Visit Date : Monday 2nd January 2017
This is now my second visit to Rishi’s Indian Aroma Glasgow Restaurant, you can take a look at my previous review here
Just like the last time the atmosphere was very nice, the music wasn’t too loud and the staff were very attentive.
Tonight was a nice dinner outing with good friends.
Rishi’s Family dosa £19.95
5 foot long Crisp dosa can feed a family accompanied with Potato masala, Paneer, variety of Chutney & sambar
The dosa as you can see filled the table from end to end, and to its side you can see some of the dips and extras it comes with.
This was my first time trying a Dosa, it was very nice and the dips that came with it were nice and added to the flavour. Next time I would maybe order the small one rather than the family one, but yeah I would have this again.
Gobi Manchurian £5.45
Vegetarian alternative with Cauliflower to Nelson Wang’s Creation.
I recently tried this at my last visit at Chaakoo Bombay Cafe, and really liked it so I thought I would try it here to see how they make it.
The cauliflower was not as crispy as Chaakoo, and this was a little more spicy. This was also very nice, and I liked Rishi’s take on this.
Again I would be happy to have this again, and please do give this a try if you come here.
Overall I had a really good night, we had lots of laughs and a lot of nice food.

What a shocker you’re saying or “does he go anywhere else”….and to answer that its a yes but this is becoming one of my fav places to go when I am out.
I had arranged with 3 of my friends to go to Chaakoo, two have never been and the other has once with me before.
As always the staff were very welcoming and again the atmosphere was really nice, do check out my other reviews here as I do review different food etc.
Hope you’re sitting down……tonight’s visit I have kept my promise and tried different dishes.
Chicken Lababdar £5.95
Lababdar is Hindi for soft & creamy, this chicken tikka dish is cooked in a rich brown onion gravy & butter sauce with capsicums, tomatoes & cream, in the traditional Andhra style.
This was a complete “lets see what this is like”, never had this and anytime I have been in Chaakoo with anyone they have never had this.
I am glad I tried this, it was very nice and the tikka and the cream sauce was perfect. I kept the chicken in the dish, and found it very large and difficult to cut up etc so next time I would put it on a plate as I feel that would be better.
This is one I would have again.
Ok so before I move on to my next two dishes, you need to know I am not a salad or a vegetables guy. Put them down in front of me and they will not get touched, two things I really hate.
That being said the next two dishes are very healthy and dishes I wouldn’t normally order….ok ok I did have the Paneer the last time but still it counts for this visit.
Saag Paneer £5.95
(V) a classic jalfrezi dish of spiced spinach, studded with cubes of creamy fried paneer cheese.
What can I say this is a very nice and light dish, its good flavour and one I will have again.
Gobi Manchurian £3.95
(V) Calcuttan fried cauliflower, garlic, chilli & ginger.
Ok so if someone said here have some cauliflower I would say no thanks, but my last visit with Emma and Wendy this dish was had and it looked nice.
I am so glad I tried this, this was amazing the flavour was good and the crunchiness of the cauliflower added to it.
MIRCH & CHOKALET
Cocchi Torino, Arbikie chilli vodka, fresh orange, nutmeg, egg white — Sweet with subtle spice and the texture of a cloud
I have to have a cocktail when I am out, and yes I had this last time but its a good one. This was a little freebie tonight so thanks again Denny 🙂 cheers
MANGO LASSI £3.75
The Mango Lassi has always been a favourite of mine when I go to an Indian restaurant, and last time when I tried it here i was very disappointed. It was too icy and not enough flavour, but I had heard this had been improved so I thought lets see.
This was more like it, texture was perfect, sweet and full of flavour this was a perfect Mango Lassi the way it should be 🙂
Overall another perfect evening, and my friends all enjoyed the food and the night. Please do check out my other reviews for here, and please do visit Chaakoo you wont regret it.
