I am from Tamil Nadu in South India, and we love our Dosas and Idlies! This restaurant was suggested to me by one of our Scottish colleagues who absolutely love this place. The trouble with Indian restaurants or any foreign restaurants is to match the expectations of their native people. Whilst I have been disappointed by several other Indian restaurants... More

I hosted a curry night here for a business organisation and the overall impression was good as the food was excellent (unique as far as I'm concerned - really amazing flavours!) as the other reviewers mention. They had told us they had private dining - hmmm, not so private as a couple of tables for two had been positioned in... More

Great selection. Good location. Good food and staff helpful. Two of the people at our table made the mistake of only ordering the spiciest food. Waiter suggested to offset with a mild rice. Alas they would not listen:) All very tasty!

Lovely food, excellent service, really surprising when the bill comes as it never seems to be as much as you expect. Thoroughly recommend.

Rishis is a very nice restaurant with great food, the staff are very friendly including the manager ram. i recommend people to visit rishis and not believe other people saying bad things about rishis. i recommend you visit and see for yourself how good rishis food is and how friendly the staff are. you will not be disappointed.

The ambiance and food presentation are not spectacular. The staff is very correct and the food is very good. I am missing the "Indian" atmosphere.

We recently eat here on a night out with friends and I was a bit nervous before going because Indian food is often too spicy for me. (And is often delivered at the speed of light). I was very pleasantly surprised as the dishes I selected were very tasty and not overwhelmed with spices and the service was well paced... More

Aberdeen's top curry house. Very good variety of North and South Indian food. The taste of the food is top class and I loved the Paneer Tikka. Only downside is that they accept only 2 cards per table which maybe inconvenient to a big party.

The food tastes alright at the restaurant but i have always had horrible experiences with deliveries. It doesn't seem as it is freshly made and have unpleasant odour. Bhajjis and vegetarians starters are uncooked, salty and very greasy. I dont think Asians would relish the food served here. The chutneys are stale. Spare yourself from a sore tummy

First let me say we ordered 'take away'. The restaurant was very busy on a Saturday evening and several customers were of Asian origin which is usually a good indicator that the food is either good or authentic. Food took about 25 minutes to arrive which was fine. Fish Fry was two tiny pieces of salmon cooked in spices -... More
