“Excellent food, good portions, reasonable price.”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

We have been visiting this restuarant for five years and nver had a bad meal. We went last week with friends for a birthday celebration and were not disappointed. Never been in the winter before and found there were two log fires and the reastuarant was warm, welcoming and cosy. The food as usual was excellent and the portions were more than ample. Staff and service were impeccable and the meal was finished with complimentary coffee and brandy. Well done Ashraf & Imitaz.

“Bland food”
Reviewed October 26, 2011

Disappointed very bland tasteless food and dull menu. Not cheap - UK prices so would not go again. Lacked any atmosphere only positive was that the Service was good.

“Excellent”
Reviewed October 17, 2011

A lovely meal was had by my wife and I but be warned they are generous with their portions. We had been given the tip by fellow hotel guests to skip a starter and share a main with a couple of sides, this we did and there was more than enough. We ordered lamb rogan josh (comes with rice and chapati), tarka dhal and bombay potatoes. All were well spiced and very tasty. Service was excellent and the price was very good. Recommended.

“Luckily no karaoke here!”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

Went to this restaurant with my husband a couple of friends we had met at our hotel. Originally we were going to Punjab next door but on arrival they had karaoke (actually it was a proper singer who sounded dreadful!) so decided to try Al Shaheen instead as we were all kebab's out!
The food was great and they even asked how spicy you wanted your meal which was great if unusual. As usual whenever you go for an Indian, we ordered way too much but it was all very good. the highlight had to be the chicken tikka masala - the pieces of chicken were massive and full of flavour. The others who had been to the Punjab said this was better.
Would recommend this if you fancy an alternative to Turkish!

“You wont be disappointed”
Reviewed August 18, 2011

A great restaurant.
A good varied menu, great quality for a good price.
The staff are really friendly and attentive. The country & western music, mixed with The Carpenters greatest hits was a little surreal, but hey, we ended up singing along anyway!
