Lovely food, excellant service

Visited Shaban twice, and both times the food was stunning. The first visit was New Years Eve so was very busy, and therefore there was a slight wait for the food, but this was to be expected. We were also sat right by the entrance to the kitchen, so it was quite loud with waiters constantly... read more

I opted for the low calorie option. Really lovely, felt like I wasn't eating any calories at all. The food was tasty and light and not heavy or greasy. I would recommend!

We live in Boldmere and this is our local. We come here as a couple and also with family and friends probably twice a month. Friday and Saturday nights it gets packed. There are people queuing at the door to get in so make sure you book. If you are going for a romantic candlelit evening on a weekend night... More

A nice Indian restaurant with good food, well cooked and in a pleasant surrounding. If you go there it has no licence, so you can take your own, there is an off licence nearby. Staff are pleasant and cheerful, I was there on a Thursday and the place was packed, enough said

We have been coming to Shaban for a while now but I've noticed lately that the portion sizes are too small..could have ate same again. Also the restaurant is way to cramped..tables everywhere. This is not the place to go for a nice relaxed meal too noisy and too crowded. Waiting time is also an issue, had to wait at... More

First time we have eaten here and the food was delicious! Really good value for money and inexpensive. Staff were efficient on what was a very busy night. The only downside for us was it was very noisy and we were seated in a major traffic area just outside the kitchen. Will definitely eat here again, perhaps trying a quieter... More

We are regulars at Shaban (admittedly too regular!) The staff are always friendly and very attentive, occasionally come across as a bit over the top but I would rather that then not enough service. The special deal on a Sun-Wed is fantastic value (any starter,main rice or naan for £!1.95). However even on any other day it is still incredible... More

The service in this place is amazing, the waiters are always very friendly, attentive and go the extra mile to help with children. Food is lovely, meat is good quality and the dishes are always full of flavour. Great if you're on a budget, everything is reasonably priced and you bring your own drinks. Will always keep coming back here,... More

We use the Shaban regularly and have always found the food to be great, good portion size, and the staff friendly and helpful. The only reason I don't give them 5 stars is because you can be really crammed in when busy, I do wish they wouldn't spoil a good restaurant by putting too many tables in.

Service was very good. Food was terrible apart from the naan which was soft and fluffy. Food sermed to have no spice no taste. Nothing like what we eat at home. Very bland .
