Enjoyed my meal at this restaurant,good service good food. Wasn't rushed to vacate our table, which is always a bonus when meeting up with friends! Used a voucher for 50% of main meal, although you end up paying over the top for drinks, but it saves you a little!

My wife and I booked a table at ASK in Rayleigh last Saturday for 7 pm as we had tickets for a music venue just round the corner and a show that started at 9 pm. The restaurant is large, insipidly furnished and with bland décor, "Never mind" we thought, its only a quick meal then get to sit down... More

Had a very nice meal at this restaurant to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. We both tried the new meat balls on the menu, they were spicy & were served with a hot side dip. Very nice. Our main courses were equally as nice & came up piping hot. There was plenty of food at a reasonable price. The service... More

Food ok but... It's what you would expect from a chain restaurant. Service was not all that. After our last experience there we found it a little expensive.

Food and service were good, however, my major issue was with the chairs. Ok I'm quite big but the chairs were uncomfortable to sit on as the top of the legs were proud of the rest of the seat. Trivial maybe but will think about going back again.

I love the Ask chain and enjoy eating in their restaurants and this is no exception. Good food,Great service and a very lively( if somewhat noisy in the conservatory area) atmosphere. Ask to be seated in the main building if you are not keen on the noisy environment. A great place to spend a very pleasant evening.

Fast food, slow service, cold salad is best as it does not pretend to be hot. My friends rave about it so have tried it now on three occasions. Reheated boiled rice and cold veg. Never again. Mind you if you like KFC then this is the a posh version. Nothing like real Italian food.

Went for dinner with a group of friends. The friend who had booked had asked about using Tastecard, told this was fine. There were six of us with 3 Tastecards. When we arrived and went to confirm our use of the cards we were told we could only use one per table, not sure why when if we had booked... More
