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.

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.

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.

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
