Excellent

Flavoursome, great variety and delicious specials. Probably one of the tastiest Indian restaurants I've been to. Staff were a little robotic but generally helpful and polite. Wish the Indian restaurants near my home were as good.

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.

The waiter was very friendly when we arrived and helped us with the toddler bringing him a poppadom We all ordered different dishes of different strengths and were lovely. They even put mine in foil trays to take home as I could not eat it all, good portion size. overall a lovely Indian meal and I would certainly go back.

Three generations of our family tonight enjoyed a fantastic meal at Light of Asia. Our little one was catered for with simple children's food. One member of the party with Gluten intolerance was equally catered for with ease. The whole experience was top drawer. No oily food on the plates, and service was impeccable. Highly recommend, and suggest you try... More

Always have a meal here with my daughter now when I collect or take her to the University. Lovely selection of starters and mains. Especially like the chicken tikka masala. Cobra beer, and very good service. What more could you want?

Best Indian restaurant I've ever been to, and after going for a few years I can honestly say they do the best curries. I've tried most of the menu now and the quality is a different level to any Indian close to Aberystwyth. The restaurant is brilliant and has a relaxed atmosphere with its music and lighting.

We LOVE this place! The food is just so beautifully cooked and the staff always make fantastic recommendations, I've tried a new dish every time we go and have never been disappointed. Tonight we've gone for my husbands birthday and everything was beyond perfect as usual. We've taken visiting friends, family and even had our engagement party here 4 years... More
