Really nice surroundings, good position, as you walk towards the door you know this is an upmarket restaurant, the staff were very attentive throughout without being pushy, The food is well presented and very tasty and being a curry snob needed to be! although perhaps portions are a little smaller than normal and a little expensive. I would recommend this... More

Probably one of the better curry houses in town.... small portions and a bit expensive for what it is.

We had special guests to our house today, my sister in law and her new partner. Usually we use other Indian takeaways but tonight we thought we would go upmarket and try the Sheesh Mahal in Banbury. Order was taken quickly and I was told 45 minutes delivery as we are very busy. No problem, even though it was £10... More

Yes, the food was good but I was given our takeaway in a cardboard box and walking a few hundred yards home in the dark, the curry sauce leaked out all over my lovely coat and it is badly stained. £10 later at the dry cleaners and it is still stained. I made a call to the restaurant and they... More

So we went to the Sheesh Mahal on recommendations from friends. When we arrived we were greeted straight away and were able to choose where to sit, this wasn't a problem as the restaurant was very quiet (it was a Monday night). It took a few minutes to get a drink and a little while before they came round to... More

Having been away in France for three weeks I was so looking forward to a curry tonight and was not disappointed ! Superb meal as usual and such good news that owner Mohammed Khalil had just been awarded the English curry winner for 2014! Well deserved!

Sheesh Mahal produces very good food, if a little different in style to what I have had in other restaurants, at a reasonable cost in a nice environment with friendly staff. It is all that you really want in a local Indian restaurant.
