Well what can you say we popped in for a Saturday lunchtime with the family and we were the only ones in the restaurant First class service was delivered in a timeless Indian style surrounding where the food does the talking rather than being in fancy tables and contemporary lighting like so many others Standard menu which was very well...

My wife and I ate at Ashoka in Hove with some intrepidation as since moving to Hove we hD had some bad Indian meals. We should not have been concerned, the Dodd at Ashoka was great, an extremely extensive menu and the setting inside the restaurant is really nice, very tastefully decorated and spacious. At the end of the starters... More

Most unwelcoming and unfriendly staff. A very quiet empty restaurant were not at all interested in our custom. This is very surprising as they ste situated in a very competitive area for good indian restaursnts.Waiter clearly didn't want to be there as he took our order. Leaning on the table behind us and using a menu to rest on !!... More

Visited on a rainy Tuesday night. Was very quiet but midweek you kind of expect that. We had a very warm welcome, very friendly attentive waiting staff. Ordered starter for two (there were two of us, I am not that greedy). Chicken Satkora for me and Vindaloo for my colleague. Starter was superb. Perfectly cooked and perfectly spiced. I only... More

Very nice decor and a warm welcome. Food was pleasant but not the most tasty that i've experienced. Visited midweek and it was very quiet. Service was good, i would visit again but wouldn't be my first choice

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
