Open space is the meaning of Akash, and you may well believe it too because, although the food was amazing and plentiful, frankly a little on the tepid side but the guy did get lost on route and to be honest I would have wrapped up the box in foil, it is cheap enough and the heat would have been...

I've had a few meals from akash, to say it's hot and miss is about right. Some times the food is fantastic and other times it's not very nice at all. It's also not cheap, the average curry house outside of a city does charge more but I have found for the quality the price is high.

This premise is closed due to fire damage. But on a previous visit with friends the staff were lazy and obviously did not know about table service. Starter was finished and rather than provide fresh/clean cutlery the took our starter cutlery of the plate and set it on the table again. Food was terrible.

Not a fan of Curries. But this restaurant is good authentic Indian Restaurant. Friendly and Hospitable staff. Waiters know the kind of food. Especially if you are unsure what to order. Worth visiting if your in Helensburgh. Generous servings.

First time visiting in years and the only thing missing is Dennis. The food is still as good as I remember it. There is a very good selection of dishes and reasonably priced. The restaurant was very quiet, the staff were welcoming. Only negative was the clarity of offers that were available

Visited here for the first time in about 15 years. Have to say, I will be going back. The food was delicious and a nice temperature. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Price was, was pleasantly surprised. They have various deals and it's worthwhile checking them out.

I took a chance and visited the Akash, the first time in a long long while. The standard of food remains the same, very good, but there is no Indian decor to give you that Indian ambience. Its still good food, and you wont go away disapointed. The prices are also reasonable. This used to be my first choice Indian... More

Have gone to this restaurant for many years having enjoyable well cooked food. Recently rather than dine in as the decor has seen better days we have opted for a take away. The time before last , the curries were unedible as they were far too hot. We put it down as one of those things. Maybe we should have... More
