I came here with my family, it is really nice with friendly staff, typical look and feel of a curry house with pink table cloths. The service was great and the food was amazing however they don't have a drinks licence which I didn't know about and since don't drink soft drinks left my choices a bit limited! The waiter... More

Disgusting service we were harassed off our table after an hour of arriving by a very rude waiter as they had over booked the tables so if you want to eat your curry in a hurry and be harassed by staff who literally throw your food,drinks and the bill at you this is the place for you

As excellent as the food is here, the service me and my family experienced tonight has put me off this restaurant for good! The service was normal until about an hour into our meal. We booked a table for 7.30, arrived on time, then at around 8.30 the waiter puts the bill on our table. Not only had we not... More

Out of all the Indian restaurants in Boldmere, Shaban always delivers top quality food and excellent service every time. Highly recommended.

Visiting our son and he had arranged for other friends to join us as a surprise so there were 8 of us in total. It was a Sunday evening so we all had the "special" which is any starter and any main course from the extensive menu for a fixed price. You take your own drinks and glasses and a... More

After booking a table last Tuesday for 10 people to dine on Saturday evening we were disapointed that the only reservation they had was for 8-30pm. Obviously it is a popular restaurant and expected it to be busy at the week-end so we booked it reluctantly. I telephoned on Saturday afternoon to check if we could come any earlier and... More

Have eaten at Shaban several times and found it very good. Had friends round and decided to have a take away delivery. Ordered it was told it would cost £55.50, but when they delivered was told it was £65.50 as we had to pay for the taxi that delivered it! Nothing was said about this when the order was put... More

We have been going to the Shaban almost every other weekend since it opened, including Christmas Day. My husband whinges if we suggest eating a curry any where else! It has always been a standing joke about booking a table, pardon the pun, as there is no booking system. You go through the pretence of booking but it is pot... More

Friday night is invariably Shaban night in our house - whether takeaway or eating in, the food and service are both excellent. To keep going back when there is serious competition on Boldmere high street tells you all you need to know. In all our years, not too sure if we've ever had a bad meal. There's enough variety and...

Excellent restaurant, byo drink. Food is delicious, particularly the above-mentioned dish. My carnivorous friends are also well catered for.
