Asha's is really super for a celebration meal. Delicious Indian food - a cut above your regular balti place. We've been 4 or 5 times now & plan to return again. Highly recommended. :)

Business Lunch menu is very good value. Curries sound ‘standard’ but taste amazing. Best Rogan Josh ever! Also very good with an allergy request.

We had dinner at Asha’s on 28th August. We loved the ambience of the place, it’s was nice and cozy.
For :
- the papdi chat was very tasty. We loved it.
- the chicken tandoori was also lovely when eaten hot and the chutney for it was spot on.
- kulfi was well presented but the licorice taste was over powering. And the stick in the kulfi didn’t complement the fine dine

Against :
- the chicken briyani was a complete let down. It was tasteless, soggy with tasteless chunks of chicken
- the rumali roti was thick and hard
- baingan bartha lacked taste although well presented

Overall, it was alright though some dishes need to be improved on.
I would also like to suggest that the piped in music be that of Asha Bhosle, as she is a brilliant singer and afterall, it is her restaurant. This will give guest ,who don’t know her music, a chance to know her melodies.

We were really excited to go here from the reviews. But really let down.

The service was okay, nothing special, didn’t even have a drinks menu given to us, so blindly choosing drinks.

The food was very very average. We have a lamb Muscott and the coriander chicken, both were fairly uninspiring.

This combined with the cost and the competition is simply crazy. 7.95 for two average samosas. 4.25 for a single cheese naan, and £18 for an average curry.

Especially when you could walk 5 minutes and go to tamatanga, half the price and the food is much better and more authentic and the cocktails are great.

The food at Asha’s seemed to me to be bland and made more palletable for a western audience, which may be who they are catering for - people who don’t care about the price, but want a nice atmosphere with westernised food.

Also wrote similar things on the iPad they gave us after the meal and no one contacted us regarding the comments

Great food, excellent surroundings, splendid service and a great atmosphere. I can cook 👨‍🍳 & I can assure you the chefs know exactly what they are doing, they take no shortcuts and you will get authentic Asian cuisine if you are able to choose from the superb menus. Desserts are not neglected (as they are in some Asian restaurants) and the bar is fully stocked and offers a fine selection of cocktails 🍸 to complete the experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Asha's - had come with high expectations on recommendation and were not disappointed. The tandoori monkfish starter was a particularly notable and awesome taste experience for me but all our dishes were excellent. The Maharajah's Mistress cocktail was something else - so good, I had to have a second one! Fabulous evening - need to try our more local Manchester Asha's now.

Food was fantastic! We had starters and mains and they were really good. However I found it a little pricey. The bill was £100 for 2 starters, 2 curries, 1 garlic naan, 1 garlic rice, 2 beers and 2 mocktails.

We had the pre-theatre set menu, great value for money and the food was very good quality and fresh. It's great that they are aware of coeliac disease and the importance of keeping my meal gluten free but it would have been nice to have been offered something else, eg a dahl or aloo gobi as I couldn't eat the popadoms or nan bread that was included in the price.

The food was truly outstanding! We really enjoyed the evening and loved the menu. In fact, the menu almost had too many options as we took a long time to decide between all the lovely sounding dishes.

We throughly enjoyed the curry from the specials menu - murg khushnan? It was excellent! L

This was my first time eating at ashas, I booked it as I heard so many great things about the restaurants from others. The occasion was our anniversary and the service and quality of food we received was incredible, the cocktails we had was the best cocktails I have ever tastes and seen the "Delhi devil" was stunning to look at. Thank you to the ashas team for making it an incredible and memorable meal for both myself and my partner.

It was my sons birthday and I had mentioned the lunch menu to him as I have had it in the past. I advised him the food was really good and wanted him to experience the flavours. He was not disappointed and loved it all as I expected he would. It was so relaxing and at no time did we feel rushed as you do in a lot of restaurants nowadays. Definitely worth another visit to try the main menu.
