I took two of my friends to the restaurant to take advantage of the meal deal, which I was lead to believe should be £10 to include a starter, main, rice or naan and a side dish. When the bill came out it was for over £80 ! I questioned the waiter, he apologised and bought an amended bill which... More

One of the Best and most authentic food experiences I have had in a long time. Food was cooked beautifully. The chicken tikka masalah, with keema nan did it for me perfectly. The owner Mr.Khalid was very friendly, and always makes us feel welcome. Cant wait to return. Well Done Sheesh Mahal.

The Tuesday night meal deal is fantastic, starter, mains, rice or nan and vegetable side dish for £10. The curry's are plentiful, very flavoursome and spicy. This is the second visit to restaurant when one of the party has been served chicken not lamb though?!

A nice surprise to be taken to the best curry house in Banbury on my birthday. A great curry served in a timely manner. We all tended to stick to our usual: Chicken Tikka Marsala Chicken Passanda Chicken Korma All served with rice and chick pea dhal!! Great curry, great price, great service. Cant knock it!

We have been visiting and using this takeaway restaurant for over 20 years and it has maintained its excellent standard. The ingredients used are first class, the tastes varied and full of flavour, the portions are very generous and the surroundings nicely up-market. Excellent venue for either a special event or a quick meal after work. The proprietor knows his... More

I have said it before and I will say it again, fantastic restaurant. Lovely interior like sitting in a comfortable lounge, fresh ingredients, great flavours. My wife's Birthday fell on a Tuesday so even benefited from the Tuesday special price. Thanks for the wine. All the best see you again very soon.

Firstly this is NOT one of your bog-standard Indian curry houses that you go to with the lads after a night on the beer. The food is freshly cooked for each order to regional recipes from the sub-continent - full of flavour, herbs and spices. Although the baltis and standard madras are available, I would strongly suggest that you go... More

Got a takeaway and the food was cold (I live 3mins from restaurant) and naan was burnt. I was very embarrassed as we were entertaining. Also it is quite a bit more expensive than other curry outlets in Banbury
