I first visited the Alisha twenty years ago, on the week that it opened. It still has the same proprietor, which I think speaks volumes.Living a couple of streets away and not eating out locally that much, I haven't been there a lot recently, but when I have gone there, perhaps if someone is visiting me, I have never been...

After a few beers at the excellent Past and Present micropub in Skinner Street, a curry on restaurant row in Canterbury Street seemed a logical conclusion to the evening. At the Alisha, the menu read as if it hadn't been changed since the 1970s. All the old favourites and wines that we drank before we knew better - Liebfraumilch and... More

Thursday and Sunday they offer a special priced meal deal which is excellent value for money. Booking would be advised for peak times as the restaurant only has about 30 seats. On street parking is a... More

We came here for my sister-in-law's birthday, there were eight of us in total but we did feel slightly crammed into such a small space! The waiter who served us was an older gentleman who quite frankly was rude and ignorant and just wanted us to hurry up and magically order the second we sat down - he ignored several... More

PARKING is ok after 18:30 when parking restrictions are lifted . there are parking bays and single yellow lines on the main road and you may also find parking down some of the side roads. that being said it is busy and you may have to drive around a...
