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.

“Friendly Staff and Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

We only live a few hundred yards from the restaurant which provides a really warm welcome. The staff are very attentive and cannot do enough for you. My favourite Indian Dish was not on the menu but that was no problem as the chef prepared it for me and it was delicious. A really friendly local place with no need to travel into town as it has now become our favourite Indian Restaurant which is down to the great food,service and staff.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

We went to the Ashoka for our friends 30th birthday meal so there was a large group of us. Sometimes, with a large group, everybody's drinks and meals arrive at different times but the staff were very efficient and timed our meals to perfection. The food was great, no complaints from anybody in the group.

We were made to feel very welcome and would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Best Indian food in Glasgow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Have eaten in Indian restaurants all over the world and rate this one of the best,we have frequented this restaurant since it opened many years ago and have seen the quality go up and down as the owners have changed,however since the new owner took over some months ago we have never known such excellent consistency,the sauces are unique the food melts in your mouth,the deals are excellent,Raj and Sarah are the best in the business always attentive and always happy to see you with lots of laughter combined with their excellent service as part of the experience for every customer.In fact we always leave looking forward to the next visit.

“Raj gave fantastic service with fantastic food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We had a voucher which didn't allow us to have the combo starter for two. Raj organised it so we could have them. They were delicious. He allowed us a bit of time to rest between our starters and main courses. We would definitely recommend the Ashoka south side to everyone and hopefully Raj will be on duty and you will be well looked after.
