“My favourite Sunday Lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2010

This is the place to go for Sunday lunch. Good choice of starters, main course (choice of meat) and fresh vegetables. Puddings to die for, especially the lemon cheesecake! Wonderful personnel and service. Tables outside for smokers until it starts to pour with rain when unfortunately, like everywhere else, we have to sit inside and nip out for a quick puff! I have lived in Kyrenia for 9 years and the only place to ever beat Al Shaheen for Sunday lunch was the Coffee Stop which unfortunately closed down a couple of years ago. I would recommend this restaurant 100%. Of course, it is open 7 days a week, and also offers an Indian menu and a la carte European.

“This is more like it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2010

If you like Indian English curry, then you can do a lot worse.
this was the second curry house we had tried, the other was Jashans, and it knocked spots off it.
staff very friendly, and the food was tasty and plentiful, well worth a visit.

“So good we went twice in one week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2010

This is the best curry i have ever had,was there twice last week (30th July) it was busy both nights we went, which speaks for itself,the service was excellent, exstensive menu i can't speak highly enough of the food there was so much of it, and very reasonably priced, especially the Saturday evening menu for 23Lira which includes a drink.We even had desserts,they were georgeous. On the Thursday night they had an Elvis impersonator which had a really good atmosphere.It is in Karakum on the main road into Kyrenia.
