After being here before .....on a whim decided to visit as had been out all day and didn't want to cook. There was an option of ala cartel or buffet but this wasn't clearly explained , we had to wait for so long to even be asked what we would like to drink even though the waiter was just standing...

Booked this on the hoof as all other curry houses in area were full. Nice decor, busy with locals chowing down. Our table was situated on a mezzanine floor away from the main restaurant floor. It was quite an intimate setting for my lady friend & I. All courses eaten were well prepared & tasty. Staff were all attentive &... More

Sunday night and was offered the Buffet on display which I guess was left over from the Sunday lunch it certainly tasted as if it had, the onion bhaji was dry and very hard, the grilled meats were also dry and hard. We then tried curries which were only warm and not to a legal temperature. Hopefully we don't get... More

How do we know how hot or how spicy the food we order is? We do not all start out 'experts' in such things. Please indicate on menu mild, hot very hot. I like mild Indian but not hot.

I was disappointed purely because there was no indication on menu as to whether ANY dish was MILD, HOT, VERY HOT OR SPICEY etc. I had to keep asking my partner or waiter (very embarrassing). In the end I went for an old faithful. I have been to two other restaurants in this area and both had menus marked to... More

A group of us meet every 3 months & have a curry at The Shahin, The standards are consistently maintained. Tableware is lovely. Staff are attentive. We last visited in January and our only gripe was that we sat across from the 2 entry doors which were constantly both held open at once, often by the staff themselves assisting people... More

Seemed very busy when we went early on a Saturday evening but with several out of the way tables unoccupied I suspect they were short staffed, or perhaps those staff on duty were no empowered. They were beautifully dressed but only some of them appeared to serve customers. Table service was unbelievably off hand and casual. Food okay.

I used to go to Shahin regularly when I lived in Sunbury over 30 years ago. It was typical of its day, dark, red flock wallpaper but it was always very good. Interesting to revisit in the current style even though it the same ownership. It always was popular and reviews suggested for 7pm on a Saturday evening that booking... More

Recently visited this Indian Restaurant with friends, it was not our first time and the previous times the restaurant has always been busy, so was not so aware of the customer service by staff. On this occasion however, there was only one other couple, but they still placed us right at the back in a corner out of the way.... More

Visited this establishment with some extended family on New Year's Day. There was 8 of us and a toddler. Upon arrival we asked for a high chair for the little one which after some confusion they eventually brung out. We booked the table for 6pm and I felt as if the staff were trying to rush us by taking out... More
