Fix the naan! For several months now the naan bread has been mediocre at best. For me, the quality of naan bread served is a litmus test indicator for the quality overall in an Indian restaurant. I can't make good naan at home, as I...More

We have eaten in this restaurant many times and it is always excellent. In keeping with the Ashoka brand it has a good menu, not overly expensive with good staff and a nice atmosphere. Always worth a visit.

Eaten at the Ashoka many times. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food is traditional Indian and very enjoyable. Staff are very helpful and try to accommodate special diet needs.

The food was really not good. It was not a proper curry. The staff was slow and spoke a very bad scottish (or what ever it was). A very poor experience I hope I will never have again.

Opting for an avant garde approach in the kitchen and keeping the ambience stylish and contemporary, if a bit ritzy, Ashoka Bearsden in Kirk Road offers curry lovers a sanctuary in which they can cultivate their passion. For special occasions, the Harlequin Suite provides the space and privacy to celebrate with panache. Dinner at Ashoka Bearsden can open with chicken breast, haggis or mushroom pakora, spicy chicken wings or crispy mixed vegetable tempura. The menu's connoisseur's choice serves up main course options of diced lamb Bombay style, chicken with red peppers, spinach and garam masala, marinated chicken with tomato and black pepper and Himalayan hot pot with lamb or chicken. There's also south Indian garlic chilli chicken bursting with hot and spicy flavours. Sundries of poppadoms, spiced onions, mango pickle and raita keep company along with sides of pilau rice and naan bread.
