The main reason we were so impressed was the staff here were incredibly friendly and efficient, we think he was the boss, but one member of staff made... More

Another delicious meal at Alishaan. I often customise my dish and nothing is ever too much trouble. Congratulations on winning the curry house of the year award. Well deserved
