Stopped in for lunch buffet, very good on all levels (price, food, and service). I'm not an Indian food expert so I just tried a little bit of several of the options and wasn't disappointed with any of it.

Best Indian in Cincinnati, always have your order ready before you even sit down. Chicken vindaloo is the best sound

I've eaten at this place several times. The food is delicious and the service fast and friendly. Portion sizes are quite large (one meal and order of Naan is enough to feed me twice) and reasonably priced. I've eaten in and ordered carry out, and it's consistent either way. They offer a lunch buffet from 11-2 but I can't speak... More

A friend told me Shaan was better than Ambar. I went for lunch so it was a buffet. Since Ambar does not have a buffet a true comparison was not possible. But, the buffet was outstanding. Wonderful tastes. My only complaint - the tandoori chicken was dry. I will certainly be back for dinner.

Every time I have eaten here, the food has been good, and this time was no exception. But the ladies working were so rude. I know it was at the end of the lunch buffet, but it was still unacceptable for the staff to be curt. They quickly informed us that the buffet closed in 30 minutes when we arrived... More

My fiancee and I recently moved to the Cincinnati area from Lexington, where we had tried our fair share of Indian restaurants. We both agreed that Shaan Indian Cuisine was one of the best we had either had the pleasure to try. We were seated by the polite hostess right away upon arriving at Shaan, and she brought us our...

This was my first time here and from the reviews, I was expecting great food and service. I got neither. The food was average and lacking in flavor and spice. The service was down right horrible. I had to wait 20 minutes for them to get me something to drink. I will not be back and I would not recommend... More

We ordered carry out and it was ready when I walked in- and still quite hot when I got home! We had the lamb korma and the lamb with mushrooms. Both came with rice. The portions are generous to say the least and the prices were good. The meals were soooooo good! The people who work there are very friendly... More

We ate there with our daughter's family for a Mother's Day dinner--our first time but not theirs. We weren't sure what a strip mall restaurant would be like but we were pleasantly surprised. The interior was very nice with many booths and a few large tables. The food was very good with everyone liking their dinners and the server/manager was... More
