About Ashoka Argyle Street (West End)
Another superb evening
Yet another triumph for the Ashoka - we are never disappointed with the food and last night was excellent as we expected. Brilliant value for money too.
Had friends from H.K. visiting and they wanted a GLASGOW CURRY! Where else would I take them, but one of the first curry houses in the Westend? My friend and I were regulars here 40 yrs ago!! We were greeted warmly, service was friendly, attentive and the food was fantastic. We asked for a curry that was not on the menu- that was no problem, no extra charge. The muse bouchée of spiced paneer was a delight to try. My friends were really happy with their food and want to return to Glasgow for another visit!
Indian restaurant near Kelvingrove
A West End landmark since 1973, the Ashoka West End on Argyle Street has an extensive menu of authentic Indian dishes. Located a stone’s throw from Kelvingrove Art Gallery, it has a cosy atmosphere and attentive staff.
Punjabi dishes & connoisseur choices
Mostly Punjabi in style, if you feel like sharing there are meat and fish platters to share such as the tandoori mixed platter with tandoori chicken, chicken tikka, seekh kebab, lamb tikka and king prawns.
The old favourites are featured in the house specials from your choice of chasni and south Indian garlic chilli to a rich bhoona.
If you’re looking for a more unusual choice, there are ‘connoisseurs’ choices’ from the delicious sikandri lamb; lamb shanks marinated overnight with ginger, garlic, green chillies and Indian spices, served with garlic potatoes to the tandoori murgh makanwala; whole pieces of chicken tikka simmered in tomato, honey with lashings of cream and spices.
As with most Indian restaurants, there are numerous vegetarian options available.
