LOVERS of India-inspired food will be lucky enough to have already experienced Akash Restaurant, which opened its doors in Wellingborough nearly 40 years ago.
Since then the team have built an impressive reputation for pulling out all the stops to ensure each customer has the very best experience, including guests keen to celebrate Christmas and the New Year.
Bookings are still being taken for the festive season at Akash which is in Wellingborough's Cambridge Street in easy walking distance of the town centre.
Guests can expect to sample authentic and tempting dishes from across the Indian sub-continent. Chefs skilfully combine spices to create a wide range of dishes. Menu favourites include chicken tikka masala, special mixed biryani, tandoori mixed grill and korai chicken.
Kurzi lamb or chicken, two Akash specialities which need to be ordered with 24 hours notice, are another favourite, with the dishes slowly cooked to ensure the meat is tender.
The restaurant can cater for parties of up to 60 guests which means work colleagues can enjoy a festive night out and enjoy alternatives to the traditional turkey and Christmas pudding.
The restaurant is co-owned and managed by Mohi Choudhury who has been in the business for nearly 50 years.
He said: "Our friendly staff are always keen to ensure everyone has a wonderful experience so we can make sure the food meets their tastes and they can relax in comfortable surroundings.
"We have built a wonderfully loyal customer base by simply offering excellent food and excellent service. We listen to our customers and make every effort to give them what they want."
The restaurant is open daily from 5.30pm and on Sundays has a lunchtime offer from midday to 2.30pm when customers can enjoy a three-course lunch for £7.95 which includes a starter, main course, side, pilau rice and nan, finishing off with coffee or ice cream.
