Another amazing meal at the Shamrat

We have been going to the Shamrat since it opened about 25 years ago and it is the best Indian in Maidstone by far and our favourite restaurant of any type. It is perfect for intimate meals for two or four, but larger groups can be catered for as I found out yesterday when we had a works leaving... read more

Always very good food. Some unusual dishes, including a couple of King Prawn variations. Price is fair per dish. Went on a Friday night and service was slower due to the number of dinners. A very good choice if the quality of the food is top of your list, either with a partner, friend, or family - but as it... More

Called in on the spare of the moment, and what a good decision it was. The staff were friendly from the minute I walked through the door. I know it was a Monday night and it wasn't that busy but the service was first class. From ordering my food to leaving nothing was a problem and the food was excellent.... More

My wife was taken here recently for a family birthday celebration, sadly I was left behind on babysitting duties! Her comment was that upon arrival the exterior and initial impression left a little to be desired. However, her sister insisted it was good, and indeed that proved to be the case, with excellent food and a very enjoyable evening had... More

The Shamrat is a definite restaurant to visit, pleasant atmosphere, freindly staff, great food and brilliant service. If you are after a good curry house in Maidstone look no further than here.

Myself & my partner were recommended Shramrat when we first moved to Maidstone and we wouldn't go anywhere else now. The peshwari naan is to die for as is the Piri piri jalfrezi oh and the chicken korai.. The list goes on! It's not necessarily the cheapest place to go but I suppose you get what you pay for sometimes.... More

Booked for our quarterly curry and was thoroughly impressed with the service and quality of food. Relaxed atmosphere and pre drinks at the bar added to the enjoyment. The food flavoursome and would recommend as the best curry house in Maidstone
