Absolutely diabolical customer service, attended tonight with a friend. Quickly seated. Offered drinks as soon as we sat but said could we have few minutes (which is preference). Ordered drinks and food. Starters arrived quickly literally followed by them taking starter plates in to them pushing mains out on trolley. Extremely rushed but hey ho I was hungry and again...

Out with friends & came across this restaurant by accident. We had poppadoms, starters, mains & deserts. My starter (pictured) was mussels in a coconut broth which was delicious. Onion bahjis and koftas were also ordered. Mains included Baltis, biriyanis and I had the tandoori trout which was great. Standard ice creams for desert. Service was fast & professional. Would...

What can I say? My husband and I visited the Asha last night with 2 friends to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I ordered Onion Bahji for a starter - it was cold and under-cooked. Then for the main course I ordered Chicken Shashlik, which was not served sizzling on a griddle as I would have expected and when I tasted... More

We enjoyed another lovely meal at this restaurant on Friday night. The food was as usual excellent, and the staff were all very friendly providing a good service. This Indian restaurant will continue to be our favourite .

Visited this restaurant ordered a draught carling only to find that familiar soapy taste from dirty lines and the beer was warm probably a major contributing factor. Ordered a mild, medium and hot dish and they all came out mild. I suspect the returned pint was recycled to another customer.
