We're regulars to the Shama, been going regularly for many years. Never has a bad experience, indeed Shama has been a favourite of ours. We called bank holiday Monday late evening, the restaurant was reasonably busy. A friendly welcome, like their revamped seating area by the bar, all good so far.

This is the best Asian restaurant around. Food is amazing. Always cooked to perfection. Favourite dish has to be the Garabaldi! Staff are always great too. 10/10 and a must if you visit Huddersfield :-)

I have been going to this place for years and it is consistently good. The best bit about it is the service - they're really good.

We have as a family visited Shama for a fair few years now. Excellent food great value for money, no fuss ordering, with friendly staff. Beautiful refurbishment and very authentic. Their not licensed so you can take in your own alcohol but soft drinks are served on the premises. A must visit.

Consistently great food over a decade of eating out. Guys catered our wedding - which was fantastic. Broad menu with lots of veggie options and wide range of curries. Always a good welcome, fast seating, excellent service and food and good price. Bring your own booze...
