Good value authentic food

I've been here several times and always found it good value. The portions are substantial and each dish tastes distinctive as it should. It is far from just generic curry. I've never managed to need, or have room for pudding. The service was a little slower than usual tonight, but that isn't... read more

Great restaurant with a wide variety of food. Place to go to try something a bit more traditional as well as everyone's favourite.

I've ordered takeaway food from here a good few times and it's never the same. I ordered Lamb Balti last weekend and it was amazing. tonight I ordered the same dish and it was practically inedible. A bit of consistency would be nice!!!

Stopped by to have a quick bite on a Saturday afternoon, the place had just three other tables occupied, but the waiter seemed that he would rather be somewhere else. Food was good, and authentic, however the ambience was not great with music being far too loud. Not the greatest experience.

Though food quality is alright, they seriously need a lesson on service. It took 30 minutes and 1 course to get us water. We ordered water the first thing. Looks like they have all the time with them, unfortunately many customers dont.

These guys are racial. When an people from Asia come, they dont care. When local folks visit, they have preferential treatment. Disgusting.had to wait 2 hrs for a ravva dosa.

The food is nice but they have the worst customer service in town!! A simple request is treated with such rudeness that I absolutely hated my dining experience. This has happened 3 times so after giving them 2 more chances I am never coming back!!

I've been to Rishi's twice - the first to check it out, the second because I was dragged. While the food is good, the service leaves something to be desired. The first time, I ordered a jug of lassi so that I would be able to enjoy it for the duration of the meal, and sadly it took about 30... More

Went again with friends on a Friday night; again, wide selection of food, and all of it was good. I would say the atmosphere/surroundings are probably not like most of the (overpriced) restaurants in Aberdeen - however, please don't let this put you off. The food is good, and that is what I go here for. (Several Indian friends from... More
