Description: Curry devotees have been worshipping at the temple of Ashoka since the 80s. This, the chain���s Glasgow South Side branch, was created to appease folk from south of the river who loved the brand but hated the travel. Boasting an interior with a Last Days of the Raj meets style bar look, Ashoka has the kind of atmosphere which appeals more to bhuna babes than the middle aged ���lads��� on a rampage who frequent your average curry house. The interior may be pared down but the menu is packed with Indian favourites as well as house specialities, leaving even decisive diners with a difficult decision to make.

Our family has been regular customers of the Ashoka Southside for many years and the food has always been excellent. It is always freshly made and of the highest quality. We have tried other Indian Restaurants but they are never as good as the quality you will receive at this one. The staff are very welcoming and pleasant and the service is always second to none. Its a small restaurant with a big reputation and comes highly recommended for any occasion! We has our son's 18th and our daughter's 16th birthday dinner at Ashoka and found it good value for money and a great atmosphere.

Our first ever visit to Ashoka southside-fantastic! By far the best Indian food we have ever tasted, and we have sampled Indian food in some of the best restaurants in the UK including the curry capitals of Bradford and Leicester. Great bijou atmosphere. Also we have been to Ashoka restaurants all over the Glasgow area and this is the best by miles.Friendly, attentive staff - great to meet you Raj. We will certainly make this our regular curry house.

The Ashoka Southside provides high quality food at reasonable prices. The food is invariably delicious and the service is also very good. The staff are all first class and go the extra mile to ensure all guests are well looked after, without being too intrusive!
Good bar choices and decent wine selection.
All in all highly recommended
