We visited shahi restaurant many times.the food was simply outstanding. We got both lamb and vegetarian dishes, a lot of beautiful accessories and Indian specialties,, waitor were polite but not Danish-speaking . The price is reasonable and the quality is real good.

I try to dine here as often as I am in Copenhagen. I haven't tried anything I did not like yet. The service is very good as well.

The place isn't nice, the tables are too close to each other, and the service is not good (specially regarding clients that are waiting for a table) All this was supposed to be compensated by the quality of the food, but this was not the case. The food was average.

Having had delicious food the days before, this has definitely been a disappointing experience. One of the dishes was full of red and green peppers even though this was not mentioned in the menu (unlike for some of the others). The mango lassi was far from being fresh, and even the Nan (which is usually a safe bet) was pretty... More

This is definitely not a for business or romantic dinners. I had samosas and vegetarian Spinach balls with karachi sauce which sounds exotic but is pretty ordinary curry. Personnel is amazing, a waitress is literally running and doing her best and at the same time other waiter is away or talking with buddies. Small peculiarities occurs all the time, from... More

After a wonderful day in Copenhagen, we really wanted Indian food. There was a man with a sign on Stroget (the main pedestrian street) pointing the way to Shahi. We were seated at a two top by a gracious man. Two beer and two samosas and we were on our way. We had such tasty food and a huge plate... More

Eating at 9 on a Friday in Copenhagen seems difficult, most restaurants closing. God knows what happens to the Spanish tourists here. So - came here as it was still open. Plus: initially good service, food ok, well spiced (nice!), wine ok, rather 1980s sitar music. Then everyone left. We sat at 10 finishing our wine whilst the cleaner started... More
