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.

“5pm Excellence”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

This is our 3rd visit to the restaurant and we would recommend it to everyone not only for the food but also the warm welcome from the staff especially Raj. We have been getting the 5pm deal and are amazed at the variety and choices on the menu. Best restaurant in southside.

“Terrific curry, great service”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We live locally and eat regularly in the Ashoka. The food knocks spots off any other Indian restaurant on the southside of Glasgow. It offers a terrific menu and great service. A great meal every time.

“Wonderful staff”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Apart from the superb food I must commend the staff for the care and attention they show us every time we visit.
Nothing is too much trouble and we are always welcomed so warmly.
Shanaz knows the wine we like and advises on the menu and Raj is so thoughtful and willing to spend time even thoughhe has other things to do.
In fact recently ,we were the last to leave and Raj never hurried us.
We paid the bill and he sat with us asking how our family was keeping.
In a very busy world,this restaurant and its staff are unique.
