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

Bah to the naysayers! Some of the recent reviews almost put me off returning to Rishi's. I am glad they did not. The meal I had on Saturday evening with a group of friends was as good as ever. The quality of food is high. Rishi's still serve the best Indian food I've had in Aberdeen. The only slight quibble... More

The atmosphere was very "Indian", food was excellent and the portions were big enough. Service was a bit slow but maybe it was because the restaurant was totally full.

Picked up a take-away from Rishi's this evening - lamb rogon with pilau rice and a garlic naan. While the portion quantity was fine, the sauce was rather "watery" and a bit heavy on salt. Cost was ok at just under 14 pounds, but I probably won't rush back

Very good Indian food with reasonable price. Sometimes service is slow because it's full. But overall good food.
