Three of us had a takeaway. Fish Pakora starters were ok, vegetable pakora very dry and tasteless, chicken pakora was dry. Nan bread was thin, dry and tasteless. Main dishes were far, far too hot and spicy. I ordered a creamy lamb jalfrezi, expecting this to be mild, since there was a spicy option. I had to leave most of... More

We just love this place. We visit it every time we return to visit my mother in law in Bearsden!!! With 30 per cent off Tuesday's and Wednesday's, this is a steal! Well prepared, beautifully presented, decent portions, great staff and fairly priced food and drinks. No reason not to return, as in next Tuesday???

I have travelled in India and eaten Indian for all over the world and this restaurant should consider going back to basics instead of turning out poor food at expensive prices.. It all looked the same the curry and the dhal lentils were a huge disappointment. I will never be tempted to eat there again and would recommend others do... More

I had a really bad experience where the acting manager hung up on me when I was trying to order my food over the phone. I simply asked what the meal deal included and was about to place my order when the abrupt and rude man just hung up on me and I had to call again. When picking up... More

Visited last night for an early Sunday dinner. Have been here a couple of times and last night was by far the best so far. Think they might have had a change of chef as last nights food was markedly better than the previous visit, it was always good but we felt on previous visits the sauces were a bit... More

Always enjoy our dinner at Ashoka Bearsden. Had our usual starters tonight mixed pakora and chicken poori which were tasty as always. Our waiter Raj was very friendly and enthusiastic about the food. He asked what we liked and gave us recommendations. I picked one of his choices which was nice and good to try something different. I enjoyed it... More

Description
Opting for an avant garde approach in the kitchen and keeping the ambience stylish and contemporary, if a bit ritzy, Ashoka Bearsden in Kirk Road offers curry lovers a sanctuary in which they can cultivate their passion. For special occasions, the Harlequin Suite provides the space and privacy to celebrate with panache. Dinner at Ashoka Bearsden can open with chicken breast, haggis or mushroom pakora, spicy chicken wings or crispy mixed vegetable tempura. The menu's connoisseur's choice serves up main course options of diced lamb Bombay style, chicken with red peppers, spinach and garam masala, marinated chicken with tomato and black pepper and Himalayan hot pot with lamb or chicken. There's also south Indian garlic chilli chicken bursting with hot and spicy flavours. Sundries of poppadoms, spiced onions, mango pickle and raita keep company along with sides of pilau rice and naan bread.
