Been here once and already love the place. both of our curries were fantastic, really great flavours and the perfect meat to sauce ratio and also good vegetarian options. I'm normally a poppadum guy, and don't really eat naans, but the garlic naan was so tasty, I'm converted to a naan eater! Even the pickle tray was full of flavour,... More

We had promised ourselves a curry all week. My wife had the chicken tikka marsala, while I had the shahensha balti. Both were excellent, as was the service we received - very attentive. Good to see that they offered beers from the local Hull Bricknell Brewery. They're a micro brewery, offering a range of very interesting beers. Good to see... More

Tasty meal, good service with authentic cuisine. What more could you ask for? Pleasant welcome from attentive staff. Nothing seemed too much trouble. We will be going again.

Food is always authentic. Service is excellent. The atmosphere seems to be improving also, as does the wine list! Can't wait to return. I had the king prawns and my husband had lamb. We both enjoyed it. The best Indian in Hull! Never had a bad meal. Well done! (Only improvement would be music).

Last Saturday i went out to take my beautiful wife on our 17 years anniversary. I took my wife to Alishaan and it was our first time visiting this restaurant. The food was great and the service was good. It was a great anniversary and an enjoyable night which my wife and i enjoyed. Will be visiting back.

So I have been before with family and the food is great don't get me wrong how ever this time I visited with my other half and to say I felt like an annoyance is putting it nice. As I don't tend to eat meat or creamy food I opted for ordering the spiced salad with two other side dishes.... More

Lovely decor, cutlery, and one very nice waiter but the food was terrible. It started badly with a stale oil taste to the poppadoms and the Kingfisher beer was sulpherous. The main courses were completely tasteless and mushy, one was beige with a square of what seemed to be processed cheese floating on the top, the other was supposed to... More
