The Sheesh Mahal is consistently good (although we have found the Sunday buffet to be a bit below what they serve up the rest of the week - perhaps this is inevitable with a buffet?). On our latest visit we went on a Saturday night and enjoyed the usual high standard of food and service that we have come to expect here.

The only word to describe the pappadums in the Sheesh is superb! On this occasion, we were tempted by the set meal for two offer, which comprised pappadums (extra charge!), plus a kebab platter to share for the first course. The mains were lamb bhuna, chicken tikka masala, pilau rice, and mixed vegetables.

The kebab starter was moist, tender and delicious, and the chicken tikka masala was the nicest dish I have tasted in an Indian restaurant anywhere. The portions were also big, and I am pleased to say that the food was so delicious that I managed to finish my meal. Sadly, though, we were both too full to sample the desserts! One word of warning though, the sauces are very rich indeed, and so may not be to everyone's taste. Ask the friendly staff if you would like something a bit lighter, as they are happy to amend dishes to your personal taste.

The Saturday night atmosphere was pleasantly chilled and relaxed.

Quite simply, this is the best curry house by far in the Llanelli area. At around £30 including the extra pappadums and three (non alcoholic) drinks, we were delighted with the cost as well.

Fantastic meal and great service. We had a chicken Biryani and Lamb Passanda to die for.

Our friends (8 of us in total) really loved their food too and the price was soooo reasonable.

A Llanelli institution, this has been open for years and has not changed much in those years, (apart from some superficial changes to the decor.) They know what they're doing and they do it well, can't go wrong.

We went to the restaurant for their all you can eat buffet, we then ordered poppadoms and were told that there would be a charge for this, we felt we had to say yes, it cost us £7 for 6 poppadoms and chutneys.
Clearly not an all you can Eat buffet, as you have to pay for an item that should be included
The food was nice but the staff didn't seem bothered, the price is expensive in llanelli
They didn't have any kids drinks except squash in a glass not ideal with a little one

Travelled from Ferryside while on holiday with my son and daughter in law after reading the reviews on trip advisor. It was worth it! Had the most enjoyable evening.
Good food and good service at a very reasonable price. I will definitely go back.
