Must say it was the best butter chicken! Anyway, if you are looking for a family... read more

We stopped in Saturday night. We enjoyed the meal and fast service. Meals has good portions of meat to share one meal between two. Have been before and will come again.

Well we couldn't fault our meal or service the food was up to it's usual standard. Although this is the first time I had been back since they had moved i wasn't disappointed. It is a lot smaller than when it was on Marine Parade, but it didn't matter to us. Nothing was to much trouble and they asked if... More

The takeway i ordered was to be lamb koma which most of it ended up in the Bin.Worst koma i have ever had. Seemed to a yellow sauce made on cream with chunks of lamb.Not a cashew or coconut cream or curry flavour to be had.The fruit Naan bread was great.Do not insult your taste buds on this place.

We had a rare night away from our daughter the other night - she went bowling with Palm Beach cubs and we had an hour for dinner until we needed to pick her up. Coolangatta is a tourist strip of the worst kind. Like Surfers Paradise, it is full of overpriced rubbish restaurants, pokey little $2 junk shops and 'boutiques'... More

Shah Jahan used to be excellent when it was on Marine Parade. The new venue has no atmosphere compared to the previous location. Despite this and perceived change in the flavour we still dine there. We visited midweek and at 7pm the restaurant was empty. We usually order the Shah Jahan curry and it was no where near as nice... More

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!

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.
