Were visiting the restaurant with friends. We were 7 people total, all ordering different things. It was only a very short wait until the food was on the table. Service was first class and so was the food. I can highly recommend this place if you want a good Indian :)

Food was served quite quickly, as soon as we finished out popadums out came our main meals, which in itself made the visit better than most indian restaurants where 20 minute waits are almost the norm. Food was excellent as all seven of outr... More

Shampaan is my go to Indian takeaway restaurant. Tonight I waited nearly 2 hours for delivery which I expected as it's NYE. However the food had no flavour and was like warm it's as if it had been re heated but not properly. Needless to say I won't order from there again.

Best Biriyani ever! This ambiance is good and food is great. Only bad part is some bad fish waiter tried to copy my debit card...but great to see management worked to resolve and prevent further occurrences. Would recommend any day!

I frequently visit this restaurant when visiting my girlfriends family. I have never been disappointed with the food or the service as both are of a good standard. The only thing which lets this restaurant down in my opinion is the parking, It feels like your going off road when trying to park and the pot holes are not only... More

We were quite looking forward to this place as we'd had a recommendation and was informed it was a nice restaurant and served good food. However, as we arrived a group of 'suspected' travellers were in the front of the restaurant and the father of one of the children was screaming loudly at his child. I've no idea why but... More
