This was our first visit to Birmingham and would definitely recommend eating at Asha's. Lovely surroundings, beautiful food and a super ambience. Will certainly return next time we are in Birmingham.

The food was absolutely excellent, genuinely one of the best curries I've had in the last few years. Similarly, the Presidents' Platter was excellent and the Lobster some of the best food I've ever eaten. The service was polite and efficient. While expensive, it really is excellent food and a brilliant all-round experience.

Not a bad place. A bit hit and miss if I'm honest. Some of the food is over-spicy and some was just right. Nice setting, huge place. Not sure if I'd try it again. Jumbo prawns were AMAZING, lamb chops over cooked and very spicy.

My Wife & I were greeted with a warm welcome when we arrived and was seated promptly. The lady who seated us checked our booking and wished us a Happy Anniversary as she checked the booking before seating us. Our waiter Shahid was very helpful and explained the dishes very well and also asked whether we would like it spicier or mild as us being Punjabi like some of our food spicier. The food was superb and the Muscat Gosht was sublime (the best I've ever had!). The meal & drinks were brilliant and they even gave us a cake with a candle for our anniversary which was a nice touch. From start to finish, the experience we had was a great one and would definitely come back again. Highly recommended.

Excellent service and food was beautiful so much so the table next to me stuck his finger in it (,yuck) staff were amazing and replaced the meal. I wish I had of found this place earlier. Extensive cocktails and good range of wine and excellent value for money

It was our first visit bit disappointed due to food quality popadoms were not cooked properly and one of the rumali roti was so chewy to eat.
Although main course dishes were fine.

Went there for an early valentines day , everything about it was pretty good, although i recommend not getting any appetizers if you're getting a main because the mains were huge and i regretted not having more room to have more.

and side note their naan bread is the best i've ever had in my life

1. They did not provide us with drinking water until half dinner was done.
2. The candles on the dining table were not lit, where as on the other table, they were lit.
3. The service was slow as we had to wait for half hour between our starters and main course. Also we had ordered 5 rotis, but the waiter got only 4. So we had to wait for another 20 min for the 5th roti.

This hotel needs significant improvement in the service.

Have been visiting Ashas Birmingham over the past 10 years food & service always consistent only small couple of gripes on this visit.Firstly on arrival they bought popadom’s & dips thought they may have been complimentary but were on bill at £6.50 !
Secondly & this always happens when you book a 2 for 1 open table promo on main course when they bring you the final bill & it’s never on there so check your bill only when asking it is then applied just a little cheeky on both accounts.

I always wanted to try Asha's as it has been known as one of the best Indian in town - now they are Michellin starred and I was wondering how their food is like. There was a 2 for 1 for Mains deal so i thought it was a great opportunity to try out. Locations is good but parking was a bit of problem - I really should have booked well after 1930. anyway - ambience was quite good - it was really busy for Sunday night. I tried Lamb curry - the meat was massive but cooked really well - so soft and tender - I really didn't need a knife! I can taste fresh spices and it was really aromatic- it was meant to be medium hot - I felt it was a lot hotter than how i would describe as medium hot. :-) but it was a kind of spiciness it doesn't last long in the mouth so it was quite pleasant. Food was wonderful but it surely not cheap. I mean you get a good quality as you are paying a good price. I think it is a nice way to introduce to michelin starred fine dining - Service was really quick and they are very attentive- truly nice restaurant- no wonder they got a star :-)

The food here is absolutely terrific. We came from South Wales and were recommended to come here. It was well worth it and actually the best indian restaurant we have ever been to. Spicy, fresh, full of flavour.
The only downside was it was incredibly expensive, £150 for 2 adults, 2 children, we did have wine but that was £20.
Portion sizes were good, unlike other michelin star restaurants. The fish biryani was stunning. Highly recommend it. Will definitely go here next time i'm in Birmigham.

Potentially lovely place but...

All you could hear all night was loud washing up ... not acceptable in a normal indian let alone in one that is aiming to be so much better.

Arriving on a late train so booked a table at 10.30 (when tables were available to book until 11pm). Greated by being told that I must order everything straight away as the kitchen shut at 11pm... not welcoming at all. After that staff were great though.

Food was good but very sad not to have the offer of any more innovative dishes. Just good versions of a limited number of standard dishes. Surely some stunning new innovative dishes and things with a twist should be expected if you are aiming to not be a standard indian.

Cooking was good even if I was not served the dish I ordered. I was hungry and it was something I nearly chose so I just carried on.

This could be so good, but I will not return to listen to loud washing up all night, and a complete lack of imagination in the kitchen. A shame as with a little work it could be so good.

Repeat visit with work colleagues, Food quality was excellent again, however:
1/ Very cold in the restaurant, had to sit with my coat on and the waiters did not even comment or question this.
2/ Decided to have curry in a hurry lunch instead of deluxe lunch. Plates arrived stone cold so the curry and rice soon became cold whilst eating lunch, especially in a cold room
3/ £14 is very expensive for 1 bowl of rice and bowl of curry. Price increases (and for the deluxe lunch) do not make this very good value for money at all. Numerous other quality restaurant in immediate vicinity that provide far better lunch deals.
Probably won't return in future, which is a shame as have been with work colleagues numerous times in the past, but we all agree it is too expensive now. This was backed up by the restaurant been empty when we left.
Thank you, Ian
