We came here, for an 18th and we went upstairs to the function room. The room was clean and the food was lovely. However, before hand they told us the price but when we had finished our meal. They charged us more than what we originally booked as. I would not return, but luckily it's closing down

I decided to go on a search for the most authentic keema peas and eventually I went back to an old haunt - The Asia! You didn't disappoint truly great and the chicken chat was an added bonus. Staff made you feel very welcome and the waitress was excellent . Will be back soon.

Badly served not hot. Service terrible. Absolutely big staff shortages Place scruffy. Toilets disgusting and carpet on stairs dangerous and threadbare. Forced to have a tab... More

Very poor. All the way from the food through to the service. Incredibly over priced. Curry naan rice and kebab £29. I was gobsmacked.

Had a meal at the Asia with my partner, the food and service was fabulous, atmosphere great, my only concern would be that the toilets, both gents and ladies need a serious update ASAP.

I attended a xmas party at The Asia recently and I must say it was pretty poor. First of all there was no beer on draught, and when suggested I'd have 2 bottles of beer for the price of a pint, they were not interested. Then we get onto the food. There is not a lot I can say about... More

This wonderful family-run restaurant is a highlight of every trip back up North. I've eaten and loved "Indian" food for all of my adult life (40+ years) and both in the UK and in New York, but I don't think I've ever had better than Asia, in my own home town of Rochdale, it's the highlight of every trip back...

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.

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.
