Description: Ask any Glaswegian for directions to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, and they're sure to say "D'you know the Ashoka West End?" Immortalised as a famous culinary landmark, it sits on the corner of the longest street and shortest road in the city, and shines like a beacon and acts like a magnet to Glasgow's colossal curry eating fraternity.This is the first ever Ashoka started in 1973

Went to the Ashoka last night with my fiance after not being tere for years but still holding them in high regard. We had a wowcher voucher which included a chefs platter to start two mains with rice and a nan to share.
The chefs platter was lovely especially the samosa and the spicey and mint sauces were great for dipping.
I had the patia which was yummy and my fiance a spicey dish, he was very impressed by his dish as he loves spicey food. The rice was really nice and the nan very tasty and well cooked.
The service was attentive and freindly and we could not fault this! We were not rushed and spent 1 1/2 hours int he restaurant enjoying our meal and chatting without being herded out like in some places.
The wowcher deal was amazing value for money and i would definately be back and will be looking out for future deals.
I am surprised by the low rating reviews that have been given recently! especially the person saying the sauce contained ketchup, i think there is something wrong with their taste buds.
The Asoka has always had a good reputation in Glasgow but some Askoka's are better than others because they actually have franchises but i don't think a lot of people know this.
However the Askoka west end is great and i would highly recommend people go for dinner and try it out and not be put off by some bad reviews.

Have been here quite a few times and have tried most of the dishes, All are awesome by my favorite is Dansak Lamb, It is just the way my mom used to cook. The ambiance is good and feels home, I would certainly recommend the place for authentic Indian cuisine and to explore wide variety of Indian delicacies .Want to have a feel of Indian food in Glasgow ASHOKA is the place !!!

Amazing staff, food and affordable price. It was a 5pm deal which we had booked. We made it on time and were greeted nicely and seated. Everything went just perfect and could not ask more.
I would definitely recommend this to everyone. A must go.

We went to Ashoka west end a couple of nights ago on a 5pm deal. Dinner for two with a couple of drinks each included. We were not impressed in the slightest. Firstly there are around 6-8 tables too many in the restaurant which made it feel incredibly small and cramped. Secondly, both curries we ordered were served in white crockery (99% they had both just come from the microwave as they both had preheated films over them exactly as when you put something in the microwave!).We have been to the southside Ashoka which we would highly recommend to anyone. Raj is amazing there and we were dissappointed we didn't just go there. Will never go back to the west end Ashoka.
