anyone, Local or Visitors.
