After fasting for 18 hours i thought i would got to eat out at a buffet with family. The poppadoms were stale i predict a day or two old,the salad was just not appealing to eye as it did not look fresh. moving on to starters the most bland food iv ever tasted.I filled my plate with a bit of everything but honestly can say it was rank, could not finish my plate and was put of main course i moved on to dessert. Another disappointment absolutely shockingly poor quality they cant even get jelly right all traditional dessert tasted bland and also tasted nothing like they should have. All this was followed by the worst customer service, i was told i would get charged for wastage of food as i struggled finishing anything of my plates I laughed at them and replied do you get concept of buffet?? If after 18 hours of not eating i felt their food was so bad i dread to think what it would taste like on a normal day.I felt sick all the way home. THE NEXT TIME YOUR HUNGRY AND THINKING OF EATING AT SHAHI QILA JUST HAVE SOME DOG BISCUITS.

Wasa little skepticle about the place having read some or the reviews, but this place is great! Food was good. Thankfully I had an Asian friend with me to tell me what some of the dishes were but great food and service. Only thing to complain about was one of the waiters kept getting the Hoover out after every table had left which was a little annoying. But overall, loved the place. Well definitely be going back!

It doesn't take much to get all the staff to wear a uniform does it? All the waiters swan around in black attire that don't match each others and then wear trainers! Trainers in a restaurant!? It looks really scruffy. They swarm around grabbing every empty plate, often interrupting conversation which is highly annoying and rude. Clear my table when EVERYONE has finished eating, please!
Came here last year, and the building was a state. Peeling walls and it just needed a deep clean. To be honest, this time round, the place HAS had a lick of paint and looks much better for it.
Food is alright FOR THE PRICE. Please bear in mind you're paying £9.99 for a buffet, cheap as chips, therefore you get what you pay for. Some of the dishes are swimming in oil but majority are edible and some quite enjoyable (try the chicken pakora and the chicken tikka masala). A disappointment was the desert. Very little choose from - slop, jelly, and more slop. A nice selection of cakes or even ice creams, or fruit would be much more suitable.
Would return again but it wouldn't be my first choice.

Went to a wedding reception, the entrance was dirty, it needed a really good clean, the toilets were filthy, a spot of bleach wouldn't go amiss. The food was bland and I asked the waitress what the chicken dish was and she said she didn't know. I found it very disappointing, considering I looked at their website and was really looking forward to going. Sorry, that was just my opinion.
