Visited Asha after the Radhuni lost our booking. Never been before and went for the set menu. Service was efficient, starters were tasty and well prepared, mains tikka massala and rogan josh were all delicious. Jalfrezi could have done with being a touch hotter in spice but was still very enjoyable. All in all well worth a visit. £51 for... More

The starters and main course were ok but the chappatti seemed undercooked and slightly doughy, we did mention this to the waiter who said that is how they should be cooked but not to my previous experience. He did offer to replace them with naan bread.

My family have been happy and loyal customers to the Asia Balti house for the past 20 years and we enjoy both going into the restaurant for their tasty dishes as well as ordering takeaways from them. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the staff are always very friendly. At our last visit, the owner personally greeted us and all... More

For a family that loves indian cuisines, ordinary Indian food is never going to impress us. However, Asha Balti House did. Even more impressive was that this was our first visit and we had to chose from a very extensive list. Either the recommendations somehow suited us or the chefs are simply incredible. Our suspicion is it is a bit... More

Without a booking, the Asha staff found a space for us on a busy day. They were very friendly and the food was delicious. Absolutely no reason to give them anything less than the full five stars.

We were in the area at a local event and, on the evening, we called into Asha, having pre-booked a table. It's been a good long while since I last went to Asha, and I'm pleased to say that nothing has changed. The venue is classy without being overbearing, and most of all, the food is still spectacular. Now, I... More
