The food is ok. Took a while to arrive. The driver got lost. The rice was ok. The curry itself needed more spice. Madras to me should. Have more tang. The meat was ok. Chicken could have been more moist.

To the Shahenshah on Thursday evening for a pre-election results curry with the boys. We took advantage of the Thursday Night Special, which offers three courses and a coffee for a tenner. They do a good deal whereby you can upgrade your curry to one of the more expensive Chef's Specials, for £1.50 a head, which we all chose to... More

We found ourselves in Whitley Bay and couldn't eat at our planned venue. By chance we decided to go to the Shahenshah and we were well pleased with our change of restaurant. Friendly staff, good food and a decent pint of Cobra made for a excellent meal. All dishes served fresh to the table with no fuss and the opinion... More

Had a lovely meal although the surroundings were a little tired. Service was fine, didn't feel rushed. Its was quite a busy restaurant which is always a good sign when you don't know the area.

Fantastic meal from beginning to end. We started with tandoori kebab and onion bhaji - both looked and tasted great. Main courses were lamb special ghost - wonderful flavours, perfectly tender lamb, and a king prawn dish (can't remember what exactly) which was equally delicious, 5 HUGE and tasty prawns. Spinach bhaji side and the naan breads were brilliant too.... More

Incredibly good service delicious cuisine, excellent value and a great choice. They even do a veggie Quorn curry - amazing. And they are very happy to give you a doggy bag. Perfect in every way. Go! You won't be disappointed. Best curry and service in Whitley Bay.

Very good Indian meals with really superb service. Was a little quieter than some nearby Indians however the food and service was really good. Highly recommended. Décor not too fashionable which is a shame as this place deserves to be visited by more people.
