Welcome to Ashoka

Welcome to Ashoka – a culinary haven that seamlessly blends the rich heritage of India with the vibrant spirit of Sheffield.


Established in 1967, we have become an iconic part of Sheffield's gastronomic landscape, garnering accolades such as being featured in The Times Top 10 Indian Restaurants, receiving the Sheffield Restaurant of the Year title, and securing a coveted spot in the Top 60 of the Good Curry Guide.

At the heart of our legacy is a commitment to delivering gourmet Indian food that has stood the test of time. Since its inception, we have been delighting the palates of Sheffielders and beyond with a delectable array of tandooris, tikkas, kebabs, freshly baked breads, biryanis and the like.

The kitchen, with its roots dating back to 1967, remains steadfast in its dedication to turning out both dependable Indian food staples and intriguing, less-familiar dishes. Our culinary journey is not just a tale of tradition but a celebration of innovation.
Our chef specialties, including the ever popular Karamelised Kashmiri, 48 Hour Chicken Tikka and Railway Lamb - cooked with new potatoes in a rich sauce, showcase a joining of authentic flavours and creative culinary prowess. 

The passion for delivering consistently delicious dishes continues to drive us forward. Far from resting on our laurels, we remain at the forefront of Sheffield's dining scene, offering an unparalleled experience. Our commitment to excellence extends beyond the kitchen, as we pride ourselves on providing warm and welcoming service.

Step into our intimate, stylish restaurant space inspired by the Irani cafes of Mumbai, where modern elegance meets traditional charm. The ambiance at Ashoka strikes the perfect balance – lively enough to set a spirited tone, yet never over-boisterous. It's a space where every visit becomes a memorable journey through the flavours and culture of India.

Every dish tells a story and every bite is a testament to our enduring commitment to being second to none.


Inspired by India. Made in Sheffield.
