Flavoursome curry

We visited on a Sunday and although we hadn't booked we were given a table for six people after a short weight. The food was of a very high standard and very tasty and reasonably priced. They did make an error with one dish which was the Special Mossala, this failed to include the mince meat... read more

Beware when ordering a takeaway for delivery in Aberystwyth. We did recently to our dismay. Given a delivery time of 40 mins it actually arrived by taxi after 1hr 30mins!! Taxi driver unable to find address even with correct post code. Food good but cool! No contact from the restaurant by phone. Second time - never again.

A restaurant should be judged on the standard of its food and on the night we dined here, it was very good, I never thought I would comment about over-attentive staff but our dining experience was quite surreal. The waiters, who are polite and friendly, constantly patrol up and down the walkways, with earpieces attached, like the are on a... More

A really nice Indian restaurant with beautiful food,but very expensive. A meal for 4 of us was £75 considering we shared 2 rices and 3 of us had small cokes for drink.great food overpriced.

Turned up at 8.30 on a Saturday night without booking. The only table was right by the door which was a bit annoying as people were back and forth all evening for take away. We both had starters and mains and shared a rice - which was plenty. The Pinot Grigio was lovely and the service was great. Would recommend... More

This place used to be the best curry house in aber ( albeit one of few) I booked a table for late evening on a Friday. There was a table of two by the window and the waiter seated us right by them!!! The staff walk around with Madonna style headsets on! I guess it's for when they are busy... More

I spend a wek fishing near Aberystwyth each June, and eat Indian food at least once during that time. I have had some good food at The Light of Asia, but this year was disappointed. The food was very greasy and a bit bland and ordinary. Think they may have chaged chef. Next year I will try one of the... More

As always I find I can write a first class review/ recommendation after another visit to the best Indian restaurant around. Always a warm welcome both on the phone when booking a table & on arrival at the restaurant. The staff are all lovely. Friendly, courteous & efficient & the meals as always, excellent. We always find we can eat... More

Once again a brilliant evening from the hospitality & service to the super food they serve. Who'd have thought Mozarella and curry would go so well together, absolutely brilliant.
