Good food from the family

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 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.

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

My second time dining here on the weekend (28/02/15) and I believe the food was possibly even better than before. The service is friendly, the staff even rearranged the furniture so we could sit outside. It is BYO but there's a bottle shop right across the road. I am allergic to peppers, so I tend to go for the non-spicy... More

Lovely meal here on Sat 7/2/15. Starters: chicken tikka generous portion v tasty, plus they gave us free samosas; mains: lamb sagwala (medium not hot as asked but beautifully tender meat) & delicious chicken madras, 2x naans, complimentary rice - all under $50. Good value, attentive staff, meals out quickly but never rushed. Will be back. PS Its BYO so... More
