About Akash Indian Brasserie

Such a restaurant is Akash Indian Brasserie in Darwen on the outskirts of Blackburn, where they proudly serve the local community with high-quality Indian dishes from their location on Duckworth Street, while also providing a friendly welcome and a fully-stocked bar with which to wash down your food.

Further Information

There are plenty of elements that need to come together to create a superb Indian restaurant. A friendly welcome and a decently-stocked bar are important, of course, as is an easy-to-reach location. Akash Indian Brasserie on Duckworth Street in the centre of Darwen – a short hop from the Darwen train station, and therefore easily accessed from Blackburn and wider Lancashire – has all of these things, as well as the superb selection of Indian dishes that one would expect from a local curry house.

On arriving at an Indian restaurant, the first thing most people need is a cold pint and a plate of poppadoms. Akash Indian Brasserie offers an array of Indian starters to pick from – kebabs, tandoori specialities, pakoras and more – and all the curries that are beloved of the public in Darwen and Blackburn, from creamy passanda and korma dishes to spicy jalfrezi and balti specialities. Book a table at their restaurant on Duckworth Street for a proper Indian feast.

Good Food, good service. However Staff like RAPTORS over your change. As if they believe it is their pregorative to any monies returned in the payment saucer. A Bit like a dog biting it's masters dogs bone while tthere is still meat on it. OUCH!

I booked a table and they still made our family wait and gave us a small table for 9 people, it only fitted 7 of us when I asked to change they said no.
