    Beautiful location, about a 10 minute drive from the centre of Ashford. The food was delicious, cooked fresh & very tasty Nepalese dishes. Generous portions, great presentation & reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend!

    The food on the whole was lovely. However, one dish was not liked by our group and the waitress was not interested and did not offer to exchange it or ask if they would like to order something else even though it was obvious they had not touch the food which I felt was very poor especially as we had paid over £50 a head.

    Loved the food and surroundings, very quiet. Basically a posh Indian with slightly higher prices, but the food is great.

    Koyla was started around the onset of Covid and has understandably really battled to start up again and get noticed. The venue has easy parking and the ambience is intimate and personal. We have eaten there repeatedly since being told by a professional chef friend, it was the best meal taken there in the last 2 years. One might pay a few more pounds for a meal which is second to none, which speaks for itself. Where else can you get an authentic goat curry. Try it; you will not be disappointed.

    We loved the food especially the baked squash and biriyani. Puri Pani was something new to us too. The service was impeccable and definitely a really great quality experience. Highly recommended and we will definitely return.

    The food at Koyla was excellent however we were given a table around the corner from other diners which lacked atmosphere. The waitress did move us to another table in the main restaurant when one came free without being asked so obviously considered the area where we were sitting to be less desirable. Our drinks came quickly and our order taken. We then waited over an hour for our first course to arrive and were absolutely starving. This had a knock on effect of eating our main course late and we were last to leave the restaurant at 10.30 having arrived promptly for our table at 7.30. It was a birthday celebration and Koyla had been highly recommended to me so I felt disappointed by the management of our eating experience which at £99 for 2 courses and 3 drinks each was on the pricey side.

    The service was amazing here, the waitress explained every dish in detail and answered any questions we had without making us feel silly. We all had different dishes and they were all excellent. 4 clean plates said it all. Will definitely be back.

    We had a really lovely meal at Koyla. 5 Stars ! The staff were attentive but not intrusive, the atmosphere was relaxed yet refined and not at all like a traditional Indian style restaurant more of a refined dining feel, with tasteful decor & music. The Piece de résistance was the food which eas exceptional! Very flavoursome, spicy but not to hot! We will be returning

    Our first time to this restaurant. Excellent food and service, we look forward to returning and trying the other dishes on the menu. The house red is an Indian Syrah called Sula which we have had before. It is excellent and compliments this food.
