Ashoka, in the heart of Manchester's city centre, has been well-established for over 20 years, and locals and visitors alike have increasingly taken this warm family restaurant to their hearts. Ashoka was the emperor of Greater India over 2000 years ago; a great and much-loved ruler who would, surely, be satisfied with the superb authentic cuisine and impeccable service at this eponymous Manchester restaurant. You're sure to be treated like a king here; service from owner Aslam and his team is fast and friendly and the waiters are knowledgeable and helpful, happy to make a recommendation or explain anything on the menu. Two top chefs, experts in Indian cuisine, bring you authenticity and originality by experimenting with new methods and tastes. Make this the place where you try something a little different from the usual and you'll almost certainly discover something quite exciting. Specialities include karahi dishes - a Punjabi style of cooking using garlic, ginger, coriander, tomatoes and sizzling green chillies - as well as fruity balti styles, cooked with a massala sauce, chillies, herbs and plums. Try the quail makhani for something a little unusual; delicate quail barbecued with a rich butter, tomato and cream sauce. Along with great quality, Ashoka offers really good value for money. You can enjoy poppadoms with chutneys and dips, naan bread, onion bhajee and shish kebab along with a main of chicken massala, mixed vegetable curry and pilau rice, all for just £4.95 at lunchtime. Filling and flavoursome, the restaurant's special offers are perfect for an easy, affordable meal at lunchtime or to kick off a great night out, and offer the unbeatable opportunity to sit down with friends or colleagues and really savour a meal. If the occasion calls for something a bit spectacular though, check out the private function room which has space to seat up to 50. Ashoka is a place that must be visited by any curry lover; the restaurant achieves convenience, style and originality to perfection, without compromising on what really matters - great Indian food
