Great Indian food in the surf city

If you are tired of pizza, burgers and general pub grub I can recommend the Ashiana in Manly; from the outside it does not look the most inviting, but the food is authentic Indian, and does not disappoint.

Went to this restaurant with my partner on a recent trip to Manly. We're vegan/vegetarian so Indian is often a good standby & with the dearth of vegan/vegetarian (open at night) in Manly this looked to be a good reasonably priced option. Right we were! Had the mixed vegetarian option as an entree, ok but nothing fantastic. Pundi Chana (chickpeas... More

A spur of the moment decision led me and a work colleague to this delightful restaurant in Manly. Very good food - my Rogan Josh was very tasty and tender enough to cut with a fork. I will return here. Only complaint - either the air-conditioning was broken or not switched on. It was very hard to enjoy a nice... More

First impressions-very dated, basic interior. However, service was very good and we were soon seated and order taken. Started with some tasty samosas and then chosen curries served with Kashmiri rice which was very also tasty. Everything including garlic naan bread and drinks came to just $80. Enjoyable meal -don't let dated interior put you off.

Stopped in for a quick dinner, but was totally disappointed. The food was bland, even the pompadoms were a disappointment. Skip this one and look for something better.

Midweek business meal. Interior is a little dated but who cares, the food was very good. Dhal and saag aloo with garlic naan. Service was great, food came over piping hot after about fifteen minutes and was really enjoyable. I'd certainly return for a few more vegetarian items on their extensive menu.

We went there as a group of 7. Either they were too rushed to take the order or no one will look at the table for next 15min! Incorrect order taken, changed the type of meat we wanted in one if the dish. Apology offered nothing else. Service was ok. Food quality, below average. Will I eat here again? No.

Have been here twice only because there is no other Indian option around 2 km radius. The taste was not bad, but not worth of any significance. The lack of management in handling the service department (right from top management) is frustrating. Will never go there again.
