Food was great, service very average.

Recommended by friends and they took us along, as they have been here many times and not once had a bad experience. The service was mediocre at best as they did not seem happy to be there and had problems understanding at times. The food was great however and well proportioned. The other problem I... read more

After living in the area for a year and people raving about the restaurant we decided to give it a try, last Friday the food was mediocre, nothing specifically wrong just a bulk standard curry. I did at one point have to to ask the waiter to smile as he seemed rather miserable. When the bill was presented the dish... More

I went 3 weeks ago with a friend for a meal ,we were one of just two tables used that evening and,the service... More

Agree with the last poster "sparkey2807". The service here is abysmal. Literally dozens of mistakes at a single meal - starters wrong, mains wrong, drinks wrong - so I went to the bar to get the second round of drinks to minimise their mistakes and to give one example of both price and service - I asked for a diet...

I have been a regular customer of this restaurant for nearly 10 years, over the last 6 months or so it is gone down hill. You order a lamb dish and you get chicken, they completely forget other dish's you should get and have paid for and they often forget the so called free rices you get with certain main... More

We visited this restaurant in celebration of my birthday, we went a day before, on the 4th October. We pre-booked a table in advance as the restaurant is extremely busy and as we previously have seen, we can still understand why! We have not visited the Shozna for a while so we went back and it has not changed one... More

What a superb dining experience, very amiable staff, there were 6 of us and one guy ordered steak & chips, he told our waiter that he didn't like Indian food, to which he replied with a grin 'so what are you doing here?'. We all roared with laughter - and then the rest of us enjoyed a banquet of Indian... More

I've been visiting this restaurant for the past 10 years, first introduced by my family and now have started to go with my friends. It still really good, but a shadow of what it used to be. Don't get me wrong, it's still a great restaurant with great food but the shine has certainly deferred from the Strood location to... More

We have been going to the restaurant since Jay and team took over many years ago, we were there on their first night. We have clebrated New Years evening there several times, fireworks and all.
