Wow! Never knew this place existed so close by. Had my first trip here on Sunday for the buffet lunch. Upon arrival,we were greeted and shown to our table. We ordered drinks and a round of poppadums. The dishes available in the buffet were a good range, and it's a perfect way of trying new dishes that you wouldn't otherwise... More

I have been ordering takeaway from this restaurant for over 2 years and on the rare occasions meal is delivered late or some bits missing I call up to notify them and am always greeted by a freidnly teller who offers money off or replacements with no dramas, the curries and meats are great especially the jalfrezi or marsala all...

This used to be a great curry house but has really gone downhill now. The service was dreadful with disinterested staff (we waited for 20 minutes just to order on a Thursday night when it was empty!). The food was very mediocre with my rice arriving a long time after my main meal. We certainly will avoid this for now... More

The whole family was very unimpressed by our meal there. The food was not particularly tasty, and it didn't have the beautiful complex flavours of good Indian cuisine. The onion bhajees were tasteless; the lamb balti was horrible (tough, stringy meat and the sauce tasted only of curry powder); the naan bread heavy and lumpy. I would not order food... More

We had not set out to have an Indian Meal, but where we had booked, just outside of Guildford, was experiencing long delays in serving customers, so, as we were up against the clock we went somewhere else. And that somewhere else was the Shahin. First of all, amazing for Guildford, we were able to park outside! Second, the service... More

Slightly bright decoration, but general atmosphere nice, staff friendly and menu ok. Starters no longer come with salad but main courses ok. Sunday buffet is the highlight for this restaurant. Few dishes which are replaced regularly so is fresh and hot!

Our local Indian. We have had had dozens of takeaways from the Shahin and have eaten in many times too over the last 15 years. Remember it before they extended into next door but they retained their great food and service. Can't remember ever having a bad dining experience here. Highly recommended if you're in the Guildford area.
