I recently went to the light of Asia for a meal with some friends. We arrived to only find polish staff which we thought was odd, as none of them could explain any thing on the menu properly! Surely the least they could do was learn the menu! They were also more interested in speaking polish by the bar loudly... More

Thank you for your feedback and please accept my apologies for your unfortunate experience in the light of Asia. Please know that I've reprimanded waitresses for speaking in polish in front of the customers, which isn't appropriate while on duty. Nevertheless, I am the owner of the restaurant and I can confirm that my family are from Bangladesh and came... More

We were looking forward to a Saturday night in with a takeaway. Unfortunately, when it arrived it was bland, lukewarm, overpriced and disappointing.

As the title says, we (party of 6) were welcomed in by friendly staff and were promptly served with tasty food. None of us had a complaint regarding the quality or amount of food and the price was reasonable for the service we received and pleasant surroundings that we dined in. The jovial Indian waiter with the very Welsh accent... More

I returned here in June for the first time in about a decade. The place is still very much like I remember, but maybe with a fresh lick of paint since then. But who cares about the decor, you're here for the food and do you know what? The food is great. Superb even. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed... More

This was our second visit to Light of Asia, having visited more than a year ago....and our meal was just as memorable as before. We were seated quickly and the extensive menu made choosing what to have quite time-consuming. Our choices were made and the dishes that arrived were well-presented and looked and tasted wonderful. We started with Poppadoms with... More

This was the first time I had been to this restaurant after living in Aber for nearly two years- and I wish I had tried this place out sooner! The waiter who took our orders was attentive, polite and friendly and our food was served to us within ten minutes of ordering. I was very impressed with my meal- I... More
