Foods Good!

The place is a bit tired and it could do with a makeover, it is not in the best of locations but the food is very good and it is good value for money, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable worth a visit if you are a curry nut!

Been to the Shanti a few times now and whilst it is ok it is not the best in town. If you like a late night meal and a beer ideal you will not be rushed.

Visited here on a Monday night. Good quality food and good service. Meal for three with starters, mains, and drinks ( not alcoholic) £40 which given the amount of food was good value.

Easy to Park at Sainsburys, nice decor, attentive service, and tasty indian food at reasonable prices. We have been many times over the last four years and have never been disappointed.
