Absolutely fabulous, from start to finish. Lady who served us was very welcoming from the minute we walked in, we ate from the pre theatre menu which had a great choice & the portion sizes were great. Thoroughly enjoyed & will defo return.

We have been ordering from this restaurant for years and it has consistently slipped its standards. The one that prompted me to write this was a recent telephone order in which they refused to make small changes asked for by members of out party. This...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.
