“Cooked with a lot of looove!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Our group of 17 ate at Asha's a couple of weeks ago whilst touring and we had choices from an excellent buffet of hot dishes plus fresh Lime Juice or Watermelon Juice. It was a rainy, hot evening and the location plus breeze from the sea below added to the atmosphere as did the quirky decor ( cheese grater lamps). The food was wonderful particularly the creamy shrimp dish and the coconut rice the best I've tasted in Belize. When I asked what was in it -the reply- 'a lot of looove!' and it showed! Excellent, tasty food - delicious chocolate banana cake and the cocktail, Crystal Skull was - ummmm! Pat

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

A little touristy but good food and great location. We snagged a table in the back by a window and enjoyed the wonderful evening breeze off the water. Drinks are cold, food is good.

“Dis da Belize”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I was initially surprised when I overheard someone recommend to another traveler Asha's after we had just been recommended it by another person. When we got there it was packed and we were quite disappointed when the lady at the counter said she wouldn't be seating anyone else. Just as we were about to leave one of the guys working came over and told us if we could wait just a few minutes he would make sure we were seated. Come to find out it was Asha! Not only were we seated but the food was amazing and very reasonable. Combine this with the water as the restaurant sits just in the Carib Sea and the back drop of live Garifuna drums, song and a bit of dance and you have exactly what you came to Belize for...Dis da Belize! If ever in PG Asha's is a MUST...my advice is to call ahead if you can.

“We loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Our university group ate here twice and we all loved the breeze and view outside! The food was so good as well, this was our favorite of the week. Saturday nights are VERY crowded. Highly advise a reservation :) Thanks for the cute drum souveniers too!

“You MUST eat here ... it's sooo goood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We ate at Asha's several times, and it was great food at a very reasonable price every time. It was the only "on the water" restaurant/bar, and we met many great people there.
