Great value meal on a Sunday

Go to the Shahjahan on a Sunday and you get a three course meal with sides for less than £12. The best thing about this option is that the portions are slightly smaller but the variety of dishes is greater, so you can enjoy a real feast for a bargain price. The service was prompt and attentive... read more

Service was appalling. We waited an hour and a half with no sign of any food, during which we were totally ignored by the waiter who was entirely lacking in the normal social graces that his job should involve; he seemed reluctant to acknowledge our presence or speak to us. He offered no apologies for bringing the wrong wine or... More

Whenever I visit Seaford to see my mum we always eat here, my daughter Ruby will not go anywhere else. The southern Indian menu is just fantastic and the food is always perfect. Russell who always looks after us is a perfect gent and makes you feel welcome and always makes sure the evening is hassle free. Top food, top... More

Fresh ingredients combined to make interesting and yummy food. A cut above your usual high street Indian. Pleasant staff who did not rush us out the door. I wish I lived closer.

Been quite a few times now and will continue to do so. Food is excellent and the service is outstanding, well presented clean and great atmosphere. Not the cheapest but worth every penny.

Had a Sunday evening special, £11.95 for starter, main, rice side dish, bhajis, coffee. We're given loads to eat but quantity prevailed over quality. Very greasy and bland food. Niot expensive but won't go again.

Went for a family meal, there was no rush with looking at the menus. The service was attentive without being invasive or neglected. The food choice was excellent but the bonus was the special menu on selected days which is great for the budget conscious. We had no idea about this so it really was an added bonus making for...

Can't cater for people with food allergies😔 really disappointed. First curry house I've ever been in who can't even make a basic meal with no allergens.... Also they cook in GM soya oil.... 😠

Despite being a fairly large room, this is a warm and surprisingly cosy restaurant. The food was really excellent but on top of that I have to praise the exceptional service, which was very quick and attentive without ever being intrusive. Absolutely perfect!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Shahjahan. They have all the usual dishes along with some really good house specials. We were a party of seven and we all ordered something different, along with naans and side dishes. Everything was delicious and the chicken was lovely and tender, we especially liked the tandoori dishes. The service was good and... More
