We thoroughly enjoyed a joint birthday meal here - the service is exceptional, friendly and thoughtful. The food is another level - a cut above the usual Indian fare. Very impressed!

The food was superb I have eaten in Michelin starred Indian restaurants where the food was not as good. The platter at £85 seems expensive but it was worth it and the service and overall experience was really great. I was dropping my son at Manchester Uni and I will make sure I pick him up to give Ashas another try!

Really good atmosphere, Good food but a bit overpriced however the day we went we ended up getting our food for free due to a partnership with MasterCard and open table I think? So all we had to pay for were the drinks so no complaints! We were served very quickly and got our food really quick! Was served by Minna who was very lovely and professional and lovely to chat to.

We came here for a family birthday meal, our first time eating out since the lockdown, and have only good things to say about our experience.
It was a Sunday night, and the place was quiet, but the friendliness of the staff and the lovely interior made for a great atmosphere. Apparently the menu is reduced due to Covid-related reasons (economic?) but there is still plenty to choose from.
Delicious food all round -- the dishes we ordered all had a hearty spice kick to them: we loved it all.
Waiting staff were absolutely wonderful, and made the whole experience very special, even singing a (masked) happy birthday and bringing a complimentary dessert. Thanks Asha's for such a memorable night out.

Scared of having a curry from anywhere else now as I just don’t think it can live up to how exceptional that Tikka Masala was. Best curry place in Manchester, possibly the UK.

My husband and a I went for his birthday.
As it was the last day for eat in to help out there were two menus on offer. My husband asked our waiter a question regarding the menu which the waiter sniggered at and walked across to the tills to tell the rest of the waiters, loud enough so we could hear.
I thought this was quite rude as we only asked him a question and didnt need to be made fun of for this.
The starter was also extremely dry and the main course has been better in the past.
I was disappointed, I have been a loyal customer to Asha's in the past and have always advised my family and friends to visit which they have unfortunately the food isn't quite up to the standard for the prices anymore.

We loved the food but the veg options are very limited compared to other restaurants.

Though were a bit disappointed that we had to check the bill and notify you that you havent applied 50% discount on the additional item we ordered. While visiting the restuarant of your stature, we shouldnt have to check the bill and find errors. seems a bit unprofessional !

Hi, my partner booked me on Voucher for ashes. She paid £27 for a meal deal worth £70. But at the end of the meal she gave me a bill for 66 pounds witch was not correct. Because I’d already paid before hand. I tried to explain to the manager but she just ignored my request. So I paid the bill and left because I was with my daughter . I have never used these deals before. always paid cash and my bills were always over £100. And I have been a frequent quest to ashes.

Second time to Ashas and it was again top drawer. The food is extremely good and they looked four of us very well. The wine was also excellent, and the service very good. Yes, it’s not cheap but it’s a top top restaurant so what do you expect. Very good night out, again.

We have dined here before and it was great, hence why I booked again.

Upon arrival this time we were shown to our seat by a very frosty front of house person. After waiting for far long we had to ask for drinks.
The starters were OK. Then the main came. The chicken was raw in the middle. They took away my partners plate which had other edible items on and said they would replace the chicken but not anything else on the plate. The person who came to deal with it was almost argumentative saying the chicken was cooked when it blatantly wasn't.
They then charged us half for each of the food items what were left which we didn't fully eat as the evening had been ruined. The girl who was our waitress was very pleasant and its a shame all staff are no where near as consistent or as nice as she was.
Not one to complain but £65 for quite possibly the worst dining experience I've had.
Needless to say we won't be returning.
We went to dishoom the week before which was perfect and beats ashas hands down. If you want a decent curry, friendly staff and good atmosphere then head to dishoom instead

The fish in batter was nice and also the seek kebab. The mains were very disappointing especially the butter milk chicken curry. The level of food that was delivered was way below my expectations and for the price your expecting dishes full of flavour. They clearly used canned potatoes I mean who at this level would do that? Extremely poor and with so many better options in Manchester I’m surprised if they get repeat customers.

Overall,very good,but one or two minor points.On arrival,I ordered a Cocktail,which I expected before the meal: it did not arrive until I had started my main course.Unfortunately,we were sat by a table where the four people there talked and laughed at the top of their voices,which seems to be fairly common,unfortunately,when eating out. Food was excellent,and very good value.

Decor was quite good as per Manchester standards as I have come across restaurants here having no aesthetic sense of decor. Staff was friendly. Food was excellent, both in taste & quantity, comparable to any of the good restaurants in India(which I have found as the benchmark so far). The disappointing fact for me was that despite this being such a highly ranked restaurant in a big city like Manchester, the staff did not seem to have been trained in handling cutlery & setting up the table. A blemish on the decor was also that table - cloths were missing on the tables.

We stumbled across this place late afternoon and was surprised when we managed to get a table for the same night and at a time we wanted. The feel of the restaurant was calm and friendly, the food was amazing. We are so happy to have found this place we will definitely return soon.

Couldn’t have asked for a better dining experience. Food was delicious & full of flavour. The only downside was the poor selection & quality of lagers but that can be forgiven when the food Is that good. Staff were polite & very tentative. Restaurant very clean & the vibe was chilled & relaxed. Would definitely dine again.

First time visiting Ashas and we really enjoyed it. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was freshly cooked and really tasty. Tables were placed a safe distance away from each other, with a one way system in place too.

Excellent food, excellent service. The curry was perfect, and the starters of kebab, chicken and fish were succulent, soft and had a nice touch of elegance. The mango lasso could have done with a little less ginger inside it, otherwise a great experience. Will come.back again. The service was second to none
