“Old style curry house”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

For a no frills delicious curry with great service this is the place. All the usual choices are available, well cooked and served with a smile. The head waiter is brilliant and always has a joke waiting. Excellent value

“Yum for vegos”
Reviewed 2 August 2013 via mobile

We stumbled across this place late and it was not very busy so we were immediately concerned especially on a Friday night. However we shared papadums and chutneys garlic naan spinach rolls and two vegetable curries one with ground almond. It was delicious not greasy and the service was perfect. Yum!

“First came here 20 years ago and it's still great!”
Reviewed 7 April 2013 via mobile

We came back to the Asia Restaurant which used to be an old haunt when we lived in Salisbury. The service was excellent and we had an great chat with the waiters while selecting our food. We decided to go for the main course only but with lots of sundries and side dishes after the requisite poppadoms and chutney. The food was tasty and not greasy as some of the reviewers have stated. The peshwari naan was wonderful! A good trip down memory lane ....

“OK but dated, food average.”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

They lost our order so we had to wait 30+ minutes after we finished our starter. We finally received them 1 hour after we had entered the place. Even though they apologised profusely and nicely it was not really satisfactory. My partner's curry was just average and he said it was very mild and lacking in flavour, which was not what he was expecting. Mine was just OK and the vegetable curry was also lacking in flavour.

The staff are extremely professional, and the place is spotlessly clean. We were amazed to see one of the waiters continually polishing and checking glasses before sending them out to diners! You do not see that much these days.

However the decor is extremely dull, dated and lacking in zest. The padded leatherette bar front is hilariously dated. They need to spend some money on new china as theirs is really old fashioned and does not allow for artistic presentation.

“Still the best Curry house in Salisbury”
Reviewed 25 November 2012

I have been going to this restaurant on and off since the 1970's and although I guess it has changed hands a number of times since then, it has still trained it's quality. The restaurant itself doesn't look anything special, just a simple long room. But the food and the service are excellent. The staff are always friendly and often go that little bit further like recently when they found out that it was my daughter's birthday during our meal and then played a Hindi birthday song and brought out a free dessert with a candle, a really nice touch. I love the special rice with an omelette ( a meal on it's own) but most things I have had have been great. I will keep returning for many years to come.
