Me and my friends went on an extremely busy Friday night but we still got greeted with a smile which is important for me. The food came quite quick considering how busy it was. I ordered a lamb naga which was very tasty and the lamb was very tender. We stayed for 2 hours all left feeling happy.

Visited this place on a long weekend trip to Blackpool with my wife. What a mistake! It was a Friday night as so busy but we were greeted by rude staff. I wish we had left at that point. It took 5 minutes to get a table ready which was okay for a busy night when we hadn't booked. But... More

The staff were very welcoming and polite, we were allowed our choice of table and were given ample time to choose and order, without any rush or hurry. The beer was... More

As vegetarians we know that we can usually rely on a curry. The Akash had loads of dishes to choose from, we had the bhajis and veg pakoras to start with and saag paneer and tarka dhall as main. They were all amazingly tasty and fresh.Also the staff were very friendly and the prices were good too.
