Loved the restaurant...spacious seating area, but the food and service were average for the price we paid. We hadn't hooked and we're lucky enough to get a table.

This place seems to get 5 stars or 1 stars. I'm in the latter camp, picked up a take away, food looked fine, but absolutely tasted of nothing, which I imagine is quite hard to do with the wide variety of spices used in indian cooking. Strange one. Not cheap either. And I know dal is supposed to be a... More

The place looks great from outside, very nice and spacious inside with well laid out tables. The menu was big, too big in fact, too much choice & I suspected they were trying to do too much. I was right because the kebab starters were dry & bland, the curry very bland, I added loads of salt to get some... More

Great location. Excellent choice of Indian food including the "Thali" not a common restaurant meal option. Helpful staff guides you to your taste. Spacious.

We had a nice dinner at Alishaan they have a good range of Starters and mains also House Specialities. The service was good a little expensive as others reviewers have stated but on the whole we would return again if in Durham.

I was delighted with the meal I had here as I had slight reservations given some mixed reviews. The staff were very friendly and seemed very knowledgeable about the variety and different strengths of the meals on the menu. The starters were very enjoyable , opted for poppadoms , onions and mixed chutneys. All pretty standard but very fresh and... More

As an honorary Glaswegian, it’s very difficult to impress me when it comes to Indian food. Glasgow is blessed with the best curry houses in the UK bar none. Most people that visit the city would agree with this sentiment. So when I travel, my expectations for good Indian food are generally suppressed. If the food is ok then my... More

My husband and I called into this restaurant as we were in Durham for a few days. We were not disappointed, the food was lovely, I had lamb shank absolutely delicious just too much of it to finish. My husband also thought his was lovely and was very well presented. The staff were very courteous and came over at least... More

Pre booked a table for two with the mrs and when we went in we were asked to wait in the takeaway area even though our table was ready. Waited for 5 mins then seated. Another 15 to be asked for drinks and 45 mins from being seated to taking our order!! When taking the order my wife (vegetarian) asked... More
