Our Story

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

A harmonious marriage of music and food

As unique as her voice, the world-renowned Indian singer and actor, Asha Bhosle, is the driving force behind an award-winning culinary destination that transcends cultures and crosses continents. The high profile opening of the first Asha’s restaurant at WAFI Dubai in 2002 heralded the realisation of the second great passion in her life – outstanding Indian food.

In just 15 years, the global Indian restaurant chain has become a firm favourite of regional and international diners with 13 locations in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Kuwait and Qatar in the Gulf, and Birmingham and Manchester in the UK.

Our Spices

Asha spices

From the hands of the master

At the heart of every one of our dishes is a bespoke mix of spices, from Asha’s traditional family masala recipe to specially created blends guaranteed to delight all the senses.

Asha personally oversees the work of the restaurants’ spice master to ensure the essence of her culinary philosophy is imprinted in every kitchen, and in the experience of every diner. Aromatic cardamom, piquant chillies, earthy cumin and other spices work in harmony with sweet, bold, spicy and sour notes to create a perfect repertoire of unforgettable dishes.

I couldn't fault Asha's. First time visit but will certainly return soon. The starter of assorted poppadoms and a very tasty platter of chicken, lamb kebab and king prawn were outstanding. The chicken tikka masala for the main contained excellent quality soft, flavoursome meat. Throughly recommend this place!!

Visited this restaurant with my husband after a strong recommendation. The decor was lovely and relaxing the staff were great attentive but not too much and the food was excellent. Definitely worth a visit!
