I was at this banquet hall for our work Christmas party. My first impression when walking in was positive-beautiful entry way and banquet rooms. As the evening progressed, the manager and staff's lack of professionalism began to surface.

From a customer's point of view this place seems nice with all the food,decor, and hospitality. But behind that facade is a very different story. My name is Moshe D. I'm a Albanian DJ and have deejayed at over 80 venues and banquet halls

I find it difficult to understand some of the reviews, I think some people would have issues with whatever banquet hall they choose.\r

We had very bad experience with service provided by the service staff of the banquet hall. Though we paid $5.00 for each person for the table srevice FAMILY STYLE). The service staff very arrogant and
rude . The manager is also in the same category and indifferent to the customers complaints. We advise the every body intending customers to think before they decide to have their parties there.

Being of an Indian origin, I'm very picky about Indian food. This restaurant is my favorite because they come closest to the food I have had in good restaurants in India. Also if you tell them to make food spicy, they will make it right. It is a bit on the more expensive side but it's worth it in my opinion. The service is not the best but it's also not the worst. So I won't say it's a con. There aren't any windows in the restaurant so it's a bit of a different environment. The only con is that buffet food is not that great. It does not taste anything like the same dishes when ordered separately. So avoid that.

Pros: Awesome food

We had our wedding ceremony here (abt 100 ppl).. the banquet hall is beautiful and they did the decorations for us too which were really good.. but the service was PATHETIC.. despite clear instructions on how and when to distribute the food they totally messed it up and the entire while my aunt was in the KITCHEN ensuring that food and drinks were sent out in time! This offended some key personnel in the family and soured relations :(

Im not sure if they catered the food from their restaurant or elsewhere, but most ppl liked the food.. I didnt share that opinion but prob it was just the stress!

The banquet staff is height of rudeness. The service was unreliable and dishonest. The staff was so arrogant that it was difficult to have a decent conversation with them. I was attending the first birthday of my friend's daughter. It being such an important event, you would expect the parents to be happy after this event. But they were totally disappointed that they selected this place for such an important event. The service that was received was worst. So guys, if you don't want to spoil your celebrations stay away from this place by all means.

Though we haven't been to an event at the banquet hall, the Ashyana Banquet's restaurant, Shikara, is head and shoulders above any other Indian restaurant in the area (DuPage Co), and believe me, we've tried them all. The menu's not your run-of-the-mill Indian - it has the Korma's, Makhani's, Tikka Masala's, and many vegetarian dishes common to Indian restaurants but also has a significant number dishes that we've never seen at other places. Especially good is the Lamb Dahiwala, one of the best lamb curries we've ever had, and the seemingly simple Malai Chicken, which even our kids love, is never dry, and just melts in your mouth. Their fish curries offer unique Indian regional cuisines. We also love being able to get traditional South Indian dishes (Dosai's with sambhar and chutney) all under the same roof. Prices are moderate, though don't include rice. Portions are also moderate. Service is very good. They have a decent wine selection, which is hard to find at Indian restaurants. Our only gripe so far is that their samosa's are quite small, even if they are only a buck, and their menu has a couple errors with regards to dishes that contain nuts (we have a nut allergy). Also note that the weekend lunchtime buffet is highly recommended!

I absolutely DO NOT RECOMMEND this place!!! The facility is beautiful, but the staff is unreliable and service is not up to par. I would not do business here again. i have been to many banquet events in the past, and have hosted many as well, but I have never recieved such poor and dishonest service as I experienced at Ashyana. While the beautiful building may draw you in, the bad service is not worth it!

My [now] bride and I had a family engagement gathering of approx. 100 people during lunch. The food was great. We had vegetarian and non-vegetarian Indian food served buffet-style. One concern with buffet style service is "freshness" of the food and making sure that it's always hot--especially with Indian food. They did a great job with the food in all respects. They were also very accomodating in every aspect of setting up the event. The banquet rooms in general were very nice and, although it is a banquet hall (with a restaurant attached), it isn't very "banquethally." In other words, not tacky at all but a very classy look and feel. The cost is also very reasonable. Tip: They will negotiate on their price; what's included in the price you pay; packages; etc.
