We had an early dinner here and were the only customers. The food arrived quickly and was some of the best Indian food I have had. The rooms could use some updating and enhancement to match the richness of the food.

We visited for an early dinner. The portions we're quite ample and very tasty. This is a small restaurant with seating for maybe 20 to 25 people. It could use some enhancements.

Best takeaways and dining in is not shabby either. Super friendly staff. Suggest that you choose a favorite sauce and the alter if you are vegetarian or pescatarian. They accomdate dietary requirements with ease. Not cheap but not over the top either.

Although the curries here are different to the ones that we were used to back in the UK, they are still very flavoursome and the chef's have no problem spicing them up for you if you need it. The manager is a really friendly guy...More

There are certain expectations of food presented in Indian restaurants and this is based on over 40 years of eating in them. So it was disappointing to find a restaurant that thinks the correct way to serve naan bread is to cook it on an...More

We started coming to Shahi in the late 1990s when the kids were small. We used to order rice and bread for the littlies while we gorged on prawns malabari and malai kofta and beef vindaloo, (don't get me started). Then, one day, one of...More
