“An amazing curry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

The food is amazing. I have had takeaway and restaurant food from Shamoli for years. We ate in last week and the food and service were amazing. The only thing I could improve on would be the surroundings. However, if you are a foodie then give the Shamoli a bash. By far, this has to be the best Indian cuisine in Knutsford.

“Knutsfords Best Indian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We've eaten at Shamoli on a number of occasions the consistent quality of the food is incredible. Its been in Knutsford for about 20 years now so clearly they are doing something right. The restaurant is nice and relaxing and they are family friendly. It also lacks the pretentiousness of the other indian restaurant in Knutsford. Give it a try you won't be dissapointed !!!

“Cope very well with large parties”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Went with a group of 20 for the Sunday evening special set menu. We had pre ordered, and the staff coped really well with the large group. Only comment is that it was a bit cramped but it is only a small room so not much can be done about that.

“Still the best Indian in Knutsford”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Great staff, Great Good this is without a doubt the best Indian Food in Knutsford. It has however the worst location relative to the others (down some steps in a basement on King Street) Do not let this put you off however as you don't eat the view. It is small but very clean, very nicely decorated and it has a friendly ambience. The staff are fantastic. The Balti Exotica is definitely one worth trying.

“I've had better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Two of us found the curries a little bland. I ordered extra heat in my Balti and it was still bland. The Bombay potatoes were hotter. The service is always good, the staff are extremely friendly but I've not been bowled over by the flavour of the curries for some time, a lot taste basically the same but with subtle differences. And steer clear of the merlot - it was drier than an Arab's sandal.
