First time visit and not disappointed. Service was attentive but not overbearing, waiters were polite, helpful and friendly and the food was excellent. This will definitely become our favourite Indian in Chesterfield! You need to try out this place if you've never been before. Thanks Ashoka for a lovely evening.

Having booked tickets to see a play at the Pomegranate Theatre we had 45 minutes to grab some food. Walking from the doughnut car park in the middle of town we decided to call in at Ashoka first and Indian Blues if it was full! With only one other table occupied there was plenty of room and the greeting upon... More

My main dish was lamb Jalfrezi which was a bit of a let down in honesty. I felt the lamb portion to be small with... More

I used to go to this restaurant almost daily when I lived here up to 2006. I went in for first time in ten yrs for my favourite dish. I was given free popadoms n onion salad. Delicious. The main came out. Chicken jhinga. Tasted delicious n exactly how I remember it to be all these yrs on.
