This is our go-to Indian restaurant. We love Shaan! The owner and the staff are always so friendly, and the food is always really good. Get the samosa chaat! We will continue to come here as long as we are in the area.

Was thrilled to find this little gem in Hyde Park. Lots of different options which change periodically. My husband and I went TWICE in one week after discovering it - now I'm taking friends and family. Service is always very friendly. See you again soon.....

Every time I have eaten here, the food has been good, and this time was no exception. But the ladies working were so rude. I know it was at the end of the lunch buffet, but it was still unacceptable for the staff to be...More

My fiancee and I recently moved to the Cincinnati area from Lexington, where we had tried our fair share of Indian restaurants. We both agreed that Shaan Indian Cuisine was one of the best we had either had the pleasure to try. We were seated...More
