Was looking forward to our first visit to this restaurant, big mistake, as we found the staff not very welcoming, very unfriendly and as the evening progressed the service was became non existent. Time and time again throughout the evening the waiters just ignored us at our table, never once checking whether we were happy with the meal or offering to assist us any further. The food was okay it is just unfortunate that the waiter service was any better. They also had the cheek to add 10% to our bill for service which I politely asked them to remove before I settled the bill. I had informed the manager that in all the indian restaurants that we have visited this was the most unfriendly. I also informed him that this was the last time that I would be coming to this restaurant.

The Akash has been in Northcote Road for ages now but we haven't been for a while. Oh dear. It was full, very full. There was a TV on in the corner beaming Bollywood movies (thankfully without the sound) but it was like having a bad twitch in the corner of your eye. Prompt service of poppadoms. Took ages taking the proper food and drink order. Food took nearly an hour to arrive by which time I was feeling pretty tetchy as were diners on either side of us. Owner spent the entire meal polishing the bottles on his bar. 10 per cent service charge added to the bill. And two glasses of something fizzy arrived (presumably as a way of apologising for rotten service). Not good enough Akash!

I feel a bit bad writing this as I used to really like this place. Three days ago I took my brother there for a treat. It was Friday, not too busy, but after waiting one and a half hours for our food I reminded our waiter (really nice bloke), and within 4- mins our food arrived, well some of it, but half of it cold - this I can't take, as you wonder when the food was fresh - had it been sitting there for an hour waiting to go in the micro etc etc.

We left - and we tried to pay for the booze etc, but they would not let us - which is a point in their favour. Real shame.
