Visited last night for a family get together, 14 of us in total. The service was friendly as always, we had booked in advance and the table was ready upon arrival, the staff were welcoming and took the orders including dishes not exactly on the menu no problem. The makeover is a nice improvement. The atmosphere is good and the... More

We use to frequent this restaurant on a regular basis a few years ago but stopped as the food was hit and miss and the décor was a little tired. Returned last weekend for fathers day (treat from my boys) as it had recently undergone a refurbishment. Pleasantly surprised as it has been brought into the 21st century with clean... More

We made the mistake of ordering a takeaway meal from Shahenshah, we should have known better as they have got an order wrong before. When the order was called in the noise in the background was terrible and the person taking the order rang off without reading it back. When it was finally delivered there were main courses missing and... More

Can't fault the place really, as a friend of mine works there occasionally. He made it a great evening for me and pulled me out of the mud - hadn't booked anywhere for Valentines day !! Great food and service and very reasonable.

Really delicious! We haven't been here for a number if years but it hasn't changed much. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was yummy, served well, nice and hot, and good portion sizes. The toilets were clean but could do with an upgrade. Overall, enjoyable evening.

I have been to this restaurant over 50 times and it never disappoints. Sunday night special. Chicken chat to start was fabulous Chicken madras was perfect. Well spiced and flavoursome without blowing my head off. Food was good as always, service a little slow at times but overall very good experience.

Thank Richard W
