Since first opening in Dubai in 2002, our restaurants around the world have enjoyed a wealth of critical commendation and industry accolades. We love that our peers and food critics recognise our qualities but, when it comes right down to it, what we strive for the most is your approval and enjoyment of the Asha’s dining experience.
Championing authentic Indian food and culinary innovation in thirteen opulent restaurants across some of the world’s most iconic cities, Bollywood singing legend Asha Bhosle has married the two great passions of her life – music and food.
Opposite the Theatre Royal in Peter Street, Asha’s Manchester occupies one of the city’s finest Victorian palazzo buildings. Inside, elegant interiors and lavish comfort befitting an Indian palace await – a setting worthy of Michelin-listed Indian cuisine. The latest in a global chain of restaurants opened since 2002, the secret behind the success of Asha’s the restaurant is the same as that of Asha the recording artist – authenticity, beautifully refined taste and, above all, love.
In just 15 years, the global Indian restaurant chain has become a firm favourite of regional and international diners with 13 locations in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Kuwait and Qatar in the Gulf, and Birmingham and Manchester in the UK.
Under the personal supervision of Asha Bhosle herself, our spice master brings years of knowledge and experience to the creation of Asha’s trademark spice blends. Unique to Asha’s, these blends are embedded into the DNA of each of our restaurants, ensuring that every one of our guests enjoys the authentic Asha’s dining experience.
A harmony of sweet, sour and spicy, our blends combine fragrant cardamom, fiery chillies, earthy cumin, delicate coriander and an array of other beautifully balanced flavours to bring each dish vividly to life.
Respecting tradition and authenticity whilst pushing the boundaries of contemporary cuisine, Asha’s multi award winning formula combines heritage with innovation. Working closely with Asha Bhosle and presiding over the restaurants’ visionary menus, our three group executive chefs bring to the table years of cooking for royalty, presidents, celebrities and sports stars. Inspired by regional flavours and the culinary traditions of North West India, each of our recipes blends exquisite ingredients with authentic cuisine to delight the palate and tantalise the taste buds.
Fresh, sustainable and locally sourced wherever possible, at Asha’s we understand that the greatest dishes always start with the finest ingredients.
The food and service were fantastic. We weren't rushed but we didn't have to wait either. The ambience was great and very relaxed. Would definitely recommend.
Visited with family who are all vegetarians. Ordered Veg platter for starters that serves 2-3 and the Aloo Tikki was very tasty. Paneer was soft and perfectly balanced. Main course was mind blowing.
I have just had the best, I say again, the best Indian dining experience ever. Asha's in Manchester has the friendliest staff THE best Indian food I have ever tasted.
We went here on a recommendation and it didn't disappoint. The food was amazing as was the service. The portions were really good and this place take Indian food to a new level.
Quality Indian food and excellent service, in very nice surroundings, will definitely go back when in Manchester
It was a wonderful experience, will definitely be taking my family to visit Asha's. The food was made to perfection and couldn't of asked for more. The customer service was faultless. Words can't describe how amazing the food actually is, I would recommend this place to everyone.
A chance visit a couple of weeks ago, resulted in a return visit to this wonderful restaurant. The lunch special menu is amazing, full of interesting and unique flavours, served by the most attentive and polite staff in lovely sleek surroundings.
