Lovely staff and food was nice, the upstairs seating area feels like you are dining in a takeaway with all the just eat orders running about and decor was not welcoming or appealing. Service was great staff were very attentive. Get a nicer setting and this will be a much nicer restaurant than it currently is.

Poor choices from a basic menu. No king prawn dishes included in the menu only chicken options. No traditional turkey dinner option. No crackers, hats or decorations. Seated in a room that was cold cos the heater was broken!
Poor value for money at £35.95 per head this 3 course meal had very little to offer! Very disappointed on Christmas Day

Food was outstanding, only issue was we asked for a mixed grill with no prawns and came with prawns but wasn’t too much of a big deal. Had the South Indian chilli chicken and chilli garlic rice, was really really nice, service was great the garlic naan was so fresh! Will be returning very soon!

Been here several times. The food is always excellent, as is the service.

Only problem for me, is that on our last two visits, the coffee machine wasn't working. Other than that, a great night's dining.

Booked a table but nothing ready as if just came off the street given a table as if sitting in the kitchen. Nobody in charge and looked as if the restaurant was second to the take away service. Poor dinning experience which was once well run just a pity

Food was very good though not exceptional as it always is. The restaurant was very busy which may have had to do with this. Ambience was lovely; staff were attentive and friendly though we did receive an incorrect starter amidst the chaos of a Saturday night.

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!
