Food is good - service is horrible

The food was good but much of it overpriced. Initial service was good, but then waitress disappeared, and the young teen-aged women left in her place were very disinterested, sitting at table doing homework and allowing us to wait 20+ minutes for our bill -- when there were no other customers in the restaurant -- and it was only presented once we requested it.

The food was very good. However, the service was very poor. They were not very attentive and were rude about the Groupon redemption. I was told that I must pay for the rice and bread ha normally is complimentary with my meal and scolded for trying to redeem using my iPhone. If they treated their customers properly, this place would be packed, because the food is that good. It's a very tough decision as to whether or not I return there.

The food is great but it was so empty!! I hope the restaurant stays around for a long time because there aren't many places around here to get Indian food. Sadly I think business would pick up dramatically if they relocated out of the city.

This restaurant is a joke, it is dirty and run down. It is way overpriced and clearly a rip off. If the good people of Reading knew what Indian food should taste like this place would have closed a long long time ago. Unfortunately they have the market cornered as there are no other options within 20+ miles.

I was unhappy to see that when I checked my bank statement the following day they added an additional $6.00 to the tip. Luckily I live local and went there and they gave me the $6 back cash. My suggestion would be to pay cash.

The items that were "not available" on the menu were not marked or told to us before we ordered. Maybe try to signify that they are not available.

Poor service. We were pointed to our table & left to sit without menus for quite awhile.Food was extremely bland. No flavoring except for salt. I ordered Fish Curry and had to send it back because it was raw in the middle. My husband ordered Paneer that arrived mushy and the dish was mostly overcooked spinach. Utensils and metal serving dishes felt greasy. The food had a slight metallic taste from the dishes and everything was heavy and oily. This food is nothing like what Indian food should taste like. We've had traditional food made by friends from India and the food from Aashiyana is old, watered down, and spice-less. I'm still surprised we didn't get sick. Dishes are way overpriced and the atmosphere is creepy. Seriously the worst restaurant food I've ever had. Stay as far away as possible.

From Our Editors

At the bottom of Aashiyana Fine Indian Cuisine's chimney sits a construction that has been the tool of Indian chefs for centuries: the tandoor. This traditional clay oven sears meat to its core with super-hot flames, turning chicken a signature bright-red color and transforming wayward snowmen into quivering pools of regret. Chefs drench these succulent morsels of tandoori meat with creamy curries and yogurt-based sauces, which they can customize to each guest’s preferred level of spiciness. Fluffy piles of wild-grain rice or buttery naan flatbread are available to escort entrees to the table, and the restaurant’s BYOB policy invites guests to bring their favorite brew or wine to temper the tingle of spice.

A short flight of stairs splits the dining room neatly in half, amplifying privacy by creating two intimate spaces. Maroon napkins folded into crown-like shapes await diners at each table, ready to flop into laps or adorn heads when the staff spontaneously knights you the Tandoori King.
