Modern Indian restaurants come with their own USPs such as street food, home cooking and regionally-specific cuisine. Asha’s, near the library end of Peter Street, has decided to go high-end with proper posh Rogan Josh nosh.
The eponymous global restaurant group is part-owned by Bollywood singing star Asha Bhosle (as in ‘a brimful of…’) who, as well as being cited in the Guinness Book of Records as ‘the most recorded artist in music history’, is also an excellent cook.
Apparently the fit-out cost £2m but although pleasant enough, Asha’s doesn’t have the obvious lacquered opulence of somewhere like Tattu or Vermillion. Downstairs is devoted to private dining and drinking, while upstairs you’ll find a chic space that suits any occasion.
