No visit to Salisbury is complete without a visit to the Shah Jahan, our go-to Indian restaurant in the city. On our most recent trip we were pleased to see that standards have been maintained and that the prices are still reasonable, even thought the restaurant has had a few face-lifts over the years and is now almost a posh...

Place was packed but they still managed to find us a table. Service was a little slow but we were not in a hurry. Thought the prices were a bit adventurous but when the food came this thought melted away. Excellent food and easily one of the best Indian meals I have ever had. The fusion of spices was divine.

My husband and I went here for a Saturday night dinner and the restaurant was heaving. Nonetheless we had a lovely welcome and the service thoughout was friendly if a bit slow due to their being so busy. The menu was interesting and offered a number of dishes that I had not come across before, as well as all the... More

I'm not overly enthused by blue and purple lighting in Indian restaurants. There was something of a mis-match here, whereby the wall lights each glowed a different colour and the general furnishing was a bit 'mdf'. That said, the important thing is the food and company. Company aside (that's always good), the food was nice; my lamb shashlick was a... More

Went on a Friday evening with my 10 year old, food was very nice and the service excellent. On the downside, portions were small and prices were high. I know salisbury is an affluent area but the markup on the food was a little High! On the other hand my picky son finished his meal and gave it 5/5!!

We visit on a regular basis but tonight I especially was disappointed. 3 out of 4 curries arrived and I was told mine would follow. Naan bread arrived and the other 3 dished their curries up. I was still waiting for mine. They started eating and I had eaten half my rice and bombay potatoes. After nearly 5 minutes mine... More

I always find it difficult to review Indian restaurants as it is not a favourite cuisine of mine, mostly due to some of the truly dire curries I've had over the years. Shah Jahan does tend to be our preferred place for a curry in Salisbury and the service and menu are pretty good. I enjoyed my meal - papadoms... More
