Absolutely lovely meal and the banquet night is great value. Will definitely be going back.
Visited on a Wednesday evening and it was very quiet. They have special deals on Tuesdays apparently which attract more people. Food was nice but not remarkable, could have done with a bit more heat. We shared chicken tikka and onion bhaji to start, don't remember the mains but peshwari naan was nice.
Not being lovers of spicy food and a vegetarian, we were really delighted with the food here.
We tried dishes we had not eaten before and cleared our plates! Staff were attentive and pleasant and it was excellent value moneywise. Will definitely go again.
This restaurant is very clean and bright ,staff were very attentive ,the food was great and we would definitely be eating here again.
We needed a place on short notice to have a goodbye meal with one of our foreign colleagues. He decided the menu looked nice, and we tried it. I have to say, it was well worth the try. The service was great, the food was fantastic, and they thanked us for coming when we left. You can't get much better than that.
The food and service was great. The staff very attentive and all the customers received a complementary drink on the house and red rose for all the ladies. There was a mistake on our bill which I pointed out to the waiter. The manager apologised and took £7 off as a guesture of good will. The meal and service was so good though that we insisted on paying the bill as it should have been and left our ususal 10% tip. This was our first visit to the restaurant but many of the diners appeared to be regulars. We will certainly be going back in the very near future.
Good fresh food in a nice atmosphere very friendly staff would definitely recommend this restaurant and I will be returning soon.
Kouchin has no airs and graces, simple decor and is not in the centre of the flesh pots of Europe - but boy is it good !
The food was superb, the interaction with the owner/manager really made it for us. Great recommendations of what goes with what and also what not to have meant that the final blend was just what we wanted.
Well done Kouchin
With stylish presentation, delicately flavours and silky sauces, Kouchin's menu includes poplar curry house favourites, but its their ‘Connoisseurs Choice’ of unique dishes which catch the eye. Kouchin's ‘Dom Phukt’ cooking tradition dates back to the days of they Moghuls - but with addition of modern panache.
I'd recommend Grilled Seabass Fillet with roasted pickling spices @ £12.95; Tawa Duck Breast marinated in garlic, ginger, mustard, coriander & honey then grilled on a tawa. Served with stir fried rice, noodles & a medium spiced sauce for £11.95, in soft cheese & saffron - with a crunchy crisped skin, but succulent pink flesh @ £12.95; or the Lobster In Goan Masala of coconut, star aniseed for £25.95.
Kouchin is a small friendly restrauant off the main high street in Ashford. It is one of at least five in the town but it consistently serves good quality food placing it above many of the others. The staff are friendly and welcoming and very attentive. The menu is very comprehensive including the old favourites, plus specialities such as chicken cooked with whiskey. Unlike many restaurants it does not skimp on the quantity of meat especially in dishes using relatively expensive meat such as duck
