Visit Date : Saturday 18th June 2016
Currently, before trying here there was one Indian restaurant in Glasgow that I would recommend (Not tried them all yet, but a good amount). Rishi’s is now on my list as I really enjoyed it.
This visit was a special visit as it was an early birthday dinner for my friend, and Rishi’s was also recommended by our Indian friends as they found it very close to the way it should be.
Normally when I go out I stick to ordering the same things, but now I am trying different items and that’s what I did here.
There was a lot on the menu for my starter that I would have tried but I opted for the Methu Vadai.
Methu Vadai : Fried doughnuts made of urid dal, ginger, onion, curry leaves & green chilly with a soft centre & crunchy exterior, served with special chutneys & Sambar*
These were nice, and I am glad I tried them. After you have had one, the sauces are needed to add a little more flavour but this could just be me and my sweet tooth. One of my friends ordered the Dosa which looked really nice, and I tried a little and I would try this next time.
Chicken Chettinad with Coconut rice: A spicy Chettinad preparation, combining Ground coconut, curry leaves, fennel and sesame seeds. (spicy)
I was worried about ordering this since it said “spicy” as I am ok with just spicy and no more, and my normal dish is a korma. I found this very nice, and yes it was spicy but it wasn’t overpowering I lost all sensation.
Would I order this again…not sure as there was just a taste in it I wasn’t sure off, but now that I am doing more blogging I would try something else and review that.
Gulab Jamun : Fried dough soaked in sugar syrup.
This is my favourite to order anytime I go to an Indian restaurant, it’s a shame that you only get two balls as I could easily eat double that as it’s too nice….more so if you have a sweet tooth like me.
There were 5 of us this day, and I was pleasantly shocked at the cost of the bill as I found them to be very very reasonably priced. Normally what we paid for 5 is what I pay when it’s just 2.
If you like Indian food and have not tried it here please do as my first visit I was very impressed and will be going back.
