Just had another takeaway meal, having had many over the years and many an eat in experience there. Consistency is very important when you look for a local restaurant, and this one has that quality. Fantastic food, spices and tastes that surpass the best Indian restaurants i have been in in Birmingham. Dupiazza and dansak, as well as Kema nan... More

We stumbled apon this restaurant by accident on a visit to Aberystwyth, really lovely food at very reasonable prices, the onion bhaji were nice and little the best I have ever tasted, only down side my husband did not like the lager.

Go to this Indian restaurant. The menu is different (you don't see Chittagong Noodles in many Indians). The service is relaxed, but most important the food tastes great. It comes in large portions, so don't over order like we did.

I do not recall ever being disappointed by a visit to The Light of Asia, Nahar is a brilliant host and his staff always try there best to look after you even if the restaurant is full to the rafters! If you ever get Ash trust his recommendations! Lamb Bhuna Madras & Lamb Tikka Mushroom balti are amazing! Thank you... More

We received excellent service from waiting staff and were made to feel most welcome. The food arrived quickly and was delicious. We couldn't believe how reasonable the bill was when it arrived.

Its only a small venue and the decor is modern and very pleasant, service is friendly and extremely efficient. The food is excellent and the standard of hygene is very... More

We visited (two couples) this lovely restaurant last Saturday 26th July! It was packed to the rafters which is always a good sign! I ordered a chicken madras Balti. The chicken was lovely and tender! We all ordered starters too which were lovely too! The only negative point is that we found the drinks to be a little expensive though... More

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.
