Having not been able to get a table without booking, I thought it would be great food. They didn’t disappoint. The lamb dish was really tender, which at most restaurants lamb is normally hard to chew. The spicy chicken tikka dish was great. The service is good, the food came out in good. The only thing I didn’t think was great is the price of the food. The place gets packed so they must be making enough money to drop the prices.

We selected the lunch menu which, initially thought to be a bit limited. However, we found the dishes to be excellent and the overall value to be very good. The service was excellent too, even to the point where we were allowed to taste the wines before we chose our included glass! Would recommend!

The food we ordered was fantastic. The meat was tender and fresh in The kebab platter. And as the biryani festival was on, we ordered Chitrana fish biryani. Oh my days!! It was superb. Fresh fish, in a Lemon infused rice! Perfect. Definitely go again!

Went for our anniversary, was expecting exceptional food, but average, atmosphere was nice, busy and very noisy when trying to talk, shame we were on a table for 2 and couldn’t sit next to one another. You have to try different restaurants though.

Excellent as always. My first visit was with Any and Tracey Blackwell, regular customers. I have been several times since with family and friends. I celebrated my Bachelor’s degree in 2016. This visit was to celebrate my Masters degree. I was looking forward to choosing king prawn masala, a dish they cook excellently but it was not on the menu. What I had was excellent however

This was a special treat for my partner’s 50th Birthday. We had heard of it’s reputation from someone who had eaten there. We were lucky enough to park on Newhall Street as it was a Sunday night and quiet . The Restaurant, food & Service did not disappoint and the low lighting made it feel very cosy despite being such a large place. My partner was pleased with the quality of the Kingfisher Lager too. Although the prices are higher the whole experience was worth it and food was excellent.

Great Food- can’t fault that. One of the next we have had in recent times.

However, we were expecting the restaurant to have more things/ pics related to Asha ji. Their life journey pics on the walls and most importantly their songs—- not music to play to audible levels.

If you are going for an experience based on Asha ji’s life and songs- it might not live up to expectations.

We reserved the latest possible table for a Birthday lunch
There are six of us in total all ladies. We were greeted promptly, there were only one other couple in the restaurant which I would usually say how about 80 people.
We sat down and had a look at the menu and was then told we have to move to a larger table as our starter and main course would be coming out at the same time due to fact that the kitchen was closing at 230 (Our table is booked for 2 PM)
Considering we paid over £50 per head for a very rushed lunch although the food was lovely, this restaurant definitely did not meet our expectations.
If I had known that this was going to be the case regarding having starters and main at the same time I would never have booked a table at 2 PM, in actual fact I would never have booked the restaurant had I known this.

Exceptionally interesting menu.
I’m vegetarian and there are a lot of varied choices for starter, main and deserts.
The atmosphere is intimate and service is attentive but not intrusive.
Simply the best Indian food I know of.
Worthy of five stars.....credit where it’s due... 👍

The place was nice, but the food was ok. The waiter haggled us about buying a drink, even though we asked for water. The non-alcoholic drink was good, but if we ask for water get us water. We went to Asha's for the first time, thinking that it would be great experience, but it was just an ordinary restaurant with average food for high cost.
