Nice variety of food, not the best Indian I've ever had but very satisfying and filling. The staff was friendly and mindful and the meal was good value for money. Definitely worth a try!

Good service and very good food. We all ordered different meals and tasted from each other - all tasted very well and we all agreed on that.

Dropped in for an early-evening meal on a Saturday evening and was very pleasantly surprised. My red-snapper dish was delicious. In fact, the entire meal was great and very reasonably priced. Never eaten here before but I will certainly return.

Food is really nice with a good selection of different dishes . A really nice clean environment with helpful staff who are ready to explain what is in the dishes to help you choose the right one for you . Would definitely visit again and would recommend advanced booking.

The curries are nice, the second day. However I have noticed they are inedible, until they sit for a long period of time, allowing for all the grease to drain out. Its sad, because the food is nice, if you are able to remove all the grease, However there is always so much that you littlerally have to let it... More

We again visited this excellent restaurant for you 48th Anniversary - where else would we go where we would enjoy such good food served by such helpful, friendly staff.? We both chose from the specials list last night My husband thoroughly enjoyed the King Prawn Saffron & myself the Dhaka King Prawn. Seem to be slowly working my way through... More

Booked into the Light of Asia for a family meal when I popped 'home' to visit my parents. Very friendly personal service and attentive staff. The food was superb, I was curious and decided to go for the Mozarella chicken curry having never neard of such a combination before but it certainly worked. Lovely.

Went for a meal here with my girlfriend and her student brother. Found the staff robotic and using a walkie talkie to communicate internally made it even more so- lose the walkie talkies. Food was good, decor ok, toilets upstairs and wheelchair usage might be an issue. Just an ok review.

We called in yesterday at 5:30pm, lovely food, friendly people, good service. We were on holiday and have a local curry house that we have been going to for the past 8 years so this one had a lot to live up to, and it did! Plenty of chicken, the madras sauce wasn't too hot, rice was good and so... More
