Although not cheap, the quality of the food at Ashoka justifies the prices and is sure to please. The only disappointing factor was the new staff who were unsure of themselves and had to be asked multiple times for drinks

I have always ordered takeaway from Ashoka and during my last visit I was reminded why. The staff were unhelpful and almost rude. Almost as you are inconveniencing them.
The dining area is in desperate need of a face lift with leaky pipes and dirty walls in the bar area.
My meal was not much better. Next time I will think twice

Ashoka Palace is one of the oldest Indian restaurant in Gaborone. It has buffet and a la carte options. Good taste and wide choice.

It is located at the center of the city and I had a wonderful Indian buffet at lunch for a reasonable price. The buffet included various known Indian foods and it was tasty. It has inside and outdoor seating and inside is spacious to accommodate many people. If you love Indian food, this is the place to visit.

One of The best restaurants in Gaborone
They give you what you want for example less salt less oil more sweet more gravy like that.The taste,speed and quantity on a very economical price are the major factors which makes ashoka a better restaurant when compared to others.Eventhough located in such a way there is no shopping complex or malls around this restaurant but people still go specifically just to eat at ashoka because of quality stuff with enough quantity at affordable prices.
