My wife and I have been regulars for some time. When it came to choosing somewhere to have our full family meal before we emigrate to Australia there was only one place we would choose. We asked for an Asian style Christmas dinner... they gave us tandoori full turkey cut next to the table; it was that fresh. Roast potatoes... More

Our local branch of CAMRA revisited the Asia after a very successful evening last year to celebrate our 40th anniversary. As before we had good service and excellent food. As we were a large group we had mixed starters and all had 4 different main dishes to choose from. Bottles of Ale would have made it an even better evening,

Visited the restaurant whilst in Rochdale on business, as it was recommended by the hotel I was staying in. Very nice food, and great, friendly service. Would eat here again.

Attended tonight with friends and waiter had filthy hands. Service poor and waiter hedonistic. Chicken red and raw when pointed out to waiter exchange for different curry after a conversation with manager. Who insisted that was restaurant quality. Rice soggy. Picked KFC up on way home.

Bad service, Asian man was very arrogant about me having a complaint. Over charged by man as I wasn't informed that I was also being charged for them to get a taxi here and back. Food was cold and chicken in curry was too hard to chew. The rice had consistency of rice pudding. Wouldn't even recommend it for my... More

I would like to once again applaud the staff at the Asia for surpassing themselves once again for a cracking night for my daughters 21st birthday party. My thanks again John Dolan I also would like to thank the person who made the Harry Potter Birthday Cake.

We didn't really consider anywhere else for my big 50th birthday dinner and family get together. Asia has the balance of great food and great atmosphere just right. If your in Rochdale, get to the Asia. If you fancy something different ask for the honey chicken, a dish invented by the chef.

I needed a meal, not just any meal, a meal to remember, a meal to share with close friends. I ordered what I consider to be the best meal in Rochdale. It was my holy trinity that no other restaurant offers: King Prawn Nariyal , Mutton Punjabi & Honey Chicken.... And not to forget Staff Rice and the kicker hot... More

I live in the Far East but make sure to visit this restaurant every time I come back to Rochdale. Why? Because the food here is simply stunning and consistently so. For me, this is about as good as it gets - and I've dined in Pakistan, too. If you want to be a little bit adventurous and try something... More

The Asia Is an institutional restaurant founded in 1981. We are not a bangladeshi restaurant, Our style of cooking is that of a pakistani homemade feel, we use the freshest herbs and the tenderest meats to create some magical yet authentic bespoke dishes. From Desi style curries to healthy grilled dishes we can cater for any palate.We offer both dine in or takeaway service and the restaurant is situated next to the new metrolink station at Rochdale train station.#Halal.
