So busy on a Saturday evening

We decided to visit the Shama before a trip to a concert, and so glad we did. It was only 5.45 and the place was very busy, by the last time we left an hour later it was full. I chose Mushroom Pakora whilst my wife had Onion Bhajis, for starters. They came quickly and were a delight. For... read more

as the title average food at over average price, have eaten better , just feel the price is for the area not the food, better off traveling further and paying less

My parents, 9 year old son and I visited the Shama on New Years Eve 2014. We went again following our 'Zero to Hero' experience the previous year (see previous review - although we have been in between). Simply another fabulous meal that when accompanied by great service, as it is, makes for a fabulous night out! I wouldn't go... More

Shama Bingley is certainly my family's favourite curry emporium! We are never disappointed by the service and dish range & quality. Whether it's a busy Saturday or a relatively quiet Monday, the food is great, the staff friendly and helpful and the process reasonable. Doubtless the overall bill is kept down by the fact that you can take your own... More

This is a very busy restaurant and clean but the food is fairly average unfortunately my rice was lukewarm which did not help but the really disappointing bit is the service the waiters chat to each other and getting their attention is very hard and the manager/proprietor goes round but only talks to his regulars and does not stop to...

Lovely meals - we get a takeaway from here once a month or so and it is the best curry in the area in my opinion (I have tried a number of others). Always courteous, always ready on time and not too badly priced.

The Shama has never looked back after moving to its (relatively) new home. Great food at a great price served by attentive staff. Best chapatis ever!
