Three of us took a taxi last Friday from Tynemouth to Whitley Bay and decided the Shahenshah was the Indian Restaurant of choice but on arrival at 9.30pm we nearly decided not to go in because the place was empty. There are several Indian Restaurants in a small area and maybe there's not enough diners to go round. The Shahenshah... More

We have regularly visited the Shahensha over the years. The restaurant recently undergone a large refurbishment and is now very nice and comparable to some of the new restaurants that have opened in the area. 6 of us went for a meal and had a variety of dishes and we all agreed that this was some of the nicest Indian...

We came here Saturday evening around 9pm, were seated near the back in a cosy corner (possibly because we weren't dressed as smart as everyone else!). I grew in Whitley bay and my parents came here regularly, since then it's had a renovation and it looks lovely inside. The service was really good and the food was also extremely tasty.... More

We have visited this restaurant before. We have always had excellent food and service here. However on this occassion we were amazed! The restaurant had been completely renovated and it was the wow factor. New tables and crushed velvet seating. Really modern lighting and pleasant background music. Even the toilets were renovated. And as usual, the food was excellent, reasonably... More

We popped in here when our usual haunt was closed for the summer holidays. They have a Friday night special menu that includes poppadoms, a starter, main with rice or a naan bread, a side dish between 2 and a dessert for £11.95. The portions were generous and everything tasted great. We will definitely visit again.

Visited last night for a family get together, 14 of us in total. The service was friendly as always, we had booked in advance and the table was ready upon arrival, the staff were welcoming and took the orders including dishes not exactly on the menu no problem. The makeover is a nice improvement. The atmosphere is good and the... More
