We booked a table and arrived on time, however upon arrival the welcoming was very poor, we explained we had a reservation but were told without explanation that "you need to wait there" and we're pointed to an area by the front door. There were plenty of tables free in the restaurant. We asked again and were again told "you... More

We loved the food at this restaurant, it was high quality and delicious. The service was relaxed and professional, with waiters bring your food out in a reasonable time and clearing dishes quickly. We didn't feel rushed, but were given just enough time between courses. The selection of food was different from some run of the mill Indian restaurants which... More

Not many Indian restaurants in the high street, looks nice from the outside, but let down by the food. Maybe trying too hard to cater for the European palate....dishes lacked the usual depth, a very bland meal, which you definitely don't expect from the genre. Wouldn't go again, shame really.

I have been here three times, and each time the food and service has been excellent. Although a little bit more expensive than most Indian/ Asian restaurants , it is worth the extra money. Huge choice and the staff are more than happy to guide you through the menu. A must if you are visiting Tonbridge for the evening. I... More

Having not been here for a while i decided to try Alishan for lunch yesterday. Having walked into the restaurant nobody seemed to be working there. After10 minutes I knocked on the kitchen door and a member of staff finally showed up. The restaurant was empty and the waiter/mamager clearly saw our visit as a nuisance. With no apology for...
