We stayed in Borth near to Aberystwyth and the 3 bar maids at the local pub all individually recommended this restaurant. The staff were warm, funny and welcoming especially Meritza who was lovely (even taking a lovely selfie of her with us in the background :) ). The food was really nice and reasonable - our total bill with drinks... More

Had a takeaway from here never used before as on holiday, very greasy and runny! No diffetence between curries madras and masalla?? Sorry but if you want a proper curry you cant beat birmingham.

Ate here on a Sunday evening and without doubt the most beautifully cooked and tasty Karahi Methi Ghosht I've ever tasted - we live in the Midlands so we have plenty to compare with. Tastefully decorated, great staff (who are to be commended for their well- mannered , attentive approach). Will visit again!

Living near Wolverhampton we are spoilt for choice in terms of Indian restaurants. We were therefore not expecting anything special when visiting Light of Asia in Aberystwyth. However we were pleasantly surprised. All 6 meals were excellent and the staff were superb; very friendly with a hint of banter. As we visit Borth several times a year we will no... More

This my preferred place for Indian food in town. Great range of dishes, and always nice service. Gets busy so definitely book ahead if you're making special plans, but easy enough to just stop by too.

Ordered takeaway for us, 10 people, so nice size order. Menu offered good selection. We had a variety of starters and main courses. A varied selection of flavours and 'heat'. Was really impressed with the meal, portion size and quality. Having been here for years, it was a good decision to return. A week later, needed another 'fix'. This time... More

The starters came out and all looked lovely but my was it salty and I only had chicken chaat. It was tasty but after a couple of mouthfuls it was like the chicken had just been pulled from the sea. We then had our mains and all had different dishes, once again they were very salty. My wife complained to... More

I had travelled from Northampton to see some friends who have just moved to the area. We have a rule where if we're asked a question about where to eat/what to do etc we have to answer it, no backesses. Well I had said to go to a different restaurant (can't recall the name) but I was over ruled and... More
