Award-winning Indian restaurant Asha’s is returning to the city this summer

With a colourful event, Asha’s will invite guests to join them in commemorating India’s 75th Year of Independence

Much-loved Indian restaurant Asha’s is ready to reopen on Peter Street, just in time to commemorate India’s 75th Year of Independence.

The award-winning Indian restaurant is also opening alongside a new stylish bar concept – The Peterman.

The Peterman Bar will sit within Forty-Seven, a luxury hotel that will also open this autumn within the Grade II-listed former shipping warehouse on Peter Street.

The 32-room hotel will offer a range of duplex and signature suites alongside The Peterman Bar and Asha’s Restaurant.

The restaurant is ready to welcome guests from Wednesday 10th August, and has now started taking reservations. 

Within its initial week of opening, the restaurant is also set to invite guests to be among the first to experience the next generation of Asha’s, as they host an exclusive event on Monday 15th August to commemorate India’s 75th Year of Independence. 

Asha’s offers a dazzling repertoire of dishes which showcase culinary innovation, and the restaurant promises to take diners on a voyage through India’s North-West frontier province – featuring lovingly made dishes inspired by Asha Bhosle’s life.

From humble beginnings in the hamlet of Goar, Eastern India, Asha’s journey took her to Mumbai and the pinnacle of Bollywood.

Celebrating her country’s rich cultural heritage, she created Asha’s – a global group of ground-breaking Indian restaurants, where some of the world’s finest chefs blend authentic flavours with a contemporary perspective to redefine Indian cuisine.

Commencing at 6pm, welcome drinks will be provided in The Peterman bar, a stylish haven of opulence and luxury.

Here, guests are also invited to take-in the traditional Indian music from Asha’s Dhol players and presented with beautiful Gajra flower garlands.

At 7pm, guests will be led through to Asha’s, where they will enjoy a three-course feasting experience, with delicious and flavourful dishes curated by Asha’s new head chef, Rajesh Bhatt.
