Description: Welcome to the Shahib's tripadvisor page. We are a bespoke Indian & Bangladeshi restaurant, our style of cooking is that of Bangladeshi/ Indian homemade feel. We use the freshest spices and herbs along with the tenderest meats to create our unique, fresh and bespoke dishes. We are situated upstairs above the arcade in the heart of Bowness on Windermere. Perfect view of the much appreciated picturesque town center . We can cater for large parties as we have a seperate dining room aswell as our main dining area for 60 covers, be it 8, 10 or 30. We can accomadate without a problem. Our seating arrangements give ample space for customers not tight fit or cramped. Aswell as dining in we offer a takeout service with 30% off total bill.

We visited on a Saturday evening after spotting the bright, purple signs on the main street. The menu has all the dishes you'd expect to see on a comprehensive Indian Menu but there is a good selection of 'Specialities' for the more adventurous diner. Our dishes were very well cooked and packed with flavour. There is more than ample evidence of fresh herbs and spices being used in this kitchen! My Kola Curry was excellent - full of fresh flavour and bay leaves, cassia and chillies galore! The accompanying chappatis were fresh, soft & steaming hot - perfect. The lemon rice was the best I've had in memory. Friendly staff are the final piece of the jigsaw - attentive but unintrusive - and a complimentary Baileys to finish off what was a truly great meal.

Having spent a weekend in Bowness and eating at various restaurants during our stay we were happy to find the jewel in the town for the more adventurous pallete.
First class service and food was excellent.
Jack (the current owner) a very personable guy with a true vision to succeed in his quest to look after his customers to the best of his and his staffs' ability
Highly recommended and would definitely be using the restaurant again.

Thanks

Had a beautiful meal last night starters and mains where spot on, could not fault the food and service, well worth a visit, you will not be disappointed.
I eat out about 3 nights a week in Cramlington where I live and this is one of the best I have had.
