My wife and I decided to give the Royal Ashoka a try not having been there for some time. We turned up at 7pm on a Friday without a booking on the night of the Christmas Light switch on and the town was packed and the restaurant busy but they fitted us in. They have added Royal to the name... More

We pre-ordered our takeaway to be delivered after the fireworks. It arrived on time and was piping hot. The food was all really good (I especially enjoyed the Bhindi Bhajee). Good size portions and very tasty.

Rudest ever waiter. While dining with a deaf friend, we were served by a man who initially seemed cordial and polite. When we mentioned the badly chipped crockery, when asked : 'how is your meal', we were told: "it's your style." No explanation was forthcoming as to why this comment was made, despite several questions to ascertain what he was... More

We've been hearing good things about this place since they've got new owners, one being an award winning chef (won the Gorgon Ramsey's F word a few years back) so it's time to give it a go. The food was just superb; not your typical Indian grub sitting in a pool of oil but just delicate flavoured food that has... More

So, I asked for no ghee, no sugar, no honey, for medical reasons. Not here sauces prepared in advance but quickly, as if naturally, our meal appeared and it was superb, subtle, flavoured, quality and tender chicken. Nothing so good for miles and kindly served with purpose and care. We hope to be back soon. So very good, service and... More

We were visiting the area and saw the restaurant in the town . The chef worked in Lasan in 2010 when they won the f word in Gordon Ramseys competition. I wasn't disappointed. Probably the most authentic indian cuisine I have ever tasted . Had the beef dish with butternut squash which won the competition. Will definitely make the effort... More

Received one of their flyers though the door , not being aware that Salam, one of the previous emploees here had taken over. The original Ashoka was always pretty reliable but now with Salam and his new chef/business partner I think we can all expect a much more interesting and unusual menu. We decide to give it a go and... More
