“Superb Restaurant”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

As one of several Indian restaurants in Henley, this establishment needs to be good to be successful. It certainly lives up to this objective. As well as an excellent choice of Indian dishes, the restaurant offers a good choice of Thai and even a few Chinese. I have not tried the latter, but the Indian and Thai dishes my wife and I have experienced have been very tasty and cooked to perfection.
Prices are very reasonable and offer extremely good value, especially if a booking is made for a Tuesday or Wednesday evening which are so called banquet nights. For £10.95 you can have any starter, a main course, rice or nan and a side dish, as well as coffee. We particularly like the items prefixed "Asiana" as they are chef's specialities and would be more expensive on other days of the week, apart from being our favourites besides!
A nice feature is that you can mix your menu choice, e.g. have a Thai starter and an Indian main course.
Service is very friendly, although can be a bit slow when they are busy. Although the restaurant looks a bit garish from the outside, once inside it is apparent it has a nice congenial atmosphere.
The fact that we are regular customers says it all - we know of none better locally and at such good value!

“Probably the best curry in Henley”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

I met two friends here fairly early on a Tuesday evening, and it was already busy. Far busier than any other Indian restaurant in Henley. This isn't a guarantee of a good meal, but its a great sign. It's an unusual menu, pages of India and other Asian cuisines. It's organised so you can easily stick to one type of food, and I had only Indian dishes. But if some of your group prefer Thai food, they'll also have a good choice, or if you want to mix it all up, that's an option too!

I had a chicken Biryani, one of my regular favourites, and this was a fine example.Nicely spiced and plenty of chicken and other vegetables mixed in with the rice. The veg curry that come with it was also excellent.

By about 8:30pm, the place was full (on a Tuesday!), and service did get a bit slow from then on, but after a bit of arm waving, we managed to get more drinks and eventually the bill, which was reasonable.

This will be my regular Indian restaurant when in Henley.

“Unique blend”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

A chance discovery walking down the street and we've been back a few times now. As someone from South Asia, it is so rare to find quality Indian food cooked in restaurants in the UK - mostly it's take-away style rubbish.

I was VERY impressed with the flavours (no excess oil or fluorescent colours), portion sizes and menu choices. To top it off, the chef even cooks delicious Thai food. Very rare find, indeed.

Surprisingly empty at lunch time - this place should be in Reading and not in Henley. If you value authentic food and friendly service, I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

“Indian/Thai fusion menu hits the spot!”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

The quality and taste delivered in this restaurant is up there with the very best in the UK. The Tandoori chicken (either as a starter or main course) is moist and soaked in flavour, the Tikka Fish Lasooni is sublime and probably the best dish in the restaurant. Mind you, the King Prawns (in a variety of dishes) are exceptional too.
And to top it off, Asiana was offering a New Year's Eve dinner at £14:95 each for a four course meal!
If you are in Henley-on-Thames, you have to try Asiana Spice.
