that was the worst takeaway we have ever had. nan breads were over cooked underneath hard and crunchy, chicken was fatty and chewy, chips were cold and greasy and they forgot our mango chunky. will not be ordering from shiplu again and would not recommend to friends and family.

The 5 course meal Special (Sunday & Thursday) was perfect when we visited on Sunday 6 July 2014. Great Value at £10:95 especially the onion bhaji, garlic nan and Vegetable jalfrezi (recommended). Busy on this date and we were lucky to get a table - popular but not too noisy just friendly. Recommended. Enjoy.

The outside of this restaurant is a bit uninspiring on a slightly seedy street, but inside it is very pleasant and welcoming. There is a good selection of typical meals and a few unusual specials. We chose the set menu for two. All the dishes were delicious, the naan was about the best we have ever had and there was... More

Have used this restaurant for many years, and consider it the best Indian in Hastings. Whether you eat in or take away the food is always fresh and tasteful. Be carefully if you intend to eat there at the weekend as it gets very busy, so recomend that you book.

Food and service were very good. I have heard it is not the place to go on a Saturday as you have to wait for ages. Very comfortable.

Four of us went along to the Thurs buffet evening - £10 for 4 courses (king prawns £1.50 extra) the restaurant was quite busy - but the service & food were both excellent! We're now going to try a takeaway! Not in a very salubrious part of Hastings but the food more than compensates for the surroundings!
