We were told we had to eat at Asha's. We got to PG on Tuesday, the only day Asha's is closed so Wednesday we were more than ready to judge the food for ourselves. The food Was AMAZING and the prices the best. The whole snapper was great and my kids loved the fish fingers so much so that they... More

Asha's Culture Kitchen is the best place to eat seafood in Punta Gorda hands down. Actually I've eaten here on 5 different occasions and every meal I've ordered here was amazing. This is the place to eat when visiting Punta Gorda. Its not the easiest to get to but trust me it's worth it. You might even get lucky and... More

Asha's was less than a block from where we were staying and was highly recommended. Don't let the appearance deceive you, the food is excellent and well worth the cost. Generous portions and friendly staff made for a pleasant experience ... twice! We like it so much the first night we went back the second night to enjoy it again... More

I didn't know what to expect from this little shack on stilts over the ocean but it was a great experience. The cook came out and discussed the dishes with us, made recommendations, even suggesting that certain dishes weren't so good that evening. The food was excellent.

Asha's Kitchen serves the best fish we had during our Belize travel. The menu is a big billboard where you choose the type of fish you like, the preparation style and the different side dishes. I had fried lionfish with salad and white rice. My boyfriend chose the fried barracuda with rice and beans and coleslaw (each meal 25 BZD).... More

Nice setting and great folks. I thought it was a bit too pricey but was really glad to have tried their lionfish.

The food was delicious and plentiful for the price. We loved that they served lionfish. The view right on the waterfront was wonderful.

Yes, a true Belizean restaurant built on the water in sleepy Punta Gorda. Just blocks from Coral House and Blue Belize. The owner is the real deal and a helluva chef with Belizean ingredients. He's won a number of the top chef competitions in Placencia against the big hotel guys...quite the feat. Fresh seafood comes out of the tiny kitchen... More

While in PG for about a month, we visited Asha's at least 4 or 5 times. The food is incredible. Fresh caught fish with a choice of 2 sides from a plentiful list. The price is reasonable. They also serve delicious fresh fruit juices and cocktails. Often there is live music. The tiny shack sits over the water and has... More
