Me and my fiancé went to asha on Saturday for our date night. I had the chilli masala an she had a korma, bit were delicious an the naan was lush! The waitor was friendly and made a few good recommendations for some starters and sides we hadn't tried before, all were lovely! Thanks for a great night Asha!

Having had a few weeks of dieting me and my partner decided it would be nice to visit the Asha again for some great food. We went on a Wednesday night and it was noteably quiet early doors, but at around 7pm the punters came flooding in.

The busy restaurant had a great buzzin atmosphere and the food was top notch, as ever. One thing I did note is that the staff seemed to have polished up on their service. It's never been terribl in my opinyon but sometimes they can come across rude. must say tho it's the same in other Indian restaurants so definaetly think it's unintentional.

Chicken bhuna on puree and sheek kebab starters were lush as ever, then the prawn balti, keema nan and egg pilau (of course) were lovely too. Plenty of food and we even took the left overs home AND we shared the main course. Thanks again Asha

There are a LOT of curry houses on Ocean Road. The curry in the Asha is very similar to most of them and is a pretty average offering. If anything, its always a little too MILD for our taste.
Not that we like hot curries but we would prefer a little more flavour and a bit of heat, otherwise you may as well stay at home and have a stew(!)
Since a refit a while back the decor is OK, but the main problem with the Asha is the staff. With one notable excption, the tall man who is kindly, they waiters and waitress are impolite to the point of rude. Perhaps they have a difficult job? Perhaps its cultural? Perhaps they're just plain snotty? Who knows. What I do know is that there is a lot of competition within 100 yards of where they are standing which means some days we just give the Asha a miss.

Me and my fiancé eat out every weekend trying different restaurants, ate here on Friday and we'll definitely be back for more! Food lush, nice atmosphere, and still had money for a few beers afterwards! Thank you

Love to visit Ocean Road for a curry , have tried many other restaurants but decided to give the Asha a try as heard good reports . Staff were very friendly and our starters were ok but was very disappointed with our main course what was supposed to be breast of chicken was dry dark and the scrappiest chicken I've ever tasted . Won't be visiting again . Was an expensive anniversary treat that we didn't enjoy .
