Visited here on a midweek evening. Restaurant was quite quiet. From the outset I was aware that the waiter didn't smile. He didn't seem to want to be there. Managed to ignore it enough to enjoy a good meal but I feel I can only mark my overall experience as average. Come on guys your waiting staff need to cheer... More

I've visited Ashoka many times and the food has always been very good. There's a very poor atmosphere though and the staff there are far from welcoming. It's a far better experience having the meal delivered - hence the low score.

Our family visited at Christmas time one of the only times we will all get together. The staff were very short with us, seemed to be short of time, they couldn't be bothered to put the food on the table when it came, handing the dishes directly to us to clear spaces and put down, it was strange. There was... More

It arrived on time when we ordered but that's about it. It didn't make us throw up. Very bland, vegetarian dishes not great. Tasted very greasy.

I ate there with friends last Saturday night and we were all really impressed, the food was delicious (really fresh) and the staff were lovely. I would really recommend a visit (they serve cocktails too!)

Great family run the curry house, been here for years and when you try it you can see why. Really good Balti dish !! Would highly recommend the Ashoka to anyone in the area you won't be disappointed.

I have often had a Korma takeaway from this restaurant staff are always very friendly and attentive too. They always offer me free nibbles or poppadum's while I wait.

I ordered a takeaway for 2. Polite enough staff and fairly quick but really tasteless veggie curries, daal tasted burnt, unpleasant sweet jammy stuff on garlic naan.

Pretty much a bog-standard curry shop. Curries acceptable; Bhindi Bhaji padded out with onion and tomato. Lemon rice odd, with lumps of lemon; Roti burnt and cooked long before it was served. Desserts bought in. Kulfi straight from freezer.

I went here with a group of friends recently for the first time. We ordered a number of dishes, including two Dansaks. The waiter delivered most of the dishes correctly, but the two Dansaks were something else. He lied to us telling us they were Dansak's. when we asked another waiter, he told us they were not Dansaks. they took... More
