Great Decor

Myself and friends visited here for a good catch up on a Saturday night. The service was slow, however the food was really nice when it did arrive. One of the nicest Indians in the area if not the nicest. We will be back

This restaurant is beautifully decorated and the staff provided a very good service. The food did taste very nice but some of the dishes were mostly sauce with not much content, the nut pilau didn't have any nuts in it and the naan breads all tasted very similar even though they were supposed to be totally different flavours. I would... More

We looked for a pub or restaurant locally to St. Godrics church where our grandchildren were being christened . We regularly use Alishan's and approached the management with a view to holding the christening party for forty as a private function which they were more than happy to do. Firstly they arranged three menus , one which included English dishes,... More

We booked a very large table for my Son's 21st birthday. We went for a set meal and everything worked out fine. The service was good and the food was deciduous. There was also no rush to get us out of the restaurant after the meal was finished even though it was well past closing time. The place is ideal... More

Me and my two friends dined at this restaurant on Saturday January 3rd and were very impressed. From the welcome on arrival to the good bye on departure and everything inbetween it was a great experience. We all three stated that it was the best Indian food that we have ever had and that's saying something when we are all... More

Second year running the team have visited Alishaan and it has improved on last year, which is quite a feat given that last year was excellent. We all went straight for a main (thoroughly recommend the Rangela Khana which is absolutely delicious) they seated eleven of us with zero fuss and the waiters were all courteous, efficient and accomplished.
