My partner and I were lucky enough to secure a late booking, he is a major curry fan, and says it was the best curry he's ever had, I would have to agree! We were blown away by the hospitality, and the food! The place was bustling busy but that did not effect the service! Beautiful atmosphere! This is defiantly... More

Oh my days! Every time I eat here it's heaven. The staff are so lovely and ask after my family and want to know how I'm doing. The atmosphere is great and the food is an absolute sensation. To this day I've never found a better curry. Shaan you are my heros!

You can always be assured of good service and great food here. It gets busy, which is a good sign in itself, so book ahead . Prices arent cheap but are good value

We went very early on a Thursday evening - but even at 6:00pm the restaurant had a nice atmosphere - we were warml greeted and served with a smile. The popadoms (the source of disappointment in some places) were warm, beautifully crisp and fresh. Our main courses were exceptionally good. I had a delicious Chicken Dansak whilst my wife went...

Whether you have tried Indian food before or not,this is a must. Myself and my Wife were both Indian food "virgins"....not anymore! The food in this restaurant is exquisite and the embience of the restaurant is terrific. Attentiveness of staff was far more than excellent and the friendliness of the Shaan owner (Eric) is like that of a close friend.... More

Whilst in Witney I visited this Indian restaurant establishment on a very busy Friday night,always a good sign. After a short wait I was squeezed into a table. My starter was chicken kebab which left me disappointed The main course was ok if a little hotter than expected.,but what I wasn't expecting was to be asked to finish my drink... More

Always great service and always busy, booking not always essential, may have a spare table. Large groups would need to book! This is my favourite place to have a curry, the chicken balti sag is heaven!
