A well known hotel and Indian restaurant around these parts, Ashiana is where those in Newark-on-Trent and, more specifically, North Muskham, go for a sophisticated yet affordable meal. Not just that, Ashiana occupies what was formerly a country pub on Bathly Lane, meaning it’s accessible even for those making the worthwhile trip from Nottingham. The menu here packs quantity as well as quantity with plenty of interesting spice combinations on offer to satisfy those palettes that like it mild as well as those that like it fiery. One chef’s signature that we wholeheartedly recommend is the bengol quail – tandoori stone quail, lightly spiced with winter herbs, curry leaves and button onions.
If you want a hot, fragrant and incredibly tasty curry, try the mirch masala. It’s made with five varieties of chilli and is amazing. The king prawn pepper fry whilst is one of the most expensive choices it also worth it. The prawns are incredible and huge! You won’t be disappointed with any choices here.
Great range of dishes, not too cheap but a good meal!
Staff very attentive. The standard of cuisine excellent. The lamb cutlets out of this world. Well worth the visit.
The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and so was the food.
Had to wait ages for our drinks. Poppadums were a little soft. One of our main courses was wrong and had to be replaced. Subsequent drink rounds were always one drink short and had to be brought separately. They said they were two staff short that evening (they said the same thing the last time we were there!) and very kindly didn't charge us for the incorrect main course and a round of drinks. Shame as this was a supposed to be a special meal for the four of us.
The restaurant is bright, clean and looks very posh. We were greeted with smiles all around and the staff were very attentive. The food was spot on and we didn’t have to wait too long. Overall a very nice evening
Good food excellent lobster and prawn dishes. Coffee not very good and service could be a little more attentive. I would want to have a seamless customer experience rather all the staff need to be at the top level not just 1 or 2.
Excellent meal and service that we’ve become accustomed too. Friendly and efficient staff and excellent well presented food. Well worthy of their recent awards. See you again very soon.
It was quite a good experience. The food they served was really authentic and the staff very helpful. Keep up the good work Would definitely visit again.
Classy decor, comfortable and clean, excellent food and super friendly staff. Without doubt this restaurant deserves 5 stars.
