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.

Reviewed February 22, 2013

Have been to the ashoka on many occasions and have had excellent meals on all of these visits, The staff are all very friendly especially Shanaz who always has a sunny disposition and makes you feel very welcome every time we visit. The food is excellent and the menu has a very good range of food which is cooked to a high mouth watering standard.Will continue to go back time and time again

“Lovely ambience and superb food”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

My partner and myself stopped using this restaurant a few years ago as we felt it was going downhill and the food was not very good. We decided a few months ago to see if it had got any better and wow what a delightful surprise!! The welcoming staff who were also so helpful with the menu choices made our visit worth while.
We returned on Sat and nothing has changed at all thankfully!! Raj, Stevie and Sarah were all excellent and the food is amazing with a wonderful relaxing ambience, my partner and I will certainly be regulars either sitting in or takeaway. Keep up the good work!!!

“Friendly staff and good atmosphere.”

We were very impressed with the friendly welcome, they always manage to find us a table if we have't booked. Food is always excellent and Raj's attention to detail is spot on.

“Consistently fabulous Indian Cuisine!”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

I have visited this little retaurant many times over the years since it first opened years ago but re-discovered it about a year ago. The food was excellent that night and has been the same each time since. We went on Valentines night & used a Groupon voucher which was great value. Were delighted to find some new dishes on the menu. My partner tried the new Salmon Tikka starter which was delicious & I had the mixed pakora which was also perfect. He then had the Bombay Bhakri which is a really tasty lamb dish. I couldn't resist my usual dish of
Balti Butter Masala but had Raj been serving us I might have opted for one of the new mains. He has a great knowledge of the menu and is always really friendly & willing to explain the flavours of the dishes on offer. We will be back!
