We have been going to the Shenai for a while now and the food is always really good. We tend to go mid week when it's a little quieter and the service is fine but it can be a little slower if they get a big party in or a lot of tables are booked. People have mentioned maybe staff... More

The Shenai is very smart and modern inside. The tables aren't too crowded together and the staff are very helpful in assisting in menu choices for someone who hasn't experienced Indian food before. The owner is a very nice gentleman and adds the personal touch to the visit. The food is excellent both in presentation and quality. The restaurant feels... More

We've both: dined out at the Shenai as well as have ordered takeaway. In both cases food was really nice, service decent and beer cold (when dining in). It's a family / toddler friendly place.

A decent curry house (and I see enough to know the good ones from the others). Good value. Good range of 'the usual' Indian food plus some specialities. Service a little sporadic - they were rather slow to take an order, and bring drinks, but then a little over-attentive when the food was there - you only need to ask... More

Family visiting and wanted to have an "Indian", so chose Shenai as this has been on my to-do list for some time now. Welcoming staff on arrival, a familiar face in the line-up as well which bode well. Good service, even if a bit of delay between ordering and first course, they seemed to be concentrating on the take-aways, but... More

Been loads of times over the years and the quality has stayed consistent.- BUT - last visit I was rather disapointed that for 3 of us, we paid £62.60 for a rather large amount of potato!

Been using this restaurant for a good numbers of years. Unfortunately the service has slipped since our last visit. Can't help but think that some waiter training may help. Leaning across customers instead of walking around the table, clearing tables whilst people at the table are still eating and splitting a £99.75 bill 50/50 and making it 45:25 & 54:50... More

We visited here for my husband's surprise birthday meal. I took banners, table confetti etc. earlier in the day which they were happy to put up. We were a party of 26 and considering the amount of us service was good. They got a few things wrong with the order but personally I thought that was acceptable especially, as food... More
