Been to this buffet twice now. Food is always hot, fresh and so tasty. Will definitely be a regular from now on. Not loads of choice and service can be a little slow, but the quality of the food is top notch!

We go to the Shandaar quite regular, always good service and lovely food. Worth every penny - if you haven't already, try the chicken bhaji for a starter, really really nice ;)
