The food is uniformly delicious, served in ample portions, well-seasoned and presented at the perfect temperature. Spice heat and other special requests are graciously handled by an attentive but not overbearing staff. We always order the mushroom appetizer, heavenly salmon curry and sublime chicken tikka masala. Ashoka’s raita is rich and velvety, a perfect accompaniment along with their several naan and rice variations. Indian rice pudding is our go-to dessert, always a cool, calming delicacy at the close of such a flavor-forward dinner. I give Ashoka my highest recommendation and hope it thrives forever!

Ashoka was the perfect choice. The atmosphere was levels above most local Indian restaurants. It was warm and cozy and non-drafty and the decor was modern with comfortable banquets. The decor resembles more of a slick Japanese restaurant rather then an Indian restaurant but that elevated the experience. The best part of the evening is that they have live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights. It was 2 guitar players playing old jazz standards most of which I didn’t know but it was till fun. The menu was varied, the food tasty, and the presentation very nice. My Lassi has an umbrella in it and the nan was arranged on a platter with yogurt sauce.
