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.

Iselin S. 20 January 2009

I took some colleagues to this modern Indian restaurant on a Monday night in January 2009. Expecting that no one would be there, we had not booked in advance, but find that we had to wait to be seated as they cleared our table. They have a nice lounge/bar where one can enjoy a range of cocktails and wines. Once seated the service was excellent, their wine list had a good selection and was well priced. The food is a chapter on its own – this is one of the absolute best Indian meals I have ever had – and it is a cuisine that I have often – all three in our party argreed. When asked what was best about the meal from a colleague the following day, we agreed that the lamb vindaloo was the best, but then remembered the chicken jalfrezi, the nan, the dahl, and then decided that absolutely everything we had was amazing – fresh, seriously tasty and prepared with what seemed like plenty of loving care. This restaurant is not to be missed!
