After a day out we fancied an Indian on our way home and popped into the Shahensha. This is the best Indian restaurant around! I couldn't decide what to order so the manager asked what type of thing I liked and said he would get the chef to make something especially for me as there were certain things I didn't... More

mr shah never fails to deliver on every level, food is really good, not too badly priced and the service is absolutely second to none, make sure you ask for the specials they don't show on the menu, these guys stop at nothing to give you a great meal. Highly recommended.

Really good food, incredibly tasty and good portion sizes. We went on a Saturday night, it was busy and there was a good atmosphere. Service was a little slow but I'd definitely go back.

Always accommodating, friendly and remember your faces. The take out is great too. Never manage to finish our dinner as there's always so much food

Such a disappointing visit to this restaurant. Very slow service - we were sat waiting for a good 30 minutes before we had the opportunity to order any poppadoms or drinks. (No apology from any of the staff for this!) On countless occasions the staff were very dismissive, abrupt and rude and we were made to feel very unwelcome. Food... More

We have been coming to this restaurant on and off for over 25 years. Food is consistently good and has always been our favourite compared with the various other Indian restaurants we have tried. Service is always prompt and attentive. My husband and I both ordered the Prawn Malabar and it was excellent along with all the side dishes. We... More

Despite booking we waited quite a while for a table and really we shouldn't have bothered. The service was awful, the staff were rude and couldn't give a damn about their customers. The food was very average at best, infact we left after the starters as we were so put off by the rudeness of the staff!! We went and... More

Fantastic food. Good service. Reasonably priced. Nice music but old classical. Flavour was tempting nd would come back.
