This is a small but excellent Indian restaurant which has a very extensive menu. The portions are more than generous so a starter is not really necessary. We will visit again.

Just back from Ashoka and my Husband and I were really impressed. Our food was cooked to perfection and staff were very welcoming. Our waiter, Raj explained the more unusual items on the menu to us and was very helpful. Will definitely return. Mr and Mrs Wong. 😊

Excellent place, the food and portions are great and the head waiter Raj is fantastic.. always makes excellent recommendations. This place is an absolute treasure and the mid week deals are very good value.

Have been a few times before and the high standards expected were still in evidence. We booked from the 5pm website for the £9 meal deal. The food is freshly cooked and a good sized portion. In fact I was unable to finish everything and that doesn't happen very often!! The staff are friendly and attentive and the restaurant clean... More

Needed somewhere close to home so when 5pm suggested Ashoka Southside it was perfect... And at £9 for a 2 course pre-theatre was a steal! We arrived a little early but that wasn't an issue for the team. Not too busy as it was a Monday night. The starters were a good size. We chose 3 different ones so we... More

I came here for an intimate meal with my Jim. Not only was the food fantastic and the service spectacular but this was further complimented by a cosy and inviting environment topped off by Raj, who made our night. The beautiful wine gave off aromas of fresh peach and ripe gooseberry. After being seated, Raj catered to our every need.... More

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.
