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

“ASHOKA SHOCK”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

On arrival we had to wait about 5 minutes. I always look on this as a good thing. I have to say that the service was excellent but sadly the food wasn't. Myself and my family all chose dishes we always choose so it was a bit of a shock to discover that the overall taste was quite bland and disappointing. We dont go in for public scenes so weren't about to make a fuss at the table. Sorry Ashoka,

“Fantastic pakora!”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

Pakora are a Scottish Indian delight and Ashoka's delivered against my memories. Great service and the food was great too. The Pre Theatre deal between 5pm and 7pm was popular and with good reason as the Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Bhuna both lived up to expectation. A little dish with a complimentary appetiser was an unexpected gesture and all in all the whole experience was a very good one. Is it the best Indian restaurant in Glasgow - I don't know but it must be up there as surely one of the best!

“Awesome!”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

My husband and I were hooked by the delicious smell that came out of the restaurant. You can smell their food more than half a block away! The service is absolutely great and the food is delicious! We definitely recommend it!

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

We had previously been to Ashoka West End on a voucher deal and the food and service were first class. We decided to return as we had a notion for a curry. We had not booked and the restaurant was quite full but they managed to find us a table.The young female waitress offered a pre-theatre dinner and explained the dishes. At £10.95 it was excellent value, although the cost of a la carte food is not expensive either. It was one of the best meals we have had and will return in the near future.
