Big name but not that special. Requested a nice table for a birthday lunch. When arrived table was normal nothing special. the vegetables in the korma where frozen not fresh. The Papadams tasted oily and the thick fries where also oily. Expected a higher class of food for this kind of restaurant and name. Very disappointed. Not impressed at all. Sorry.

The ambiance is great. However a critical note on the food.
The rice dishes were uninspiring: the salmon biryani lacked refinement with large chunks of fish that hadn't been marinated so the fish tasted different form the rest of the biryani. The lamb byriani was a bit dry. and could have had Maybe the chef of that day was not specialised in biryani. Will try other dishes than these next time.

One of the best Indian meals we've ever had! Lovely classy surroundings, wonderful attentive service, amazing food. Interesting, in a good way, selection of cocktails. It is on the more expensive side, but not exhorbantant, but you do get what you pay for - for those special occasions! Will definitely return.

Both the restaurant and the bar had a great atmosphere. The food was excellent and had a number of options that were different from your "everyday" Indian Restaurant. Cannot fault the service. First time visit but definitely going again.

For the price it should have been excellent and was not.
Food looked interesting but its taste was not good.
Others in my party enjoyed the meal and for somewhere different to go was OK , but have better tasting food at my local Indian or at home.
Ladies where expected to go down 2 or 3 flights of stairs to the bathroom, not good especially if dressed up for a fancy restaurant in heels.
The service was lack lustre and food and drink prices very expensive by comparison.
I wouldn't go again, even if given a discount.

Considering this restaurant is been advices in the Michelin guide we had high expectation but alas were disappointed. Atmosphere fine, not great music though, come on you can do better then early 2000 loungy compilations, maybe some cool indian Sitar jazz ! To eat we had lamb chops to start that were dry and had two creative curries, the chicken korma one was good, nothing unusual but nice melting chicken, the lamb was alas over cooked, spicy but flavourless. I also wish they had more small tasting dishes. The chef must not be the same anymore since they got the Michelin guide recommendation or maybe he has lost his spark. What a shame.

Great restaurant with exceptional staff and welcoming and friendly customer service. The food was amazing!!! And the ambiance and setting of the restaurant felt sophisticated and classy. It was my 1st trip to Manchester and I booked this for my mums birthday. The complimentary cheesecake on a birthday plate with a candle was a lovely touch at the end for her. Next time I'm back in Manchester I will definitely book again I'd highly recommend it.

Extremely salty meal left me up all night drinking water.

I was dining alone and asked them to accomodate a party of 1 wrt portion sizes so that I could try more dishes. They refused.

Spoiled the experience and I would never go back

Extremely overpriced. There's quite a few Indian restaurants to choose from now in the city center. Asha's provides a very classy dining atmosphere and offers very good attentive table service. However the food didn't really blow me away, but the bill certainly did.
