Service was .... enthusiastic by the student waiting team. Food arrived promptly without a hitch and as I say it was ok. Expensive though for what it was. To be honest, there are cheaper... More

I called for a takaway on the spur of the moment as I fancied a change from my usual curry haunt in town. They have just been refurbished apparently - it was about 50% full when I arrived. Ordered one massala and one madras based dish, and beetled home. On opening the cartons, I must admit to being very disappointed.... More

I have eaten in the Light of Asia some years ago. It was good then but increasingly I order a Takeaway and eat it over-looking South Beach from an upstairs bay window. The food is well-prepared and authentic (3 years living in the Middle East and Asia) and properly packaged. They meet their ready-by timings as well so only time... More

I've been to countless curry houses throughout the UK and I have to say that nothing quite compares to the high level of food quality and customer service that Light of Asia offers. I have been to this restaurant numerous times and each time seems to only get better. This restaurant offers a very rich variety of curries and the... More

Really tasty chicken tikka masala, maybe one of the best! Staff were fairly friendly, lots of choices for whatever you may fancy to eat. Interior is quite modern and bright.

Very very good food. Rang up for a table and they were able to seat all seven of us half an hour later. Generous portions and flavourful food. Thoroughly recommend.

We have been here a few times but this was the first time in about 5 years, it has changed so much, it is clean, staff friendly and food is amazing, We got there for 6pm and all tables were reserved, we hadn't booked but luckily they gave us a table as the people who had reserved had booked it...

I'm not a massive Indian fan but even I enjoyed this place! The restaurant is nice and has a relaxed atmosphere, everything is clean and modern. We were served by two male staff members who were very attentive and friendly, did week thing they could to make sure we happy. We had popadoms and dips while deciding our mains and... More
