Food poisoned. On the loo forever. :( Nonsense of a place, staff incompetent. Loss for words how disappointing this visit was to me. Stones throw from the hotel so don't need repeat business. Fish and chips next door.

Located off the main drag but worth hunting out. They have an extensive menu that includes about 10 or so vegetarian choices so if you do eat meat you are not opting for just one token dish. Food was excellent in an old fashioned curry house way (This is a good thing) and prices very reasonable.

Service 10/10. Food 3/10. Aftermath - 0/10. I don't think I've ever been so ill after eating a curry, hardly surprising given the state of the alleyway where they dispose of their waste. The resulting stomach ache and toilet trips have completely ruined my weekend. Avoid this place no matter how desperate you are!

Went last night and it was disgusting. The draft beer was flat and off (kingfisher) and my main meal was inedible I just sat and ate my paratha plain. The chicken was rubbery. The starter was ok but spoiled by grease dripping off the flatbread . Never again

What can I say. We were a party of 7 who turned up at about 7:30pm and they didn't have a table but asked us to come back in 30 mins. On our return the table was ready and we were all looking forward to some food. We ordered popadoms and beer and then our starters and mains at 8:10pm.... More

I have not eaten in the Akash for nearly 20 years, it was excellent then but outstanding now. By far the best Indian cuisine restaurant in York in North Street. I was recognized by the manager/owner after 20 years. I fully recommended the Akash. Excellent service and very attentative to the guest at all times. Thank you for making our... More

Spoilt our night and got a takeaway at home. I've been going there on and off for 5yrs! Terrible shame cos the food used to be good. Would score... More

Went there for a chicken masala tandoori. No plain water was offered during the wait for our takeaway order. Chicken was okay but the masala was not that tasty. Not a choice in the near future
