I know I have reviewed this restaurant before but I must tell my readers about a great new (to me) dish I have discovered. It is called Achari Dish. It is absolutely delicious. Michelin standard.

Absolutely brilliant, the best food and service I could ask for the staff is really friendly, specially the owners 2 boys who create the best banter and service a real credit to the restaurant. The food was out of this world I will visit again soon! MUST TRY, you wont go anywhere else.

We have been coming here for years. Shemul is our favourite local Indian restaurant. The owner is delightful. BUT! I don't know if Shemul has a new chef but the chicken pieces have become so big that they are inedible. The meat is too tough to cut on the plate. Please cut them smaller in the kitchen. That's all. We... More

£11.95 for 5 courses and they didn't scrimp on the portion sizes. I got far more than I paid for. Really recommend getting here on a Tuesday night.

This restaurant has a lot going for it. The location is leafy and quiet. The staff are friendly but not over-bearing. The food can be quite good. It is very clean and tidy. And you can have a pleasant conversation without the boom of other people's chatter. But it is a bit stuck in an earlier era of Indian restaurants.... More

Absolutely delicious food at very cheap prices. Very friendly service always feel very welcoming. Been several times now and never disappoints. As a side note, the completely negative reviews are clearly from competitors, especially the person who said there is no parking, as there is loads of parking just outside the restaurant!
