Tightly packed sardines. Poor food and the service is aimed at getting you out quick to get a new person in your seat. I eat at many curry houses but won't be returning here.

Fantastic food, stands out in a crowded area for curries. I've tried most of the restaurants and this is the friendliest with the most flavoursome meals. Not the cheapest but worth the money.

This is the second time we have been to Shaban and have been very impressed with the service and food. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is served quickly and hot. They also do low fat curries if you are health conscious. Highly recommend this restaurant. I would advise booking in advance as they are very popular... More

This was the first time I tried the place. I ordered a dish that lets you try two types of curry. 'Try' is the word, alright: You pay top dollar for little more than a spoonful of each. The massala was fine; Im pretty sure the lamb came out of a tin. The menu offers a reduced fat option for... More

Promt service and meal waiting time was good. Sheesh kebab was totally bland, chicken tikka madras was extremely average and nan bread was too doughy. Pelaw rice was more like sticky rice. I read previous reviews harping on about how good food was and I was expecting something great. As my job requires me to travel the country and I... More

Having got back from London we decided to have a quick meal. Been going here for many years and tonight was up to usual standard. Never had a bad meal. Went at 6.30pm very busy by 7.00pm. Ali was his usual perfect host. Served promptly with attention and pleasant atmosphere. Would have no hesitation in recommending to others and have... More

My husband and I took an impromptu visit here on May Day bank holiday Monday. We're frequent visitors so not strangers however on this occasion the food excelled previous occasions. I had the low fat king prawn jaipur & it was tantalisingly delicious. The staff are always attentive & friendly. An absolute delight xx

The fact that the restaurant is full at 7 on a Thursday tells you everything about this high quality Indian restaurant. Service is attentive and efficient, choice of dishes is wide but suggests freshly made and the manager always values feedback. By far the best in the area.
