So good to have this on our doorstep

Who needs to drive all the way to Rushholme when this little gem is just a walk away !? Draught Cobra, lovely food, personal service, the best Pashwari Naan ever (order more to take home for your freezer).

By far the best indian we've ever had. We've had a take away a few times now and it has always been delicious. Reasonably priced and friendly staff. Highly recommended! I worry that this restaurant loses walk in customers that get drawn to the fancier looking places. Inside is completely different to the outside. Highly recommended. Looking forward to my... More

Being a downstairs restaurant you'd think they try hard to create the atmosphere you miss by not having windows and natural light - they don't!!!!! The food is good but not outstanding.

The Shamoli is located on the right, half way along Knutsford’s bottom street (King Street). It is downstairs below street level so there are no windows. However it is tastefully decorated and is a popular place to sample Indian cuisine for locals and visitors alike. I have eaten here on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed the food. The meat...

I've visited Shamoli a few times now and the food is reasonable enough but nothing particularly outstanding or special, very much run of the mill. The food isn't particularly spicy, although it is good that the restaurant will give you roasted fresh chilli's though if you just ask which is a nice touch, but on the whole the customer service...

Visited here a couple of weeks ago, food was lovely we just ordered too much of it and could finish it. I have to say the layout of the restaurant is very strange though, underground then a tiny room. I suppose if the food and service is good that's all that matters,

Very popular on Sunday evenings. £9.95 - chose any starter and main course plus a popadom, with rice or naan. Masses of choice. Regular visitors ourselves. Food always well prepared. Just lacks a little atmosphere.

We've been to the Shamoli a few times over the years. It's ok - the food is the usual Indian. I have a real problem with dining there though. It's downstairs so there is no natural light. I feel a bit claustrophobic there.

Great food, amazing value on Sunday, excellent service always on it.. Decor has a 'classic' feel to it, needs updating as there is serious competition all vying for the same clientele. Eaten here many times, never had a bad one yet.. Keep it up..

Wherever we are on most Fridays of the year we try and eat at an Indian, therefore we have been to many. Whilst we have had good curries from all over when we are at home there is nothing better locally than Shamoli. Steve
