A strange place, never been to an Indian before with no Indian staff, however we were sat quickly and politely Popadoms not the best, average at best. Orders taken with no delay and food served promptly. Dishes were tasty and appealing , portion size was very large . Nan came cut up and was at best cool, when I prefer... More

Myself and my wife were looking for a nice sit down lunch in Elgin and stumbled upon Akash. As self proclaimed curry veterans we were excited after the reviews on Tripadvisor. We have had curries all over the UK and truthfully have never felt like leaving after immediately sitting down. The gentleman that greeted us was friendly and we proceeded... More

I am sorry that you feel the need to write such disappointing review I find the comments , unfair untrue and unfounded, it is true that we only serve drinks with a meal as this is a condition of our premises license More

Went here for a family meal and it definitely did not disappoint! Food was great and was impressed by the service we received. We met the new owner/manager who gave us a free drink at the end of our meal which topped off the evening. I would recommend coming here again and can't wait for our next visit :)

There's a lot of options for indian food in the Elgin area. This is the best one we've tried so far. Food was generous, good quality and delicious. The restaurant itself is comfortable and the service is good. For takeaway they offer a generous 20 percent discount, making this a fairly affordable option. We liked it a lot and will... More

Went here last week with family while I was in Elgin on business. All three of us had different meals and all were very good. Prices were reasonable and the standard of service was very good. I will now make this a regular visit each time I am in Elgin. Top marks.

Went here for lunch on a Saturday and was expecting a great meal after a previous visit. Unfortunately this wasn't the case. Restaurant was very quiet and felt our meal was rushed because they wanted to close early. The worst thing was the prawns in my curry hadn't been de-veined. One of my pet hates. Won't be back.

Very disappointed last time we had a take away. The food consisted of sauce with a few pieces of meat swimming in it. Not the standard I usually expect from them
