We really enjoyed our first visit there.

We ate there with our daughter's family for a Mother's Day dinner--our first time but not theirs. We weren't sure what a strip mall restaurant would be like but we were pleasantly surprised. The interior was very nice with many booths and a few large tables. The food was very good with everyone... read more

This was my first time here and from the reviews, I was expecting great food and service. I got neither. The food was average and lacking in flavor and spice. The service was down right horrible. I had to wait 20 minutes for them to get me something to drink. I will not be back and I would not recommend... More

We ordered carry out and it was ready when I walked in- and still quite hot when I got home! We had the lamb korma and the lamb with mushrooms. Both came with rice. The portions are generous to say the least and the prices were good. The meals were soooooo good! The people who work there are very friendly... More

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!
