I found this place almost by accident as I was walking down George Street to go elsewhere. It was on a Monday night so we assumed it would be really quiet - wrong ! The place was full, and we had to wait a few minutes until a table became free. I would estimate that 75% of the customers were... More

Disappointed with our second visit to rishis. Starter arrived within five minutes but still waiting for main course 55 minutes later...no exaggeration. Manager did seem to be sincerely apologetic. I won't be returning here in a hurry to be honest. Jewel in the Crown Aberdeen from now on. Always stick to what's best lesson learned!

One of the best Indian restaurants I've ever visited. We managed to get a table early on a Saturday evening despite not booking, but we were lucky as it was extremely busy. The restaurant itself is large, bright and modern, with tables laid out in random order. Not a piece of flocked wallpaper in sight! The menu includes the biggest... More

This is good value and more than you might expect. Comfortably spaced out tables not crammed in like some Indian Restaurants. We were here on a Monday evening in early July and it was busy. The patrons were a diverse mix of graduating students, Indian sub-continent family, Norwegians, Chinese and town residents. The food is South Indian not a huge... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant, its always packed, so you really need to book in advance. The service is excellent as is the food. Its extremely reasonably priced & the waiters are friendly & always give advice. When ordering our waiter told us that one of the dishes was very hot & he was right, he also... More

Rishi's is our local indian restaurant in aberdeen and we are so lucky that it is. We have had plenty of takeaways from here and to say it's delicious is an understatement. It is great quality of food for a reasonable price and I would really recommend it to everyone. Our Indian friend advised us on what to order that... More

I have been to Rishi's a few times now and it has been great every time. The food portions are very generous, especially the rice or the naan bread - none of us could ever finish an entire curry with rice single handedly so it was nice to be able to take some home for later. The food is also... More
