Friends of ours discovered this place awhile back and suggested we go with 2 other couples. My husband is not adventureous in dining, so I was waiting for him to not like it and look for a safe selection. Imagine my surprise when he started with the grape leaves stuffed with lentils and said it was good! What followed was... More

I ordered the beef wrap, and while it was hamburger meat (I mistakenly thought it would be sliced beef), the taste was delicious. I would go again to try the lamb, which was recommended. Typically I do not like lamb, but the proprietor highly recommended it. I wanted to try the Baklava, but it was $6.50 and I was full... More

Hands down, the best Persian I have had! I have had good Persian in Philadelphia and NYC, this was exceptional. The Baklava is exceptional, not sloppy gooey like most. A must try!

In mid-April four of us ate in Asha after being told by a number of people how good the restaurant was. We were not let down. We each had a different dinner after sharing stuffed grape leaves to begin. "Just like I had years ago in Turkey" was the first comment. She ordered the mixed plate dinner and was very... More

As often happens, we heard about Asha Grill via word of mouth. "Have you heard about this great little....?" We kept hearing about this small, family run eaterie on Stickney Point road, with super Persian food, and thought we'd try it out. We've been there twice, brought others with us, and have sent others still to sample the wares of... More

Because we liked the food, we went twice. The ambience in a strip mall facing a parking lot was unprepossessing. The chicken in pomegranate and walnut sauce was tasty but thin, and the invasive waitress stunned us twice. Her personal stories and dirty jokes were offensive. This time, she overcharged for the wine.

On a friend's recommendation, my husband and I visited the Asha Grill and were delighted we did. I love Middle Eastern food and this did not disappoint. In addition to the expected kabobs, flavorful, tender and beautifully grilled, there were intriguing Persian dishes for which we'll certainly return. This is a wonderful addition to Sarasota's array of restaurants.

An authentic Persian restaurant in a nondescript shopping strip - The owner makes and serves most of the dishes. The kabobs are delicious. Four of us dined here recently and had a great experience. If you're not familiar with Persian food he will explain each dish in detail. You can try something unusual or stick with the kabobs if you... More
