“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

The food here is fantastic. One of the best indians I've ever had. It's so tasty here and we always come back again and again.

“Best Indian I know”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

My partner and I go to Shampaan regularly and always have a great experience. Price, food, service are all spot on. It's the best curry house I know.

“Excellent and unexpectedly great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Went there based on the reviews in Tripadvisor- having runs past the resturant plenty of times and never thought of trying it.

I was really impressed, the resturant is very clean, nicely decorated. Yes, it did take a while for our order to be taken and there was a wait whilst food was cooked- but was in there about 1 1/2 hours, which is fairly standard for starters, mains and coffee.

Staff were all very friendly, apparently it can get very busy there- so I will remember to book before I go back (went on a quiet night first time)

The food was probably the best I have had in a Indian resturant in a very long time, I cannot fault the food even if I tried.

There were a number of take away orders placed whilst we were there.

Two people, having popadom, starters, mains, naan bread and coffee- £29. I have paid getting on for double this is other restaurants - given the generous portion size, this was extremely good value for money.

Will defiantly go back and would recommend this to friends. I certainly was not expecting the resturant to be as good as it was- even though I had read the reviews.

Well done to the resturant, great food, good service, good prices- probably why you are so busy.

“Best takeaway in Thurrock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Great value, wonderful food and fantastic atmosphere but always very busy so book or order ahead. Just a shame about the lack of parking around the area
