We eat here on our regular trips to aberystwyth. It is always busy and the service is average......food is normally excellent! On this visit we waited a long time and when the food arrived it wasn't up to the normal standard. 3 chicken dishes were ordered and the meat seemed processed. A little pricey too. We'll be back in aberystwyth... More

The restaurant managed to squeeze us in on a Friday evening, all the table were full when we arrived. Staff looked after us but maybe a little too much as we were asked 3 times by 3 different waiters if main course was okay! Not that this is a complaint as food was delicious. Lots of flavour and enjoyed all... More

Staying in Aberystwyth overnight, and decided to try the restaurant based on good reviews. Lovely meal (we eat a lot of Indian food), well presented and great service. Good value too.

A very warm welcome awaits you at this wonderful Indian restaurant. The main man Mush and his very attentive team of staff (the bubbly Emily for one) provide a very friendly welcome. The menu is diverse, creative and mouth watering accompanied by an excellent drinks menu. Living in Burry Port, I've been working in Aberystwyth for the past 9 months... More

Firstly the food is great. If you like hot and spicy (like i do) go for the Bombay chicken Jalfrezi. Made with Naga chillies this is definitely one for the brave. The staff here are very attentive and chatty especially Mush and Emily. I travel up from Port Talbot each week to work in Aberystwyth and this has been our... More

We had a take away from Light of Asia, the food was great, they offer a big choice of currys and other dishes. Especially for take away the prices are very reasonable and portions quite big. The service is very nice and accommodating. I would definitely recommend.

I had the Karahi Methi Ghust, was a brilliant dish, as recommended by waiter Reuben. This was very flavoursome and tasty. The service was excellent too.

Visiting for first time as Trip Advisor rated more highly than others. Ambience : loud and loutish with bright bright lights.... So.... food seemed ... ok... Service was .... enthusiastic by the student waiting team. Food arrived promptly without a hitch and as I say it was ok. Expensive though for what it was. To be honest, there are cheaper... More

I called for a takaway on the spur of the moment as I fancied a change from my usual curry haunt in town. They have just been refurbished apparently - it was about 50% full when I arrived. Ordered one massala and one madras based dish, and beetled home. On opening the cartons, I must admit to being very disappointed.... More

I have eaten in the Light of Asia some years ago. It was good then but increasingly I order a Takeaway and eat it over-looking South Beach from an upstairs bay window. The food is well-prepared and authentic (3 years living in the Middle East and Asia) and properly packaged. They meet their ready-by timings as well so only time... More
