I hadn't used the Ashoka Southside for a number of years but decided to order a takeaway. Karahi Bhoona Chicken Breast, Fried Rice and Nan. All awful. Chicken was overcooked ( I actually couldn't eat a piece). Certainly wasn't cooked in a karahi dish. Pilau...More

Save your money just get a take away or use 5pm deals sitting in restaurant is overpriced. Waiting staff are less than happy to work there and service is shocking!

As curry enthusiasts we used to use the Ashoka Southside regularly, but found it was lagging behind other local curry houses like the Turban, Alishan and the Anarkali, and so hadn't used it for months. We decided to give it another try and can safely...More

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.
