Up till now, I've concentrated on Hotel reviews. However, it occurred to me that I visit more eateries than I do Hotels and when I am in unknown territory its good to have a review of these.
So, the Shaha - This is a 2nd floor Restaurant with the entrance tucked away just off Botchergate. The first impressions when entering are that the decor is somewhat 'plain' compared to other Indian establishments - do not let this put you off! I have eaten here 3 times over the last 2 months and the food & service has been good on all occasions. I would recommend that you include a chicken dish in your food choice, as the chef appears to have a great understanding of marinating his poultry and my best description is 'succulent'!
If you'd like to take my advice a little further, I suggest that you order the Chicken Pakora - its devine!
If you're in Carlisle (which is a very lively place - particularly Botchergate), then don't miss the Shaha if you fancy a damn good Indian meal!
