We are familiar with Indian food, so this is not just a mindless slag-off. We ordered 5 dishes and the food was so horrible that we ate only two of them. The flavours were pretty horrible, and nothing was spicy. It was a totally disappointing waste of an evening and £25. The service was reasonably efficient, and when we answered... More

Food quality and ambience was good. Staff was helpful. Nothing wrong really, just that I felt it was a bit expensive.

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.
