The food is very good and the restaurant very clean and well presented. The staff are always cheerful but we were in for 1 hour 40 minutes from start to finish. Way too long between courses. OK for night time but not for a lunch menu.

Came here with 8 other family members for a birthday meal. Food was very tasty. Service was good. The mixed starter of tikka chicken, onion baji and lamb was delicious. Tried a few different mains. The only disappointment was the mint lamb dish, the sauce was yummy but the meat was tough. Would definitely come back, nicest Indian food I've... More

Top class food. We had the special Sunday menu which is fantastic value. We had biryani and a korma. Both were top class and large potions for the price. Starters were lovely and a good selection for a set menu. Great service and lovely atmosphere .highly recommended!

Been here several times and it's always beautiful. Very tasty food and nice size portions. Can be a little on the pricey side compared to other Indian restaurants BUT I am a big believer of 'you get what you pay for' and this place is lovely!

This is my second visit to Ashoka, the food is delicious so fresh and tasty authentic Indian food, the portion sizes are good I lost a star due to price I thought it was slightly on the expensive side and they don't do any special nights I think if they did they would be booming, also they don't do home...
