Holidaying and left for dinner looking for a seafood platter. Everything was closed so this was a it will have to do. What a great surprise. Tastey food and well priced. Service was prompt with a smile.

We ordered some take away as we were staying across the street. When I arrived to pick up they told me I had not placed an order with them. They explained it would be no problem to cook me up whatever I wanted anyway. When I ran through the order again they realised they had actually given away our food... More

A great little Indian restaurant offering excellent food and service and real value for money, a BYO with no corkage and complimentary rice!

Nothing was too much trouble as we walked in after leaving La Porchetta where we were treated very shabily. Tables were instantly moved around to accommodate us, the service was excellent, the food was delicious. Considering we were a large group without a booking on a very busy weekend we were made to feel very welcome. Thanks for a lovely... More

Chose the Shah after a short walk from our hotel. Looked to be patronised by locals. Had a quick, tasty and reasonably cheap meal with good service. There were two tables of 6 plus couples. BYO seems to be the go. We were there just after 6pm, as we were going to a show at Twin Towns. Beat the crowds... More

Food was bland and naan bread was salty. Would not eat there again. Lamb was tasteless and quality of chicken meat was way below any acceptable standard.

Best Indian restaurant in coolangatta. Husband and wife team provides enjoyable Indian flavors. I was very impressed with their naan bread and efficient and friendly service from the front of house staff.

Food was ok but had a problem with their staff. I left an expensive raincoat there, so when I went the next day to retrieve it, one employee claimed they had put it under the counter but it was not there now. They called the other employees who claimed nothing. One of them has my jacket and effectively stolen it.

As a typical English family who loves Indian food, we did our research around the area and thought we'd try Shah-Jahan because of all the great reviews. We ordered two meat dishes and two vegetables ones as well as poppadoms and a garlic naan. All the food was pretty average and the portions were rather small in comparison to the... More
