Can't fault this little Indian restaurant. Food is always superb and really well priced. Staff are friendly and attentive. Usually no need to book as tables are readily available - I just can't see why it's never busier! Will be returning. Thanks again!

Not much to say - friendly staff provide the best 'Indian/Bangladeshi' food in Wakefield. We've tried bigger restaurants nearby and they are pretty soul-less and the food is pretty soul-less too. This place is great - has the right atmosphere and the food is fantastic (my wife really recommends the Tandoori Fish).

We have been dining here for around twelve years. Not been for a while but visited again tonight. As ever, outstanding food and service. Have dined in many curry houses over the years but have to say that this is still, by far the best.

We visited the Shabana for a mid-week treat and were pleased with the food (good biryanis), pleasant atmosphere, and value for money. We'll definitely return.

Very disappointed by the lack of spice and flavor, four us all had different dishes and the collective assessment was bland, not sure how this restaurant scored so well? Maybe we went on a night when the standard dropped.
