Good food, friendly service

We stopped in for the lunch buffet on a Satuday. We were immediately greeted and the staff was very attentive and friendly. They had a good variety of options. The only thing I missed was some paneer. The desserts were very delicious. We will eat there again.

Hands down the best Indian food available in Cincinnati! The service is unmatched and the family who runs this place is the most welcoming bunch I've ever met. Their portions are generous and very affordable and you can BYOB! We will continue to support Shaans and recommend it to family and friends. Please go and be charmed 😊

The food and service were top notch. The service seems to be going downhill a little bit, but we still love going. The sauces are a little watery compared to other Indian restaurants--wish it was a little more thicker. Other than that, everything is great. Their buffet is everyday and has a great selection. I recommend this place on the... More

There is no better Indian restaurateur in Cincinnati. After one or two trips they know your order as soon as you walk in the door and the food is fab. Don't waste your time going elsewhere come here first

Shaan is one of the friendliest restaurants I've been to in Cincinnati and the food meets a similar standard. This has become one of our new favorite places for take out in the Hyde Park-Mt Lookout-Oakley area. I wouldn't say the food is radically different from other Indian restaurants I've been to in the area but they have excellent variety... More

This was our first experience with Indian food and it was very good! Obviously since it was our first experience we can't compare it to anything else. The atmosphere was quiet and laid back. Service was quick and friendly. It did seem a bit busy with walk-in carryout customers. The food seemed authentic and was very tasty. We'll be back!

Went based on high scoring reviews. Buffet was just average. Service was very good. Better authentic food at Anand at 10890 Reading.

The serving size of both meals we ordered was more than enough and the $10.99 price tag for each seemed fairly priced. Though I’ve yet to try another Indian restaurant in Cincinnati, it will be hard for them to compare to a wonderful experience at Shaan.

Had the chicken tikka, papadums, and mango lassi. The chicken was enough for two, and tasted okay, but nothing to write home about. The lassi was a bit small. If in the area, I would come again especially to try the lunch buffet, but would not go out of my way.
