We eat here on a regular basis the food and service is spot on. I had the paneer mirch and lamb jalfrezi. They were both so tasty and the lamb was so tender. Well worth a visit.

I have been to Alishaan on numerous occasions and every time I have been extremely impressed! The staff are very professional, very well trained and very friendly... The level of service here is second to none! And the food, the food is to die for! My favourite cuisine is Indian and I am yet to find another Indian restaurant that... More

Food was disgusting and bland, no taste. Missing food from our order however still charged and overpriced, £35 for a meal that didn't impress. Don't recommend.
