I live locally and have tried every Indian restaurant in the vicinity. Most drown their food in sugar to make you think you've had a delicious meal... Ashoka don't! It's well-cooked with spices you can actually taste. Recommended.

Fri 12 Aug 2016, 21:00, 2 covers As with any first visit, I default to Chicken Dhansak / Onion Bhajia/ Pilau Rice as a safe way to compare, as every Curry house should be able to do a decent Dhansak. Sadly, on this occasion I was mistaken, as the Dhansak was tasteless, and the Onion Bhajia was even worse. Roti... More

I visited this 'restaurant' for lunch in the company of my wife, a dear friend who is wheelchair bound and his 24 hour carer. I had not seen my boyhood friend for ten years. We entered the restaurant around 1:00 pm and were immediately advised that the restaurant's kitchen closed at 2:00 pm. We ordered drinks immediately and food at... More

Went here with a friend. We had a chicken dansak, chicken pathia, pilau rice and a cheese nan. It was average and I was disappointed with the quality of the chicken. I've had better. The poppadoms and chutney were crispy and tasty. I couldn't really taste the cheese in the nan bread.

Based upon the 5 things I look for in dining out:- Menu, price, service, cleanliness & ambiance; I would say this is only average. It was let down by a diffident level of service, ok. but not warm. My selections of the Tandoori Mixed grill and another option came up slightly burnt and very dry. Yes we should have complained... More

When we go back to England, this restaurant is always top of our list for Indian food. Its been in Hove for over 20 years and still maintains an excellent quality and choice for the food. This time we did a lerge family gathering for 13 and had a great time, great food and setting

Not the best Indian meal I've had but good enough, drinks way too expensive though especially the soft drinks. Beware if you have a tastecard that there's not 2 for 1 on sides, rice or breads. Was a bit pricey for what it was and the tikka masala was very sweet and overloaded with coconut. Had better. The service was... More
