We tried this a few weeks ago - several people had recommended it. My son and daughter both ordered vegetarian dishes, which they said tasted good. My first choice was not available so I ordered the prawn khorma - usually a safe bet. The first disappointment was that the sauce, rather than the usual creamy tomatoey colour was a greyish white. It tasted of very little - certainly not of any of the spices one would expect in a khorma. When we paid the bill we asked to take the leftovers with us - but the waiter completely forgot to bring them and we were so involved in our conversation we forgot to remind him. I won't be going back to this restaurant.

My friends advised we try this restaurant stating that it was really great. I went with high hopes and was disappointed to find that the food which usually has a pink / orange colour was the same shade of white as the rice! I wonder if they were short of spices because it was so tasteless, I may as well have eaten only rice! Terrible restaurant, will rather avoid!

The Shahi Khana has awesome curries. This one is still run by the original owner who started at the Shamiyana in Edenvale. All the curries are awesome and very reasonably priced.
