We've been here quite a few times now and the menu is wonderful with food very fresh and tasty. We had the Sunday buffet lunch today and it is good value too, various dishes replenished frequently. I prefer the dishes from the menu though and will definitely be back again. Compliments to all at Shantii.

Couldn't recommend highly enough, very attentive and the food was fresh and delicious. If you like a curry, you have to try this place. We will be back. Tuesday is £10.99 deal day too!

We called in on Sunday after a friend recommending the Sunday buffet. The food was absolutely gorgeous, the staff couldn't be anymore helpful or welcoming and great value for money.

Very average restaurant indeed, staff need a customer service course in how to speak to people. Meal was ok but is on the expensive side so expected better! The Balti house is far superior for food!

Me and my boyfriend love it here! Food is excellent and the service is also fantastic. We usually leave a restaurant with a doggy bag but we never do here because the food is so yummy! 5*s!
