Perfectly fine curry

Went for curry with work colleague as we fancied a curry and the Shahin was close to the Travelodge so gave it a go. The restaurant was very quiet on a Tuesday night and the service was prompt and good. The usual selections of beers and tandoori cuisine was on offer. We had lamb biriani and... read more

I ordered a Saturday takeaway from the Shahin and it was the worst curry i have ever tasted!! It was tasteless! Tepid.. heat wise! Hardly any chicken! It tasted like chicken stew! I did complain but whoever answered my call wasn't interested about my complaint.. there are much better Indian Restaurants in Guildford..hence I won't be ordering from the Shahin... More

This restaurant looked promising from the begining, but after being greeted and seated pleasently, given some poppadoms, and our drinks, we had to flag down our waiter 20 minutes later to take our order, then wait an additional 45 minutes for our food to arrive. When it finally did arrive, we were so dissapointed we paid almost £13 for a... More

I placed an order online and got a conformation email at 19:00 saying that my delivery was being processed. With them saying it would take no longer than 45 minutes on their website, i called them around 8 and out come all of the excuses under the sun. They firstly told me that there was loads of traffic, baring in... More

Food was ok, a little disappointed as we usually eat at Red Rose but wanted to try something else and unfortunately it did not compare!

I placed an order online via their website at 19.31 on 8th October. When 20:43 rolled by and I had received nothing I decided to call. Big mistake! The first person I spoke to claimed they had not received my order and to quote him 'there is nothing I can do'. On to the next person who said the same... More

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

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
