The restaurant is named by the emperor Ashoka. You can see a brief summary down.

As many other Indian kings, Ashoka was also a lover of the Indian food.


The great Indian emperor, Ashoka, was born in 265 B.C. He was the grandson of Changragupta Maurya and he ruled over an empire that covered two-thirds of the Indian sub-continent. He was the most famous of Mauryan kings and was one of the greatest rulers of India.


The capital of the empire was in the city of Pataliputra (modern day Patna), where Buddha had lived as well.


Emperor Ashoka was very courageous and a good administrator. Though, he was the younger son of the king he was given the throne after the king's death because he was loved and respected by his public and by the ministers. In 268 B.C., Ashoka was crowned as the king of Magadha.

After 8 years of being crowned the king, Ashoka decided to annex Kalinga(Orissa) into his kingdom. This was the first and last battle that Ashoka ever fought. Though, Ashoka won the battle he was horrified by the death of so many soldiers.


This experience changed him and he swore that he would never wage war again. He took-up Buddhism, and he vowed to practice only virtuous actions in the future. After instructions by members of the Buddhist community, Ashoka began to resemble the ideal leader, promoting prosperity and peace within society. He religiously followed the principles of Buddhism – truth, charity, kindness, purity and goodness.


Ashoka also asked his followers to take the path of virtuous action. He believed in non-violence and banned the sacrifice of animals. Besides this he opened clinics for birds and animals too. His good work earned him the name of Devanamapriya Priyadarshi.


He also propagated Buddhism by engraving it’s principles on pillars throughout his kingdom. The Ashoka pillars, as they are now called, were over 40 feet high and extremely heavy. He also attempted to spread this religion to Syria, Egypt and Macedonia, and sent his son Mahendra and daughter Sangamitra to Sri Lanka for this purpose.


Ashoka died in 232 B.C. and is amongst the greatest rulers in the history of the Indian Subcontinent and he is respected for being the ‘Ideal’ ruler.
