Our food was of a high standard and served quickly. The prices are reasonable for food and drinks. Particularly liked the big bottles of Kingfisher beer. Service was good and staff were helpful.

Food was good and plentiful. The $14.95 price for dinner buffet was VERY reasonable, given that it included appetizer items, main dishes, naan, rice and desserts. We visited Ashoka for the first time and met friends who had eaten at Ashoka. Will likely return in...More

We've gone to this restaurant for eons, and it never disappoints. Our guests are always eager to try new foods and experience authentic northern Indian dishes. We've never been disappointed at this restaurant, unlike others in the San Diego region.

Very nice place in a strip mall in Little India. Good variety of Indian dishes from various regions, from mild to spicy. Selection of Indian beers, small wine list. Everything we had was very good. The biryani dishes were excellent. Good value for the money.

We have eaten at Ashoka twice and the experience was pretty similar. Although the restaurant is in a strip shopping center and the surroundings area is very commercial, the inside of the restaurant is a pleasant surprise. All the tables (white table clothes) are in...More

This is a pretty decent location with good options for both regular menu and buffet. We opted for the buffet and it was standard buffet with options for both veggies and non-veggies. The Navratan Kurma was really good.
