“Tasty and good value!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

There are always hawkers trying to lure you into the restaurants in the Brick Lane and Hanbury Street area saying "theirs" is the best and offering deals - don't be put off by this - they are like the human "voucher" often offering free drinks or side dishes or discounts - its worth hearing what they are offering! The very nice guy who approached us was not pushy and and let us read the menu and make up our own mind - there were some dishes on the menu I hadn't tried so we decided to give it a try. We weren't disappointed. The lamb chops starter I had was lovely and my friend enjoyed her prawn puri. The curries were tasty and it was all nicely presented and they were decent sized portions (both the starters and main courses). The staff were patient while we made up our minds as there is a good and varied menu to choose from and the bill was very reasonable for what we had. There are lots of good curry houses to choose from in this area, I have been eating around here for years, but if you end up in this one I don't think you will disappointed!

“Thoroughly average”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

The Shampan was OK. Nothing special and no particular reason to return. Service was very slow (arrived 8pm, order taken 8.40pm, food served 9.15pm) and food was adequate - nice muttar paneer, decent madras, OK bhuna. Indistinguishable from most of Brick Lane, really. I wouldn't rush to return.

“Fairly Priced, great food and exceptional atmosphere”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I went to Shampan with my husband for our anniversary and we had a lovely time. The food was amazing and the service was delightful. The restaurant was very busy but they had enough staff, the waiter that served us was available always when needed. The food was remarkable, the flavours just melt in your mouth. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Cheap and delicious”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We visited after a recommendation in August and it did not disappoint. The service was good, the food was lovely and it was such good value for money. The toilets are pretty sub standard but for what you get you can put up with that. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a good curry.

“Cheap and tasty curry house”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We visited this place as we were in the area and the person on the door said that all food had a 25% discount as to celebrate 25 years of business. The place was busy and the plates coming out looked and smelled enticing. We shared a starter of tandoori lamb chops and they were succulent and slightly charred. This was followed by chicken saag, lamb dopiaza, pilau rice and a plain naan. The portions were generous and very tasty.
