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

The best Indian restaurant in the West Midlands without doubt. The butter chicken dish is like nothing you will ever have eaten. A real taste of authentic Indian cuisine.

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.

I visited for my father in law's 60th birthday. The service was excellent and our waiter, Thomas, was highly attentive. We ordered a variety of drinks and the cocktails especially were really good. The food was lovely, although rather pricey. I would definitely return but not somewhere you can go on a budget!

After many meals in Ashas this was the most disappointing. We shared Calamari which was cooked to a cinder and far too crisp. Both of us then had the chefs special Lamb Biryani which has always been the signature dish in Ashas. This time round it was awful - the rice was very dry and burnt at the top, the lamb pieces were hard and stringy, hard because fried too much before being mixed with the rice. Overall the quality of the lamb was inferior whereas it should have been tender and succulent. For the exorbitant price of over £19 this lamb dish was truly tasteless.
Everything else - the ambiance, service and general atmosphere was superb. I would in future only recommend Ashas to friends provided they NOT choose Lamb Buryani.

I’ve been here for numerous special occasions and each time it has delivered spectacularly. Be it the choice of food for meat eaters or veggies such as myself, the advice and courtesy of the staff when being unable to choose between dishes or the general ambiance: it’s always lived up to its expectations and worth the drive and cost.

This was recommended by my friend who visited the restaurant. I was very impressed with the handling of the booking and they kept in contact with me until the day to confirm my attendance.
The cocktails choice were different but very nice. I had the Rickshaw Fizz.
The food was delicious and fresh.
The service was really good as well. Service with a smile. Always helpful.
Definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves delicious Indian food that has a kick using fresh ingredients.

Lots of staff running around, not very productive, long time before anybody offered a drink. Curry was ok but not justifiable for £18.00 popadoms were poor, over all it’s over rated. You can have better experiences at other curry restaurants better quality and better prices with more attentive staff.

I came to Ashas with my husband a few days ago. Occasion was a birthday datez The service really was quick and friendly. A really nice atmosphere you do feel really cosy due to intimately lit setting. Only bad thing I picked up on I ordered a curry for 17.95 and it only had 3 bits of chicken in so I didn’t eat it so my boyfriend could have it instead .
I didn’t want to complain because everyone was really nice.
The chicken biryani was lovely. For two curries , biryani and 2 drinks each it came to £72 which was reasonable minus the chicken curry hiccup.
Thank you, would come again

Lovely food and service. Unfortunately we had a table close to the bar area where large group of people was waiting and having their drinks. They have been tripping over our table, nearly sitting on it, and The noice was just overbearing. Unfortunately that spoiled our special birthday dinner...

Food good though expensive. Service was slow. My dish was full of coconut but no mention of coconut on menu or I would not have ordered. Something in it made me itch and scratch all over all night long. Was a shame as otherwise would have been good.
