SquareMeal Review of
Asha's Restaurant & Bar
Asha Bosle, who lends her name to this vast, contemporary Indian restaurant, is a legendary Bollywood star; a ‘singing enchantress’ who inspired Cornershop’s Brimful of Asha hit single of a
few years back. Asha's, the restaurant, has one of the most stunning interiors in Birmingham: beautifully lit, colourful without being overpowering, sophisticated and vibrant. A lengthy menu
spiced with refreshingly unusual ingredients – from white pomfret to carom seeds – offers murg nizami shorba (an intriguing creamy chicken soup with apple and saffron) alongside more traditional
dishes such as Goan fish curry, tandoori chicken salad or rogan josh. Veggie options, such as spinach and chickpea cutlets with khoya (condensed milk), dried fruits and nuts, are imaginative,
tasty and well presented.
