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

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

We ordered three different starters which to be honest were very poor excuses for indian food. we all had various meat baltis for main courses and all of them were nicely flavoured but were far to hot and in the end none of us could finish them, I have eaten baltis all over britain and have never been unable to...

Enjoyed the food but service was a bit mediocre. Fish curry is a must and the nan is incredible. Very reasonable price wise. I would go back as the taste buds almost demand it.

Thoroughly enjoyed my first (sit in) trip to Rishi's. Friendly service, warm ambiance and very tasty Indian food. We came on a Sunday night with no reservation and was seated immediately. Worth a visit!

I ate here recently with my family and what a treat it was. The whole experience reminded me of happy times in Southern India. As a vegetarian family we had loads of choice and everything was delicious. One of my grandchildren had the kid's Dosa, the presentation made us all smile, and especially him. The service was friendly and attentive,... More
