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.
