Met a friend here as it is quite convenient just off the A3 in Guildford. Good menu with a wide selection of dishes. We both enjoyed our meals. Nicely decorated, friendly staff. Will definitely go back, and will try their Sunday buffet.

Close to office, so thought I'd give it a bash. Struggle with a good Indian in Guildford, and while this didn't blow me away, I would return. Good staple food without any fuss.

Popped in during the day and asked if they could deliver to Milford, the guy checked my postcode and said no problem just call early. I did, placed the order, then got a call back 5 minutes later from someone else saying we are too far. Tried to reason and also offered to pay to get it here. After some... More

Dear Sir, Very disappointed to hear your review. However, we welcome your view. First of all, you are well over 5 miles radius to delivery service. Yes, my colleague said that you made the enquiry but he heard you said Guildford NOT Milford. It was his misunderstanding. When you made the call I explained you very politely and also explained...

We decided to go takeaway as we had a lovely bottle of wine at home. Food didn't disappoint, although it was too early (but fine in the oven). Really easy on-line ordering. Not as good as the restaurant experience but food excellent.

A reasonable décor, but - very oddly for an Indian restaurant - they didn't seem keen to provide spicy food. No hot pickle on the pickle tray and a chicken Jalfrezi with absolutely no hint of chillis. I pointed out the description on the menu and they provided a plate of fresh chillis, but odd that the chef didn't know... More

Had a takeaway meal. Poor quality brown chicken. No flavour. Dall Tarka was watery no consistency and hardly any lentils.

Attended with a group of friends. We didn't have starters, but we had quiet a big selection of dishes for our main meals. They were all delicious. The service was good and the price was appropriate for the meal. A very nice setting with great food.

Visited the Shahin with relatives who live close by and was impressed with the friendly welcome and the quality of the food. they do all the standard items you expect in a british indian restaurant plus some specials like the almost sweet and sour Chicken Rajastani. A very good meal in a friendly restaurant well worth a visit if you... More

We hadn't visited the Shahin for a couple of years but found the service and food to be as good and reliable as ever. Friendly atmosphere, good selection of Indian/Bangladeshi food, All the dishes one would expect. No draught larger available but the bottled Kingfisher and Bangla larger hit the spot.

We regularly order from the Shahin (they will deliver within a 3 mile radius) and have also eaten in the restaurant on special occasions. There is plenty to choose fro m and the service is friendly, respectful and efficient. Would highly recommend.
