My husband and I love to revisit The Shandaar. Food is always consistently good. And the service A1.. The Best Indian restaurant by far in the local area. See you soon Denise & Lee (chef) x

Thought customer service was excellent throughout, very welcoming and upbeat. Food was a little disappointing. Meat samosas tasted quite artificial however main course was enjoyably although lacked spice and kick to all the dishes

Excellent, quick service from friendly, attentive staff/ We had three different meals and all were well prepared and served quickly. We go there every month or two and have never had a bad experience. Highly recommended!

This place has had a refit since it's poor standards rating but still the food is below average and lazy, this includes the buffet, takeaway and dine in. We have given it a fare amount of chances but no more.

Since our favourite Indian closed down we needed an alternative. After testing out 5 or 6 we tried the shandaar - we wont be testing any others. Takeaway - great food Eat in - even better. Thanks for the great service and keep it up.

If you like your food served fairly slowly then this is the place 20mins for starters, 40mins for main meal and some food didn't appear at all. When it did arrive it was good but the wait has put me off going again. By the time we let it was time to go to bed.

Myself, my wife, and several friends (mainly couples) went to the Shandaar for a meal for my birthday at the start of August... a table was booked for fourteen and none of us were disappointed... We arrived at 9:15pm after having a chat and couple of drinks at the Pelican pub next door where we met from 7:30/8pm... We arrived... More
