“Best curry in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Visited this restaurant many times and even when 12 or more of us the service and food have always been excellent. The fact that you can take your own alcohol is also good as it cuts the cost of the meal considerably (well it does with my friends). Would recommend this restaurant without any hesitation, good selection of meals and the staff are extremely helpful. You can even go online and check out the menu before your visit.

“Good basic Indian food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

I've been to the Shajahan many times over the years, partly because it's 10 minutes walk from home but also because it offers good basic Indian food at a reasonable price and you can take your own drinks along. From a romantic anniversary meal with my wife to family get togethers with 8 adults and 6 children it's always good service, the staff are friendly and the food is delivered pretty quickly. One tip - as a veggie Mutter Paneer is one of my favourite dishes but they serve it with chick peas - however if you ask them they do it with the usual green peas. It gets busy most evenings so although you're likely to get seated in the week it's advisable to book beforehand, especially at weekends.

“A decent curry house where it's being your own booze.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

I like this place. The food's good and as you can bring your own booze, it makes it very affordable. The tables are quite close together and it can get busy (as it's a small place), so it's better when there are more than two of you.

Nice food, presented well, staff obliging and reasonable prices too. Not a romantic setting but great to eat out with friends. Lots of choice on the menu and staff could'nt do enough for us! - will certainly return
