Had a take away order from this restaurant, its moderately priced. Kebab is good , the curries are okish and rotis are good. Overall good for an one time dinner.

Quick low-budget halal meals that taste pretty darn good. I highly recommend the nihari (beef stew with melted tendons!) and the naan glazed with butter. Pure indulgence. Open till late at night (3am) on Fridays and Saturdays.

Tandoori chicken is to die for ! If you miss the roadside tandoori chicken from India ,this is the place to be in the bay area . Go for the breast piece ,leg piece has got quite less(half) flesh compared to the breast piece. The main course was a downer though.

We had dinner at Shah restaurant, non vegetarian combo package and garlic naan with dhal curry are ordered. The combo package is really worth the money paid, all the spices are absorbed well into the chicken as well as garlic naan also very tasty, a bit different with garlic naan that we used to have in any other restaurants.

Food, mediocre at best. Worse, final prices charged are ALWAYS higher than those on menu! Management then argues that "prices were revised" and will produce one menu that does depict revised prices. But only one menu -- that is not within access to unsuspecting customers! Also, bathroom waters overflow into dining area, and if complained, management retorts "Whats big deal... More

Shah is not a fancy place; it looks more like a food court than a restaurant, but it is kept clean. Depending on what you order, you may or may not need to include a plate with the utensils you bring to your table -- some dishes are served expecting you to have an empty plate waiting. The various tandoori... More
