“Great food, great value, 5 star restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

I have eaten at the Shabab Nan Kabab on numerous accassions and have never been disapointed, the food is always of the best quality and the prices are very reasonable, for example you can have an onion bhaji starter, a curry of your choice with rice and naan bread for around £10 to £12 on what similar has cost me in the past, you can also take your own drinks (alcoholic only) which saves you money, Overal at great restaurant, however make sure you book your table in advance as the restaurant is only small and is also exremely popular,
Visit this place and you'll be coming back for yours to come.

“simply the best!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Dont really like this being on tripadvisor, ive been going to this place for 5 years or more now and the food is excellent, if it gets to well known I might struggle to get in as it is a small restaurant . They have no booze licence so bring your own...by the way this restaurant is for lovers of great food not décor, lighting and ponsey waiters....

“The best value curry in Nottingham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

Always reliable, have been many many times and always feel satisfied afterwards.

Very small restaurant, it's open very late and you need to take your own alcohol so it saves you paying £4 a pint but you do need to remember to pick some up on the way.

Not to be judged by location, it's also a bit dated inside but the food is delicious, we recommend tandoori mixed grill if you are really hungry and the lamb rogan josh is my favourite.

“Best in Notts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011

Scrap the title... best ever... The curry's suit all tastes, and the staff will tailor to your needs if not! No license so you bring your own booze.

“The best curry house in Nottingham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

Has no one written a review for Shabab yet? Shocking! What can I say? It is the best curry house in Nottingham (and I've been to many!) and, when the bill arrives, you'll have the shock of your life - but for the right reasons! This is a backstreet place but hugely popular (always book for Fri/Sat - sometimes need to book midweek, as it can be unexpectedly busy between 7 and 9: closed on Tuesdays, by the way). The restaurant has a great atmosphere, and the team are focused, polite and proper characters. You can take your own booze - it is not licensed (there's an off licence over the road). The menu is all very tempting and the food is just great, hence I've been countless times.: choose anything and you won't be disappointed. Good veggie choice, and the guys will adapt dishes according to your taste (my partner always asks for extra ginger, for example, and I quite often go for a paneer jalfrezi, which isn't actually on the menu). Also, unlike lots of other curry houses, dishes taste different! Curries are around £7, and this includes a poppadom and chutney and a choice of either rice, nan or a couple of chappatis. Oh, and a Murray Mint when the bill arrives! In short, it's just great, my favourite restaurant by a mile, and the food is superior to the fancier places on Maid Marian Way. Alright, it may not have the sophistication or refinement seen elsewhere, but it can't be beaten. GIve it a go - you WON'T be disappointed!
