Shah Restaurant at 962 W. El Camino Real, Sunnyvale, CA, is a "No-Frills Eating House" for good tasty food at reasonable price. The food is North-West Frontier Indo-Pak cuisine which is similar to "Mughlai cuisine". We had ordered for: Sheekh Kabab Chicken, Sheekh Kabab Beef, Saag- Meat, Naan and Mango Lassi. This is a "Self-Service" place and the staff at... More

The food here is really good and the prices are extremely reasonable. Some people have complained about the service but we thought that was good as well. The guy at the register sometimes forgets but he is a nice guy who likes to chat with the customers. He forgot one of our dishes but immediately had it made and brought... More

I was brought here by a colleague that is from Pakistan himself and is an absolute fan of this place. Don't expect much of ambiance and service, and focus on the taste of the food, that is truly good. The tandoori chicken and the warm naan were the highlights!

Went here last night to get some food as it was recommended to me by a co-worker. Order a chicken kebab naan roll and some chicken biriyani. The guy told me to sit at a table and he'll give me the food when it's ready. Guess what? He completely forgot about me as he kept chatting away with another customer.... More

We tried Tandoori chicken from this place recently. They took ~15 minutes to prepare and the staff is very polite. I liked their billing system also, using iPad apps and all. Food was nice and enjoyable. I would recommend this place for occasional visits..

The chicken tikka masala, jalfrezi and boti kabobs are some of the best dishes. They are open quite late on Friday and saturday until 3.00am in the morning. The place is packed after 2.00am.

We, three of us, had an enjoyable dinner: Sheekh Kabab Chicken, Sheekh Kabab Beef, Chicken Tikka Masala, Garlic Naan and Mango Lassi. The place is a "no frills" kind of restaurant, but the food is good and prices reasonable.
