With a wide choice of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, approved by the likes of Tom Cruise, Ed Sheeran and The Rolling Stones, Asha's is sure to not disappoint!

2. Itihaas

Just a short walk down from Asha’s is Itihaas, a restaurant known for their unique interior and specialist menu featuring a whole range of different curries to tuck in to! Having student budget friendly prices and just being a short walk away from our City Centre campus, Ithiaas is a perfect place to enjoy a curry with your friends.

3. The New Soho Tavern

Sitting in TripAdvisor’s top 20 best Indian restaurants, The New Soho Tavern is a curry lover’s dream! The restaurant, which won Best Desi Pub & Grill 2019, devotes itself to creating mouth-watering Indian dishes including a great selection of chicken, lamb and veggie curries. If their curries are anything like their mixed grills then you’re in for a treat.

4. Indian Streatery

The team of all-female chefs at the Indian Streatery serve up authentic Indian dishes with a street food vibe, think everything from traditional curries to Indian style tapas. Head to their place on Bennetts Hill for a chilled evening meal or check out their grab and go menu for a quick yet very tasty lunch option.
