Situated in Ashby-De-La-Zouch, The Rickshaw in Ashby lies centrally within the quiet market town in North-West Leicestershire. A mere 25 minute drive away from Burton-upon-Trent and Loughborough Ashby is centrally located and worth time to explore in its own right. English Heritage maintain Ashby Castle which again lies no more than a 10 minute walk away, just outside the centre of Ashby.
The Rickshaw in Ashby resides inside a converted pub in heart of the town with its own car park space provided for customers. The interior is designed around a clean and classy look, however it still contains some of the traditional and ornate features that it would hope to have with traditional wall hangings and paintings which set the scene perfectly. With a wide variety of different seating arrangements, the Rickshaw can always cater for special events, parties and larger groups with ease. First established as a brand in 1994 elsewhere in the East Midlands, over two decades in the business means that the staff at the Rickshaw really understand what UK curry fanatics desire and they nail it every time!
When it comes to the food the Rickshaw blends Indian and Bangladeshi dishes with authenticity and accuracy which has been passed down through generations of culinary experience. The variety of dishes available speak for themselves. The classics such as Chicken Tikka Masala and Tandoori King Prawn Sagwala are offered alongside specials only found at the Rickshaw. Aptly named, the Rickshaw Special contains a large chicken breast stuffed with spiced mince lamb and cooked within a clay oven, before adding the signature hot sauce. Treats such as these are not to be missed out on, and they cleverly demonstrate the combination of tradition and innovation that the Rickshaw delivers.
The Rickshaw in Ashby offer a very strong option for Indian and Bangladeshi food within the East Midlands, especially if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of town. Merging tradition and innovation this restaurant can only offer an excellent dining experience!
