Birthday meal

Really delicious! We haven't been here for a number if years but it hasn't changed much. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was yummy, served well, nice and hot, and good portion sizes. The toilets were clean but could do with an upgrade. Overall, enjoyable evening.

I have been to this restaurant over 50 times and it never disappoints. Sunday night special. Chicken chat to start was fabulous Chicken madras was perfect. Well spiced and flavoursome without blowing my head off. Food was good as always, service a little slow at times but overall very good experience.

It is something that you will love it if you decide to grab an Indian lunch or dinner in Whitley Bay. The service is great and also the preparation of the food.

We had wonderful dinners and service at this restaurant. Nice selection of nan breads. Really flavorful dishes with a good amount of meat in them served on a warming tray so they didn't cool off. The wait staff and owner were very attentive and friendly. They even brought us a hot cloth at the end of the meal to clean... More

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.
