Went to the restaurant to celebrate my birthday, staff were very attentive and helped to explain the different foods on the menu. All the food was nicely presented and the staff were quick to clear away dishes etc. Food was to a very high standard and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Have no hesitation on a return visit in the... More

Despite the food being fairly good the dining experience was really below par. Service was slow and it took nearly 90 minuets to get our food despite the restaurant being empty. We were also overcharged by £50 which we luckily noticed, as a result of the bill being added up incorrectly. A real shame

The food , if a little over priced was delicious and well prepared , although in appearance looked lacking in quantity but proved to be the... More

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.
