Food is always excellent, and the waiting staff are always extremely pleasant and helpful. It is open late and also very handy for Leeds Station which is an added bonus.

This is the 2nd time we've been here and the chicken shashlik didn't disappoint sooo tasty. My partners Balti was ok but nothing special think there are better dishes. Naan was very good and service was good.

Since the 1970s Shabab restaurants have been fighting against the red-flocked flock of Indian restaurants spreading across the UK in all their tasteless glory. By bringing authenticity and style to Asian cuisine, the Shabab brand has shown that eating Indian isn't just about grabbing a bite with beer. At Shabab we believe in serving freshly prepared great tasting food to our diners in a friendly environment. Our knowledgeable staff is keen to recommend our house specialities or prepare your favourites from our a-la- carte menu to suit your taste.
