Good food with reasonable price

One of the good things about this restaurant is that it is open beyond 11PM. Visited this place when we were looking for a place to have dinner after we finished a 8pm movie. They serve Indian and Pakistan dishes. But tried the plain naan, garlic naan, paneer masala and veg biriyani. Taste was... read more

Shah is not a fancy place; it looks more like a food court than a restaurant, but it is kept clean. Depending on what you order, you may or may not need to include a plate with the utensils you bring to your table -- some dishes are served expecting you to have an empty plate waiting. The various tandoori... More

Food always tastes good. It is not a great place to sit and eat so I always prefer to call them on phone and pickup the order. Biryani is not very spicy, I prefer more spicy. Chicken Tandoori is my all time favorite. Baklawa usually tastes good.

Great Indian food for a decent price though the preparation leaves much to be desired from a healthy eating perspective since the dishes are overloaded with oil. Since they can vary the spiciness to suit the palate, it's a good place to be introduced to Indian food.

We have been patronizing Shah Restaurant for several years and usually get the different types of kabab rolls. They also serve a variety of meat curries, breads, such as roties and naans, biriyani, tandoori chicken, a variety of kababs and mango lassi and the like. The restaurant has very basic functional amenities and not much of decor. A good place... More

Food is average, staff is friendly but not sophisticated, don't expect much from service. From ambiance Its more like an eatery than a restaurant although they serve full meal menu.

Came here for lunch. Good fixed lunch box offering. Either veg or non-veg. They have 2 entrees, rice, and naan. Price is good and plenty of seating. Good place to come if you want a quick lunch with workmates.

Complete value for money restaurant... Not suitable for a formal meal, but ideal if you want to have a great tasting Indian/ Pakistani Non veg meal with friends/ family... Service is a bit slow, but I don't know if they were short staffed the day we were there... Food is excellent, please try the tandoori chicken, naans are soft, chicken... More
