The Light of Asia is currently closed and the freehold has been sold due to the recent retirement of its previous owners. The building is currently undergoing renovation and will re-open soon as a new Bangladeshi restaurant.

Having not visited this restaurant for almost 35 years it was amazing to find it's hardly changed a bit, even the waiter/proprietor was the same. The food was great with a depth of flavour so often missing nowadays. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit , will trynot to leave it so long next time.

The restaurant is a little dated, I haven't been since the 90s and it looks like it hasn't changed. Food is good, I went for my usual chicken tikka masala and got what I was expecting. Nothing in particular special to write home about, as others have said, average.

As others have mentioned it is slightly dirty inside and is need of a spring clean. Food was satisfactory but could have been a lot better... More

We visited the restaurant on a Sunday evening and it was very quiet in the restaurant. The restaurant is in a character property, though it really needs a good freshen up to brighten the place and make it more inviting and also clean. Our waiter was very friendly and our food was very good.

Never had a bad meal, the table linen and cutlery are always pristine, however the overall decor does let it down a little bit, and we now have more take always than eat ins. The staff are always friendly and the Manager has been there for at least twenty years, and always recognises us when we ring up They are... More

Have been in this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed the food. Unfortunately no longer go there as the place is looking rather tatty and dirty. On the last visit sat by the window which has some sort of window box on it with dirty foam and ciggie ends in it, was a bit off putting. Shame as the... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant for me and my family. The food arrived prompt and was hot and very tasty. Service was friendly and I will most definitely visit this restaurant when I am in the area.

This was the first meal I have had in this restaurant. Ahmed was friendly and welcoming. He recommended specials that were both hot and delicious. I will definitely be returning and I will be recommending Light of Asia to my friends and colleagues.
