Really disappointed with the food. The dishes on menu Should really have allergen labels. I have a nut allergy and despite the waiter informing the chef to prepare in a separate area I had a nut allergy .

Lovely restaurant food wasn’t as nice as expected.

Defo not worth the price

Excellent in all respects. In my humble opinion this is the very best Indian cuisine has to offer. Service is exemplary and food quality is simply superb.

High-end Asian food, go with an open mind and do not expect back street Indian pricing, location and ambiance dictate that this is a notch or three up from you Friday night curry. Personally would recommend as enjoyed my evening here, however appreciate people have different budgets to work to, if you want and expect you're Friday night Balti for £4.95 this place isn't for you, if you want an eating experience and fine dining go for it.

Service was v good , the veg starter platter was cooked to perfection - especially the paneer and spinach and papdi chaat. Hare baingan ka bharta( Maia favourite) was our favourite and bhindi do pyaaza was rich n spicy. All rotis were good, fish curry was v nice . Mix veg raita was devoid of flavour so can give it a miss. The Indian dessert platter finished the meal on a high - gajar halwa reminded me of mums cooking so lovingly made and ras malai was just melt in the mouth.

The food was outstanding and the restaurant is very well decorated. The service was slightly confused though and the restaurant could have done with been a bit better organised. But still a great experience.

Went for a special occasion meal- waiter ordered wrong meal, admitted he had got it wrong but it would take a further 20mins for the correct order to arrive while my partners meal was at the table so we were unable to eat together! The mistake was not mentioned again neither by waiter or manager and when we made them aware that we weren’t happy about the mistake and having to eat separately we were made to feel inferior by the manager just looking at us over the bar obviously discussing us with the waiter and offering us a mere 10% discount which didn’t even cover the meal we had to wait for. All in all I think had the manager or staff have accepted the mistake and offered to try and make things right my review would have been different but to disregard it was totally wrong and for that reason I would not return or reccommended.

Great quality food. Restaurant was a little noisier than would’ve liked with some drunk customers but not too annoying. Service was good when given but took too long to be served and for food to be cleared etc. due to business in restaurant. Overall fair experience, with good quality food.

Food was brilliant, however service wasn’t good. Asked the waiter to pack our food to take away. Instead it was thrown away. Customers who arrived after us were served and brought food and drinks before us.

Food was very tasty and they prepared everything as per Indian style. The best kebab I had in the UK.

Our waiter -Shahid was the best. The item prices are very expensive compared to portions served otherwise overall experience was great and memorable.

Food is fairly overpriced, biryani was nice in general but lamb was dry. Okra and aubergine curry was nice but overpriced at £15 per dish. Price:performance not great.

I was underwhelmed and unimpressed by the starters. The Amritsari fish was excessively salty and the gol gappa were soggy bottom by the time they arrived on our table. Have honestly had much better of these items, in much less awarded restaurants.
The dhabha chicken and seekh kabab were well cooked and seasoned and rumali rotis were good.
Service was lukewarm, at best.
Overall, not worth the hype. Been to better Michelin starred Indian restaurants.
Cocktails were overpriced too.

Asha's was a lovely experience. We went for a friend's birthday. The restaurant is very nice, we ordered drinks at the bar before being shown to the table. Service was good and the staff very helpful. One word of warning if you choose the présidents platter don't go over board on the mains. I would recommend the présidents platter though that was a real treat. We will be going back.

Really enjoyed Asha’s, food & service both excellent. It’s more expensive than I’d normally pay for a curry, but you know that before you book, and for that extra money you get an extra special meal!

Wasn’t as fun as we anticipated. Chicken in the tikka masala was a bit tough as was the lobster.
However, fantastic prawns and otherwise a nice experience
