This Indian restaurant has been here for over 30 years it's used to be highly rated . I haven't eaten in here for like 15 years and the last delivery I had from here over a year ago; it was not that great. I came here a month ago with a mate and we had lamb madras a biriani and... More

Unpretentious but decent supplier of curries to weary travellers. Go find and enjoy simple well cooked meals.

I came here with a colleague when we were staying in the area, he did a quick google search and identified this as the nearest place. We found it (just), and I was really surprised to find such wonderful food - really among the best I've had in London, all for a very reasonable price. This place is on my... More

As a local, Akash has been a favourite of my parents for over 35 years. Having visited the restaurant and making orders for home delivery, the quality of the food and service has always been of a high standard!!!! Highly recommended!!!

We have lived in Maida Vale in London for 6 years and have tried every Indian restaurant in the area and Akash is our favourite. It doesn't look great from the outside but the food is delicious, the service is pleasant, and the atmosphere is nice and clean. The owner is very helpful and attentive and apparently the restaurant has... More

I discoverd Akash by word of mouth of some friend living not too far from the restaurant. It's hidden by a staircase but once you find out about it, you will not be disappointed. The food is delicious and authentic with generous portions, and cheap price. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming; I love the 'old school' allure of this... More

Scruffy little place and no customers in all the time we ate here, basic toilets like going to an out house and the heating provided by numerous portable gas fires. Its an experience, but the main point is the food was really good, right up there with the best curries I've had so dont let the basic look put you... More

A small unprepossessing restaurant with the most consistently fabulous food and friendly service. I started eating there with my partner 30 years ago and long since moved from the area but we still travel back for special occasions. I can honestly say that despite high expectations the food has never disappointed

We come and go but still come back to this little gem in Edgware Road. The menu isn't extensive but is well cooked and tasty. It is good value for money. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The Kulfi ice cream is wonderful.
