Great Sunday deal

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... read more

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 was my first ever visit to this restaurant - usually use the other popular indian just up the road. Having heard mixed reviews in the past I was pleasantly the surprised. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and has a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very attentive. Wide variety of choices on the menu from starters right through to... More

We came to this restaurant as our other favourite was full. In the past we have received very poor service but decided to give it another chance as we hadn't been here for a while! The food was delicious there is no denying that BUT that's where the compliments stop! The popadums came out pretty quickly but then the wait... More

Ate here on a not very busy Saturday night. Was 45 minutes after ordering and a very long time staring at dirty, un-cleared starter pates that we were told one of the special mains ordered was unavailable. It got worse from there - incompetent and chaotic. Reasonable complaints where met with disinterest/rudeness which was at least consistent with the complete... More
