We go to The Shann fairly regularly but by far this was the most disappointing experience we have had. The staff were inattentive and the food was not upto it's usual exceptional quality. We didn't recognise any of the staff nor did we recognise the manager who is usually the perfect host. So, has the ownership and/or the management of... More

It was very rushed, and we kept being told that... More

As vegetarians, finding good quality food at a reasonable price can be a challenge. However, no such problem at Shaan where we had one of the best Indian meals we have eaten in a very long time. Freshly cooked vegetables in the tastiest of sauces left us only feeling sorry that we hadn't room for more and that we live... More

Went here for a meal with my partner on the Sunday before Mother's Day. Enjoyed the 5 courses for £9.99 per person, we tried things that were quite different to our normal orders but each dish was delicious..
