Very good meal

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... read 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.

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

If you fancy trying something a little different then go for their Madras menu - it is not hot (spicy) just not the usual dishes you would find at any other Indian restaurant. Really worth a try.

This is a great restaurant, great food, good atmosphere, really good service and reasonably priced. If we are in the area again will definitely visit again.

The best thing about the Shahjahan by far is their Sunday Special. You get a starter, main, rice/naan, side and onion bhajis all for around £10, either eat in or takeaway. I like to eat a lot but this is easily enough food to last me for two meals. The quality is also good and the portions reasonable. If you... More
