On 26th April , I along with my friends had dinner and to our surprise rotten meat with pathetic smell was served and when we called f&b service people and the manager, we were simply told that it happens sometimes and the same will not...be charged. This reply was shocking to us and now we doubt quality of food being served on routine basis… Since, the restaurant is situated in boulevard rare which is famous amount tourists. Hence, strongly recommend not to visit this place…. This restaurant is a disgrace to hospitality sector of Kashmir.More

Horrible Food, I would say Rotten Food. Advise not to take any chance of having food there. I visited there with my friends and it was a huge disappointment. The Restaurant Manager was pathetic in his approach. Couldn’t give a solution.

Had visited the restaurant on 26th April 2022 for Iftaar with friends . Choosing shamyana as on option over other good restaurants in valley was horrible and big mistake. We decided to have wazwaan for our iftaar meal and ordered the same from the menu...with almost all 5 main cuisine from wazwaan menu. To our surprise all the dishes we ordered were served in a one go even the Gustaba were put on our table before serving the rice to the plates which should not be the case. Then we started to have our food as per the individual serving and everything was going good till the time we start having the Gustaba and to our surprise when we tasted the same it was stinking and was rotten from inside. Immediately we called the Resturant server and asked him to check the same and he picked back the same from the table and nothing is being informed to us, we waited for long and no one came back to us to address the issue and in the meantime other person came and started to clear the plates with rice on it from our table without asking or clarification about the issue we had with the dish. Then we called the restaurant manager to enquire about the matter and he also acknowledged that the same was stinking and was clueless. Again to our surprise the restaurant manager told us that they had cancelled the dish of their own without checking or informing the client . This was very unprofessional act of said manger and spoiled all the good mood and we left the place with paying full bill for the rotten food we had. Unfortunately the so called good restaurant in valley are not maintaining the quality standards of the food.More

At par with any star restaurant regarding quality and decor with ample car parking. Prices on the higher side but justified by the quality.

A meal at Shamiana has been a must every time I visit Kashmir for the last 15 years. You will find a vast variety of Kasmiri authentic cuisine and cuisine of other parts of India.
