Restaurant description

Owned by Bollywood singer Asha Bhosle, Asha’s Indian Bar and Restaurant serves deliciously authentic Indian cuisine and family recipes. Awarded Best Newcomer in the British Curry awards, Asha’s is a true favourite in the heart of Birmingham.

Traditional North Western Indian cuisine and traditional home cooking has influenced Asha‘s myriad of succulent meat and vegetarian dishes. Specials include the panchpharon whole lobster, simmered with 5 spices, whilst the lamb biryani oozes a rich saffron flavour. Asha Birmingham presents a number of delicious desserts of both British and Indian inspiration, including a chocolate fudge cake and the classic cold Indian dessert, Rasmali.

With its low celings and seductively lit rooms, Asha's exudes Bollywood glamour throughout. A cooly decorated space, Asha’s Bar and Restaurant features dark wood tables and vibrant orange and lime green furnishings, instantly putting you in the mood for a sophisticated Indian dining affair.

Close to the Great Western Arcade shopping centre, Asha's Indian Bar and Restaurant is also just a 5-minute walk to Birmingham Snow Hill Rail Station.

    Service was standard which is probably due to the social distancing however the food was not as good as I would expect. The vegetarian platter was very good the lamb in the kebab and the main dish was not good and saag with paneer again not very good. The tandoori chicken was very good. The chicken briyani again not very good. Very good selection of drinks to try. For the quality of food it was very over priced but I'm glad we tried it. Varanasi and pushka's food is cooked to a much better standard.

    Excellent food and service. Mid week lunch time can be a little quiet, but that suits me.
