Good food

The food here is quite good, the dishes are from a presentation point of view rather basic but what is on thr plate tastes great (that matters, right?). The staff is polite and helpful, the price tag is very reasonable.

Tried the Shahin for a change for a Friday evening takeaway. Food arrived very quickly but was very bland. The tandoori chicken was just a chicken leg with no spices. The jalfrezi had no spices but was flooded in a curry powder gravy. Reminded me of school dinners.

We were taken out for a meal at this restaurant and found that the staff were exceptionally polite and attentive. The restaurant was not busy but not empty either. The food was very tasty and would certainly go there again.

I had a problem finding a a good rated Indian restaurant within walking distance of the Guilford Travelodge earlier this year. On our latest trip I was told about the Shahin but how the food can be a hit or miss. Fortunately, on this occasion, our meal was great, with a good portion size. (And one of the few places... More

I love this place- food is always good and service is good. The staff are friendly and attentive. It's worth calling in advance for big groups.

Absolutely delicious. Every time we go the waiter helps makes suggestions for what to eat. Staff are attentive but not hovering. The food is so good. Filling but not in a bad way. We all love it here and are always delighted.

Went out for dinner on a Friday night despite not booking in advance - nice atmosphere, not too crowded but not empty either. The service was really fantastic, friendly and cheerful waiters that were very helpful and kind. The food was delicious and good value for money, however the drinks were a little pricey, but the quality of the dinner... More

After a lot of good reviews, both here on Trip Advisor and from friends, we were expecting better. Of the 3 mains we shared between us, one was very good, one was just OK, and one was awful. We tried to complain about it but got a brush off. Maybe an off day.
