My family have been visiting this establishment for over 24 years. It was a regular lunch spot for my grandparents, and the scene of my parents first date. The same staff who served my parents then still serve today, and are as friendly as ever.
The restaurant is often not very busy. In fact, we were the only people there for lunch on this Easter Sunday. This is probably because there are a large number of other highly rated Indian restaurants on the same street with flashy signage and modern interiors. The Asia is rather dated in comparison, but please don't let that put you off. You notice there is a strange looking map on the ceiling and this is in fact supposed to be Bangladesh (the staff are indeed Bangladeshi as a previous reviewer stated), but is apparently oddly shaped due to the fact that by now it is rather ancient!
The food is as good as any other Indian I have tasted, and extremely good value. There is a quite hefty 15% discount if you order take-away. They have a very large selection to choose from and are happy to give recommendations. We were given a shot of Irish cream liquor and mint chocolates at the end of our meal.
I have never had a bad experience here and I hope that my family and its future generations continue to visit, it's only a shame they are overshadowed by other restaurants in the vicinity. The Asia is a real gem, so give it a shot if you're nearby.
