After placing our order, we were told that they'd run out of seafood! Few minutes later were told they did have some! Food was delicious. Disappointed no puds at all or coffee.

The place is a bit tired and it could do with a makeover, it is not in the best of locations but the food is very good and it is good value for money, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable worth a visit if you are a curry nut!

Been to the Shanti a few times now and whilst it is ok it is not the best in town. If you like a late night meal and a beer ideal you will not be rushed.

Visited here on a Monday night. Good quality food and good service. Meal for three with starters, mains, and drinks ( not alcoholic) £40 which given the amount of food was good value.

We called in on a Saturday night knowing that not having a reservation would not be a problem. The waiter who made the Shanti/Saffron so enjoyable has now left and moved to the Merchant Spice but nevertheless we were greeted with broad smiles and gven the choice of where to sit. We ordered popadums and a bottle of red wine.... More
