Shiraz was excellent. Lasagne was a childs portion also no taste levels to the sauce. Do not think red wine is used. Plain pizza good. Mushroom starter dry and tasteless. Service very good

Having had a heavy lunch we were shopping in the lanes and grabbed some dinner here. We've dined at ASK a handful of times and we're pleased with our food. The environment however, massively lets this place down. We were seated by the window in the front room - the lighting resembled a fast food chain with horrific bright lights... More

We hada lovely impromptu meal in Ask and it was delicious. Love the fact they have cocktails on offer at the moment and the flexibility of having a half-portion main course with a salad. I was given the wrong cocktail but the waiter quickly put it right and apologised. Great service! Look forward to going back.

I visit this restaurant as often as possible. This particular one is set in what seems to be a house and has such a quirky yet relaxed layout. Great if you're going with family friends partner or children. Menu caters for everyone and is fairly priced. My only problem is that on a number of occasions here my food has... More

Visited Ask with a few friends for dinner before a night on the town. We hadn't booked and although they were busy we were able to get a table. Food was lovely especially the pudding (had chocolate etna) it didn't look much like it did on the menu but tasted lush. Would be a 5 star if the staff had... More

A large family group of ten enjoyed an important birthday celebration here recently. We were given a large table and were a little isolated from the other diners which was just a well as we were there for quite a while and were inevitably a little noisy. The children were given a sheet with exercises on them to keep them... More

In Great Malvern, Ask is an epic affair with chefs on show, sizzling....smoke....flamboyance and flair. Ask Brighton is an altogether quieter affair. It's a bit like dining in some-one's house with lots of small rooms. This is not to say it's bad...just a different experience. The staff are charming...the food was excellent and dining in a small room felt very... More

Visited with Family. Food was average, staff ignored us consequently. Never again! There is a big choice of other Restaurants nearby, better choose another.
