fter eating ham and cheese and sausages in Berlin we were gasping for a curry. Visited 5pm an found a great buffet deal at Ashoka for £8.95 a head – which is much cheaper than the usual Friday price. Having been to two Ashoka’s before we were looking forward to it.
First boo boo, no note of our booking,
Second, goes away comes back and asks if we have confirmation email with us – Ive never been asked for that before so havent bothered but did definitely read the email!
Third, loads of kids – OK it’s friday at 5:45 but ….. its a kid fest – running around, loud – gah!
Fourth, i ordered a shandy as driving – the look of not being able to make a mint out of us through the alcohol order was priceless
Fifth, the food – bland bland bland. The most boring buffet selection ever. Granted there were two lamb curries – but no way to tell the difference – they tasted the same. The bombay potatoes were hard. The dessert selection was pitiful – one cake, one indian dessert which was tasteless (which would put a lot of people off a nice indian dessert), fruit salad (very nice tho!) and the kids asking for ice cream as no way to get your own.
It just seemed as if the buffet was an annoyance.
£23.80 for the two of us, which considering we were in and out in less than an hour was awful. Avoid unless you like a bland curry and have kids.
EDIT: This is now Cook and Indi’s World Buffet.
