Not at all impressed a couple of years ago when we last visited this restaurant but things have changed. They have moved in to Griffiths Street next to another (great) restaurant and it looks like the young'uns have taken over the running of the restaurant. Service was terrific, nothing was too much trouble and the food was spot on, authentic... More

We are locals and eat here atleast once a month, great food, great service! The staff are always very helpful and nothing we ask for is a hassle. Defiantly worth a try you won't be disappointed..

Had just arrived in Coolangatta early evening from Brisbane, walked front of beach and found this restaurant, pleasant welcome from young lady, ordered and was surprised by the quality of the meal which was excellent. My Butter Curry was one of the best I have had anywhere in the world. If they had only had draught beer as well they... More

Dinner at the Shah-Jahan was an enjoyable experience. Good food - authentically cooked - great Tandoori oven. BYO and licensed. Very good value for money. Hot can be HOT! so order mild if you can't stand the heat. Great for families. service not as good as it should be.

went as a large group, on booking, told we couldn't order individually. so was offered the banquet, was given a price pp. Food portions and choices shocked for the price, esp for the vegetarians present, only bowls of sauce and rice, no vegetables/lentils to be seen. Were still charged for 3 guests that didnt attend. So, make sure of your... More

We were looking forward to a curry so we sat down at a table. We sat and we sat. Then we were given a menu - no water or opporunity to order a drink. Then we sat and we sat. Nothing happened for about another 10-15 minutes so we just left. Either no staff or couldn't be bothered? Hard to... More

Indian Food is one of our favourites - Shah Jahan was tops. We had a delicious meal and even the bread was something to talk about

Situated in a superb location opposite the beach in Coolangatta we thought we were in for a great night. How disappointing! Can't complain about the service. The young gentleman who served us was definitely not the happiest waiter I've ever seen but was polite & efficient. The food on the other hand was terrible. We would generally eat Indian food...

We are lovers of Indian food and we held high hopes for this restaurant. It looked the the real deal with lots of very helpful Indian staff, but the food tasted as if it had come out of a jar! I am sorry to say that but the selection of entrees were all boring deep fried numbers, the wine list... More
