Our Story

Created by a Bollywood legend, discover Asha’s culinary namesake

The jewel in the crown....

In the heart of central Birmingham, an authentic taste of India’s North-West frontier.

 

With a knowledgeable, discerning and populous local clientele, Birmingham is indisputably the UK’s spiritual home of Indian food in all its wonderful diversity. What better place to find a landmark Indian restaurant that elevates the subcontinent’s proud culinary heritage to an unforgettable dining experience in a setting of unashamed opulence?

A fusion of regional classics with spectacular contemporary signature dishes, Asha’s blends street food simplicity with the magnificence of a maharaja’s banquet. Along the way, we’ve been honoured to have been internationally recognised and acclaimed by industry experts, food critics and – most importantly of all – our loyal and highly valued customers.

Perfectly placed in central Birmingham – and famed for our showstopping cocktails – Asha’s in the ideal venue for a convivial after-work get-together, a sumptuous pretheatre meal or an indulgent late night curry after an evening at the movies.

Our Spice Blends

Chicken Dhaba Curry

Passed down through generations...

Many of our spice blends are based on cherished and fondly guarded recipes that have been passed down through generations.

Authentic flavour combinations to delight the palate – the heat of chillies, the earthy richness of cumin, fragrant cardamom and delicate coriander… all of these and many more spices, blended with meticulous care to achieve a tantalising balance of the sweet, the sour and the piquant. In the skilled hands of our chefs, it is these unique spice blends that bring each and every dish so vividly to life.

Herbs and Spices

An inspired fusion of the traditional and the contemporary

Between them, our executive chefs have cooked for royalty, presidents and leading lights of the celebrity world, from stage and screen to music and sport. Devising a menu that brings contemporary twists to authentic North-West frontier cuisine, we bring you a selection of dishes that blend tradition with innovation.

The quality and integrity of our spice blends is only half of the story. As every chef knows, the secret of a truly great dish is the quality of the ingredients. At Asha’s, we strive to source sustainable, organic produce from local suppliers wherever possible – meat and vegetables direct from the farm gate, fish fresh from the harbour side or river bank.

Award-winning Indian cuisine at its finest

Awards

Blending the authentic with the contemporary, Asha’s unique culinary philosophy has won widespread international acclaim. Food critics, industry bodies and – most rewarding of all – our own customers’ feedback endorses our ongoing efforts as we continually strive to set new standards and achieve the ultimate Indian dining experience.

Truly delicious food! Never tasted such a good curry in my life! Me and my friend enjoyed every minute of our dinner yesterday! Great atmosphere and extremely nice service. Big Thank you for having us!

The food here is simply divine - soft crab curry is not something featured on a standard Indian menu, and well worth a try! Very attentive service, big portions of beautifully cooked dishes - highly recommended!

First time I had been in Birmingham for a while and would detour here every week for the quality of food, value and service that you receive at one of the best restaurants in the UK. The quality and consistency is outstanding.

Amazing food, fantastic atmosphere and super attentive staff that were friendly and ready to assist as soon as required. Bar and waiter staff worked as part of a team to ensure efficient service with a personal touch that made us feel special. Would highly recommend; faultless 5*

In Birmingham for a long family weekend and chose Asha's for our Friday night meal. I have eaten in Indian restaurants all around the world but can honestly say the tastes I experienced here were right up there with the best, in fact I will say are the best I have experienced. It is still the stand out meal from a 4 day weekend visit to Birmingham. Would recommend to anyone who appreciates great Indian food.

We decided to visit after hearing good reviews locally. Very impressed. Everything was beautifully presented, and the service was excellent. The mushroom kurkure starter was out of this world. Highly recommended.

Ed K | Trip Advisor

One of the best Indian meals I've ever had. Only booked a table an hour ahead but we were eating early and they were able to accommodate us, the restaurant was certainly getting busy by the time we left so I would recommend booking in advance. Overall a wonderful dining experience, very highly recommended....

Visit to Asha's restaurant was truly amazing. We were really impressed with the ambience and then food was simply great.  For vegetarians also this is superb and service was outstanding by Omar in particular. Big thanks to the management.
