“Family celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

This is a gem, and you would drive passed if you didn't know just how good the food is. There is also an added bonus in that you can take your own drink, which makes a good night out not too expensive. The staff can not do enough for you and the food is second to none. If you haven't been, you've missed out, I would recommend it if you live in the area. Clean, fantastic food and great staff what's not to like.

Yummy food lovely staff cheap as chips and by taking your own booze you can have a great party!!
The vegetarian curries were delicious and great choice and good value.nothing too much trouble for the staff. Very hard to beat this for the price.

“Lovely grub!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

I've been meaning to write this review for a long time now. AJ and his team really deserve the success' of Shama.
I visit most weeks with my partner and we are never disappointed. It always provides top quality food (whether that be dine in or take-out!)
At first I was apprehensive about the transition to 'bring your own alcohol' however most people treat this policy respectfully.
AJ is a treat on arrival and chats away making you feel like family friends. He can advise to all tastes and does this perfectly.
The food is delicious and very fresh.
Jav deserves a special mention too - he is my favourite there and always makes sure we have a good chat - even if it is about the mushroom that once found its way into my 'Bukhari' - non mushroom dish!!! A joke between us now...

Try this restaurant - you will not be disappointed and you will end up there weekly like us!!
