I have been coming here for years and always love it. I still do love it, but I am very disappointed with their new menu and the price change. I always order the big meal vegetarian, which was great value. It use to come with rice, salad two curries, lentil soup and naan bread. Now, the prices went up and... More

I love this place. Stop reading and just go! Subzi chicken with beef samosas! The decor is muted but Pal Sandhu ruins an excellent business.

We take out from here often and always say it's the best curry we have ever had ! It's small and we don't eat in as close by .. Excellent value also .. Phone ahead and go pick up as it's worth it !

I really like this place for a quick lunch or dinner. Eat in at one of the few tables or take out to go if you want. For about $8-9 I got a lentil curry, naan, and side salad. The curry was piping hot, well-spiced and creamy, and the naan was warm and fresh. I really enjoyed the salad dressing... More

Went to Shaan's Curry House for the first time today, after hearing great reviews from some co-workers. I got the butter chicken delight with a samosa, and it was amazing! Such a great authentic feel to the restaurant which made the experience that much better! If you are ever in the area, and you enjoy Indian food, then definitely go... More

A hole in the wall in a local strip mall, but don't overlook this restaurant! Well known locally, Shaan is known for great classic curries. It's also now available for delivery through SkipTheDishes! Their Curry Chicken Meal, Chana Chicken and Butter Chicken are always great choices, but make sure to get extra naan! Great food for the price.

Had lunch here with some of my colleagues. We ordered ahead and picked up our meals. They food was ready (and hot) when we arrived so pickup was easy. I ordered the Butter Chicken Delight (I ordered this dish because it is the only chicken dish they offer with purely white meat). It comes with rice or naan bread (I... More

The butter chicken was the best I have eaten in Ottawa. The beef curry was nice and had a bit of heat (probably tamed down a bit for me). We ordered a Big Meal combo with extra naan and two vegetable samosa's. The service was fast and staff were very polite. My only complaint would be that I didn't think... More

The flavors are very good. Naan bread is well prepared. The owner is on site most of the day and very humble. Staff is attentive and quick. Prices are good and they have daily specials. Parking is a bit of a problem, limited and on fast moving street.

Went there for lunch. Ordered dinner for two. The prices are good. The butter chicken was ok. The rest wasn't very good. Couldn't really tell what the lentil mixture was, it had kidney beans in it. Weird for indian cuisine. Heard the microwave going before getting our meal. They reheated it in styrofoam. Not impressed.
