At least this visit we did get a meal! On a previous visit we were turned away by the immigration police! Still not sure what was going on but the restaurant was closed for the evening! However that was some time ago and we had high hopes given the reviews. They were apparently also very busy with a large party... More

Early evening dinner for 4. First visit. Ignore the rather tatty street front facade and clues to a previous life as a Chinese restaurant. Head right through to the relaxed restaurant at the back. Polite and efficient staff and a huge menu - including Dosas! The Dosa starter was exceptionally good - light, delicous and freshly made. Generous mains of... More

Visited here with work colleagues. At first glance, the menu seemed to have a few items on it which don't appear on the standard bill of fare in most British Indian restuarants. We entrusted the choice of dishes to our colleague who knows the restaurant, and shared a range of dishes. All were excellent and, unlike many restuarants where most... More

Asking a restaurant to serve a 2 course dinner for 32 people is usually a bit of a challenge - but Rishi's more than rose to this challenge. We had pre-ordered our main courses and the starters were their choice - but this did not affect the quality of the meal we enjoyed. We had a separate alcove of 3... More

We consider this restaurnat the best Indian in town and the only one that served dosa. It is so good we even order in when we are too lazy to visit in person.

I had heard lots of glowing reports about Rishis, but having been accustomed to Indian food down Sarf, I thought it wouldn't amount to much. WRONG. ( and I have been to other Aberdeen Indians, which were quite frankly really off the mark) Totally delisch and authentic - but the best was dosas. Oh my goodness. They were good, they... More

We have been to Rishi's many times. It is always busy and the food is always excellent, and especially good for vegetarians. Great range of classic and non-classic Indian foods. Their dosas are a speciality that are worth a try, particularly with the side of sambar. Have never had a garlic curry before, but it was very tasty. Also incredibly... More

My boyfriend and I came here last night for some dinner, it is a beautiful restaurant With great service. Our starters were amazing and the main course was nice too, although I ordered a Madrass which didn't have much spice to it and had to send it back for more chillies but saying that I do usually go for a...

Fantastic dosas are a feature of this restaurant. I can't vouch for any other dishes because I go to Rishi's specifically for the dosas. My family, friends and I have dined here many times and all of us think that the dosas are the best in Aberdeen. I have tasted most of the choices and have not been disappointed. Fantastic... More
