There was 13 of us having a meal for a birthday. The meal was fantastic and well served. We started with pickle tray and poppadoms and then had a starter prior to the main course. The service was superb, staff couldn't do enough for us and everyone came away satisfied. Can highly recommend this restaurant.

We have been dining regularly at The Shama for many years but never thought to write a review until now. My wife and I are curry lovers and have tried so many places over the years but non are anywhere near as good as The Shama. The food here is top quality and every dish is a taste sensation. Our...

Absolutely top notch food. Dead cheap. Great service. Quality as good as high end Indian restaurants. It's bring your own booze. Good job this isn't in Leeds City Centre or even centre of huddersfield as they could charge a lot more. Will use it as regular curry night from now on

Lovely meal last night and lovely staff at this restaurant. I would recommend the Balti Bukari - nicest curry I've had in a while, and beautiful thin chapattis too! I like the layout of the restaurant, with booths around the edge, which make the dining experience a bit more intimate. Beer and wine available at the Railway pub next door,... More

Just had the privilege of paying £20 for taxis both ways to sit and drink our own booze and basically sit in a classroom. There was a party of school children in the restaurant who were so loud you couldn't even hear yourself think. Loads of families with young kids doing what young kids do. Been going down there for...

Had a lovely evening after being recommended. Very busy when we arrived but only had to wait 15 minutes as you cannot book. Quite noisy when seated as there were a lot of families with young children in. Food was excellent not very quick service but worth waiting for on the whole. It's bring your own drinks so was good...

Service was good and staff friendly and welcoming. Fish pakoras were very tasty. Chicken and keema jalfrazi was good too. Would go again for sure!

We're regulars to the Shama, three of us visited Friday early evening. The restaurant was reasonably busy, we received a friendly greeting by the owner, who invited us to a seated area to view the menu. A short time later, our order was taken, we were then shown to our table - all very efficient! Do like the seating arrangements.... More
