We say…

Situated on the busy Ecclesall Road since 1967, Ashoka is Sheffield’s oldest Indian restaurant. Far away enough from the city centre to be peaceful whilst remaining close enough to be easily accessible, it’s well worth the short walk away from the centre. Sheffield Botanical Gardens are just down the road if you’re after a relaxing day out.

From outside, this place could be easily missed, with a small store front that makes it Sheffield’s secret. Inside, an intimate room has traditional interiors with wooden furniture that reminds diners that this place is well established. Tables that line the edges of the room have cushioned seating so you can settle in and feel comfortable. Paintings hang from the wallpapered walls alongside Indian decorations that portray the traditional culture.

The food served here has changed a lot from the days when only two curries were offered. Now, an extensive menu  that values authenticity and innovation is filled with twists on Indian classics that have been perfected over the years. Appetisers of Alu Chop, fried potatoes coated in classic spices, and Tandoori Lamb Chops take tasty Indian spices and add imaginative aspects. A mixed appetiser, perfect for sharing, is a great choice if you’re spoilt for choice. Classic wood smoked Tandoori kebabs are also on the menu. For your main, choose a speciality curry or try a chef’s favourite. Enjoy a King Prawn Karai if you want something special, as this dish arrives served in its own wok. More traditional dishes are still on the menu if you fancy a comforting chicken korma. A nice choice of lentil based daals are perfect for vegetarians, who have their own separate menu, ensuring there’s something for everyone. Keep an eye on the weekly specials, with certain dishes at reduced prices. 

Ashoka in Sheffield is a true Indian restaurant, serving unbeatable inventions alongside perfected classics. Bring along your family and friends and impress them with this unique venue.
