Enticing smells waft from city centre curry house Rishi’s Indian Aroma. Present in Aberdeen for the previous four years, the Glasgow branch launched in January 2013 following a hunt for the right premises – and an Edinburgh restaurant is in the pipeline for next year. The emphasis is on South Indian specialities such as dosas, idlis and vadas but a vast menu includes thalis, chicken, lamb and prawn madras, korma, patia and rogan josh. The restaurant offers weekday pre-theatre and lunch menus and free dosas on Mondays and Tuesdays. Cutting into a starter of mysore bonda reveals a colourful treat of bright carrot mixed with potato. The ennai katharikai kuzhambu (aubergine curry) is one of the spicier dishes but has a warm spice infusion rather than an unpleasant fire to it. With a modern and stylish décor of orange, cream and grey and a central location on busy Bath Street, Rishi's is shaping up to be a serious rival for other South Indian specialists in town.
