Food is very good, all the usual indian menu items Service is bad Portions are small and they will nickle and dime you on things like rice. They will not serve tap water. Bathrooms are under a key. So depends on what you care about.

Have tried several Indian restaurents in Slovakia and found Ashoka the best Indian restaurant. I enjoyed the chicken butter masala, and Meat rogan josh. it's the best and recommend it along with Indian Naan. If anyone fancy Indian food in Bratislava then I recommend Ashoka!

Traditional interior with vegetarian food. However food is not fresh looks like always. Variety is available but they serve food already cooked sometimes(based on our experience) which can be easily catches while eating . Many items were also not served .

Very tasty, but also quite expensive Indian food for Bratislava. The waiters don't speak Slovak :) Vegetarian lunch menu is nice (the portiin could be bigger).

Went with a group of friends and the food was not the best. Coming from an area where Asian restaurants are on every corner, we thought we should opt for a taste of home on this sunny Saturday evening. Couldn't wait to get tucked into a mixed grill. Outcome of food tasted: kebabs were rubbery. Poppadoms- no chutney provided. They... More

Located next to a casino we had high expectations, especially given other reviews had reported "large portions". Whilst winners from the casino may celebrate with a quick ruby, we were the losers on that night. Expensive, small portions, luke warm food and distinctly average....I feel I could have knocked up a more authentic curry with a morrisons chicken breast and... More

What an expensive disappointment. Came here with 8 friends but the restaurant lacked any atmosphere, service was incorrect at times and the food was average. Most of the dishes arrived luke warm and for a restaurant which boats an expensive menu we expected much more. The portions were also small. Overall disappointing.

Ashoka is on the ground floor of the Crowne Plaza in Bratislava. It is unexpectedly large, not counting the outdoor seating under awnings. The food is Indian for sure. The restaurant touts that it Indian-owned, with an Indian chef, serving only Indian food. What each of us had was really enough for one person and both dishes with their respective... More

One of the best Indian restaurants I've been to. We had group dinners there for two consecutive nights, which allowed us to sample a large part of the menu. It's spicy, it's truly Indian, it's hot, and it's done with the best ingredients. Not a watered-down version for Europeans, but as real as it can be. I would recommend this... More
