Very good but very busy

Went here Good Friday. The place was packed but we had booked so they had a table. Service was a little slow I'm sure due to the number of large groups eating there but we not so slow it was annoying. Food was very good, fresh and delicious. We were given a couple of complimentary sides because we... read more

My family and I were looking for a new Indian restaurant to try. Well we couldn't have chose better. The choice of food was great, the standard of the food was exceptional and the staff were attentive and friendly. The restaurant was extremely busy, yet the service was great and we never felt rushed at any time. We will definitely... More

This is now our favourite Indian take-away/restaurant in Boldmere. We went again for my birthday on 4th April with a couple of friends. They had never been before. The food was really good and our friends really enjoyed their meal too. We would recommend paying Shaban a visit. They also offer low fat curries if you are health conscious. Staff... More

I had high hopes for this dinner - a Saturday night treat for me and the kids and a bottle of cobra ( I'm not a big drinker) thrown in. The restaurant was packed and i took this to be a fairly good indication of the quality of the food, a bustling and pleasant atmosphere and staff were busy but... More

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 😊
