The food was lovely but waiter was not particularly attentive, had to catch his attention to place an order.He was running around looking busy but neglected to check on us.When eventually we got a chance to order drinks he needed to be reminded about them when our main was served.To add to my irritation he was very clearly expecting a tip.Lucky for him my husband was more generous than I would have been.I will probably come back but never again during Ramadan. Hadn’t eaten all day and the lack of service was the last thing I needed.
Excellent place with interesting items on the menu that are not found in an ordinary Indian restaurant.

The menu shows prices excluding VAT. Seems a little pricy for the food and service recieved

Pricey but good toilets located downstairs past the bar. Reception not manned where jackets were kept
The food was fantastic. The service was woeful. I'd been looking forward to coming here for ages. Such a let down. Needs some strong management. Simple stuff. No welcome. No warmth. No asking if we wanted a drink. Ages to get drinks. Food arriving. Two items out on table. Waiter walked off mid service. A real shame.

Dear GeoffC, Thank you for the great rating and comments! We welcome you again anytime at Asha's Manchester. Kind regards, Helena
Completely disappointing visit. I've been to Asha's quite a few times and championed it to friends and colleagues when they're looking for somewhere to eat in Manchester - I certainly won't following the latest visit.
Initial drinks order took an age, the second was even longer. Who wants to enjoy a nice hot curry without any form of liquid on the side?
4 of us were dining and all ordered a curry but only three shown up with mine taking well over 20 minutes and arrived once everyone else had more or less finished - it was knocked off the bill but saving 16 quid didn't matter when the overall experience was super disappointing.
Was happy to give this exact feedback when I was there but who I presume was one of the more senior waiting staff was really pushy about why the meal and experience was bad for us and made it really awkward for us all.
1 star - won't be going back in a rush or recommending.

Dear MarilynJ, It's excellent to see such complimentary feedback after your visit to our restaurant. Thank you for leaving us a review and we are delighted to see that you enjoyed the food and service. We do hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Helena
Food was excellent, service superb. If I had any complaints was that it could have been cheaper, but in reality it was about as good as Indian as I’ve had. Breads delicious, mains were great and very tasty.
Dear domb, Thank you for your feedback! Our prices reflect the whole experience we offer all our guests from the ambience, service and to the freshly prepared food, so we are glad that you enjoyed what you have experienced. We hope to see you again. Kind regards, Helena
Nice food but slow service which for a pre theatre menu meant we didn’t have time for dessert and had to rush out. Pointless and frustrating to be brought a warm plate about 10 minutes before the food came and that was happening to everyone. Also I called ahead to check they did discounted parking at NCP as per the confirmation email and they confirmed they did however when you put the restaurant ticket in the machine it was rejected-again another pointless promise that leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
Gorgeous food and excellent service. Will visit again.
Can't recommend Asha's highly enough! My boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary here on Saturday night and it couldn't have been more perfect. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and the menu is one of a kind - with dishes such as venison samosa, lobster panchphoran and Lancashire cheese kulcha. Most importantly, the food was truly delicious - as were the cocktails and wine. All of the staff were absolutely lovely and the service was first-rate. We loved it! xx
Exceptional, lovely food with excellent informative staff in beautiful surroundings
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.
We had a great evening .We went at 6pm and had the early evening menu. The food was excellent and the price very good.
Very comfortable, not too crowded, exceptional waiter service, accomodates special occasions, nicely decorated, very nice luxurious bar with low lighting. Very clean and tidy. tables not too close together, fairly priced
Went here to celebrate our engagement with my family. Service was superb, food was stunning and it's in a great location. Highly recommend.
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.
Friendly staff, great food, cooked & served well. Not a great choice for the lunch time specials which was good value but plenty on the regular more expensive menu.
Excellent Service and rich food. Would have preferred to have Asha's songs as music.
Great food and amazing place and in a great area service could of been better due being little slow but over all very good and will be going again
We like the food there - the vegetarian options could be more.
Food was lovely, but a little pricey, especially drinks.
Delicious curry. We had the chefs specials . The staff were charming and helpful. It is expensive for curry but for a special occasion would be worth it
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.
We had a lovely evening at Asha's. Beautiful setting, friendly staff, especially Pablo our waiter (Muchas gracias!). As for the food - outstanding, freshly prepared food with great flavours put together; presentation was excellent well thought out, just perfect. Looking for to having another night out here in the not to distant future.
Gorgeous food, great service and fabulous cocktails.
Fantastic night with great food and outstanding service from our waiter Micheal!
Amazing meal- every course was perfect
The sauces were smooth and spices just perfect
I can't remember enjoying a meal like this, for a long time
Absolutely amazing food & the staff were lovely! Would go back in a heartbeat
We have wanted to go to Asha's for quite a while now and we weren't disappointed at all. It was a fantastic experience and we were able to enjoy amazing Indian food. The staff was great! So helpful and explained the entire menu to us. Overall a great dining experience.
We will definitely come back!
Great food, good ambience, a bit expensive though.
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.
As always a faultless dining experience and pleasurable
visit to Asha's in Manchester, authentic Indian cuisine of the highest order outside of India
We were really impressed. Great food and excellent service.
