Competent in every way

I've eaten here four times and had one take away. It's a spotlessly clean and friendly place. I'd say it was cut above average with a modern take of food cooked and delivered by exceptionally friendly Bengali staff. The breads here are excellent, and the vegetable side dishes are above average... read more

Hi, I went on a Tuesday and it had more customers than the other curry houses in town. The service was great and the Lamb curry was presented in a way I had never seen before, it was attractive and appealing and was a show on a plate. I'm going back when I next visit Witney..

What can be said but this is a really great place, the staff are attentive and friendly at all times and the food was absolutely wonderful. The place was busy on a Thursday and that is so telling mid week that they can pack in the crowds. Best of all was the free complimentary drink which the manager kindly gave... More

We have visited the shaan on a number of occasions and never been disappointed. Always delicious food and good service. Friendly guys and often a freebie drink whether you eat in or takeaway. The sunday banquet deal is a real bargain. The popularity of this place is clear from the lack of table availability, though they'll do whatever they can... More

Been here a number of times, food is good, nice decor. The only thing that i find is disappointing is the speed on which the food arrives. I like to have drink first but before the drink arrived the starter is on the table. Still worth a visit.

Visited the fully booked restaurant on a Sunday evening with a group of friends. Food was fine -3 out of 5- and came at a reasonable price in generous portions. But the noise of 50-60 people eating, (metal on China. .raised voices at the tables.. waiters shouting out the names of the dishes to serve them to the right customers..... More

This was our second visit for the Sunday banquet and like our previous visit was an excellent experience. You can't fault 5 courses and a complimentary bottle of wine for £10 a head. Excellent service from attentive staff, would definitely recommend and definitely visit this restaurant again.
