Went for a meal with a group of friends. We had booked a table for 12 people but there were only 9 of us in the end. We couldn't get in the door for ages because there were so many people queueing behind it. Felt sorry for the couple by the door - they were hemmed in by people standing... More

Very busy and popular restaurant in an area where there are many choices. Shaban offers good food and service however the standard has slipped in recent months and attention to detail with the food has become lost in the attempt to keep up with the ever increasing business. With so many good indian restaurants springing up Shaban cannot afford to... More

Visited Shaban whilst staying at the local Travelodge and so glad we did. The food was sooo nice although we did find the portion sizes to be small and rice portions even smaller (good idea to order naan too!) That said, the service and atmosphere was second to none and we'll definately be back.

We always try to visit this restaurant when visiting our son and daughter-in-law and the meal never disappoints. The Sunday special is excellent value but get there early to guarantee a table - they open at 5pm. Food is good, service excellent from the smart staff and good value. Will always visit again.

Have been here 3 times in recent weeks, great food, great service and a fab atmosphere. The restaurant always seems full and the guys work hard for every customer. It got that busy when we were there they were almost running! If you like a good curry then Shaban is the place to go you won't be disappointed 😊

The most attentive and well served curry house I have ever been to, I have never had a better balti and the serving size was just right. The staff really care about doing a good job.
