First time here and we’ll definitely be back!! Food tasted amazing and the portions were great too!! Staff were super friendly and very attentive!! Great start to our night!!
Couldn’t finish our mains do next time I think we’ll either split a starter or not have one. We were so full afterwards. We will be back, unsure when, but we will be back!! Been a long. Time since we received such great service.

Food and staff are great. My only issue is that we were all crushed in together and it made me feel a bit anxious Perhaps downstairs could have been utilised.

We have been going to Ashoka west end for 30 years to be honest this was not a good meal the service was great but unfortunately the food was the worst we have had
The rice was stuck together the lamb curry was like nothing I have tasted before very strange almost like beef stock
Unfortunately this wa not up to Ashoka standard very disappointing

The food is excellent and the menu is very varied. Overall it's a lovely place to go.

Our only issue on our recent visit want that the wait staff seemed to be very inexperienced, struggled to understand us when ordering, and were at our table over ten times during our meal, interrupting our conversation frequently and this eventually became rather irritating. It's not an issue we've had before when visiting the Ashoka, but we think we will leave it for a while before returning.

Good overall experience, however the initial greeter/server was very rude. He seemed stressed from us entering the restaurant although it was only 6pm and the place was relatively quiet at the time. He only spoke to us three times and all three times were abrupt and unnecessary for the circumstances. Once seated the servers downstairs were attentive and helpful, the food was delicious and price was as expected. Overall a shame that the initial welcoming was lacking and very off putting.

Food was below average, place is cramped, more than anything else the waiters were very rude. Paid £60 for a family of 4(2 kids), which I think is way too much for the quality of the food and the service we received.

One of the best meals out in Glasgow we had during our holiday.

We walked passed the restaurant on our way to another the day before and the smell made us immediately book a table for the next day.

Service was great. Food was without fault. Thank you!

A lovely restuarant close to the Kelvingrove art gallery & museum. We went early and had the very resonable pre-theatre menu. Special mention goes to the fish pakora and the momos (steamed dumplings) starters. I loved the mural spanning the whole wall. The staff were brilliant.

Open table says pre theatre to 6.30. Restaurant and their menus says 6. We arrived for 6pm booking at 6.04 to be told pre theatre not available. We explained and they eventually gave us pre theatre.

Partly my fault,I ordered Garlic chilli chicken masala.At the start of eating my meal it was good but then the garlic kicked in. There was seriously too much garlic,it was overwhelming.The portion of the meal was great and there was plenty left for a doggy bag,but I couldn’t face any more, no fear of a vampire attack. I would go back but not for that dish.

1st time visiting, and the food was outstanding however, service was poor! Felt totally rushed in and out, don’t get me wrong we came early and was fortunate enough to be seated early, but I was eating my starter and the lady came over and lifted the plate asking if I was done, when she clearly seen me eating with food in hand. And again felt rushed out.

Apart from the poor choice of table....our fault, it was brilliant.
Lamg Saag was exceptional but all the food was great. We chose a table near the door which was silly. The amount of people coming and going made us slightly nervous.
Waiting staff were attentive and friendly. Great evening of almost normal currying. Will definitely be back.
