New Manager Gives Ashoka at The Mill Fresh Makeover and Appetising New Menu

It’s all change at Ashoka at The Mill as new manager Asha Bains Majhu has refreshed the popular family restaurant in Darnley on Glasgow’s southside with an extensive makeover, lending it a warm and inviting atmosphere while complementing its ever-popular buffet and pre-theatre menu with an appetising new Indian and European a la carte menu.

The Mill has always been a hot favourite for family dining – the adjacent Playzone is a magnet for kids and affords parents a rare chance for peace to enjoy their meal – whilst its mezzanine gallery area offers a more intimate setting for a romantic dinner for two served with linen napkins by twinkling candlelight, and the extensive refurbishment and new menu are already proving a great hit with diners.

Asha was appointed manager of Ashoka at The Mill following her recent marriage to Sandy Majhu, Director at Apple Harlequin Group, which oversees the operation of the popular Ashoka chain of restaurants.

She said, “I’m delighted that the changes we’ve been introducing to The Mill have won the approval of existing customers and are tempting new customers to sample the delights on offer in our fresh and friendly environment.

“While my family background is in the restaurant business, my own career background is in the caring profession – both as a midwife and for the Child Protection Unit – which is why managing The Mill appeals to me so much – it allows me an opportunity to combine my twin loves for food and kids!”

Overseeing the new menu are two new chefs– chef Hamlal and chef Akeel – specially recruited by Asha for their expertise and range of culinary skills.

In addition to such old favourites as Muglai Korma, Bhoona and Biryani, The Mill is now offering a selection of house specialities and regional classics such as: Chasni, Rogan Josh; Jalfrezi; Machi Malabari; Lahore Karahi and Himalayan Hot Pot. Meanwhile, a Tandoori selection featuring dishes barbecued in a traditional Tandoor oven, include Chicken Tikka, Tandoori Jhinga and Shaslik.

The Mill offers a variety of eating options, from the renowned Ashoka buffet to home-style and desi dishes and from a la carte to takeaways and deliveries.

Meanwhile the popular Mill Room – available for a variety of business and social functions, from weddings, birthday parties, karaoke and Hen Nights to corporate conferences and board meetings – has not missed out on the makeover. The appealing space has been fully refurbished to exceed the expectations and requirements of event organisers.
