Back in the Middle Ages, spices were so rare that a tablespoon of pepper was worth a semi-detached in Bearsden while a pinch of cumin seeds could be exchanged for a palatial ranch in Ayrshire complete with a guitar-shaped swimming pool and a heli-pad.
Tuck into today’s Big Deal to enjoy the spicy treasures of the Indian culinary canon without having to hand over your property deeds.
Founded in 1973, the Ashoka West End has satisfied the curry pangs of generations of hungry Glaswegians.
Just like the nearby Kelvingrove Museum, the busy restaurant has, through it tireless spicy work down the ages, won a place in the heart of the city.
What the museum managed with educational exhibits from around the world, The Ashoka West End achieved with a winning combo of haggis pakora, tender lamb Bhoona and a cheeky line in chat that would put a smile on the back end of a bus.
Tens of thousands of people have stepped through the Ashoka’s pakora-scented portals desperate to marvel at their chicken tikka masala and applaud the aloo tikki potato cakes.
Many an office toiler has dreamed of five o-clock and the chance to sink their gnashers into the Ashoka’s Nihari lamb or perhaps the green Sabja chicken with its fresh spinach leaves.
Become part of the Ashoka West End legend with today’s Big Deal. Two starters, two main courses with nan and two drinks (small glass of wine, half of lager or single spirits measure) is £18; a 57% saving on the standard £42.
