We are regulars here as really enjoy the food and staff are always pleasant. However despite booking table way in advance it's makes no difference you just wait for next available table. Having invited friends this spoilt the night waiting in cold doorway. Feels like it's about getting as many people as possible in and out the door which spoils... More

It's too crowded, busy and noisy but we put up with that (reluctantly) as the food is normally reliably good. However at our last visit the Tawa was very greasy and made my husband ill. Not sure we will be back for quite a while.

Love Shaban's curries. Really authentic and big portions. Need to book though as always really busy. Their takeaways are just as good as the ones served in the restaurant. Would be my number one choice of the Indian restaurants in Boldmere.

On a return trip to the U.K. We visited Shalan for their £11 curry night - Wednesday. Starter, main and naan or rice and coffee. Choices were broad, restaurant was busy and staff were extremely attentive. We'd been to Shaban in previous visits and it had been the site of out wedding reception in the U.K. In 2012. Would recommend

It all started so well....greeted nicely as is usual here....but then descended into disappointment. Only 2 popadoms between us, felt that was mean. Starters - my king prawn was delicious, I would have been happy with 2 portions and wouldn't have wanted a main course, (had I known what the main course was going to be like I definitely would...

I have eaten here for many years, the food is ALWAYS brilliant and the staff lovely. I do however hate the way that there are too many tables crammed into such a small space, the people at the next tables are virtually sitting on yours, no privacy and can be very loud when its busy. I Booked a table and... More

We arranged a group meal and booked back in November.On checking the day before they had no record,this was corrected on the phone.On arrival it appeared they once again had no record of the booking. Once the order was taken the food arrived quickly. Some of my colleagues commented that some of the waiter's were a bit abrupt. Food was... More

Ok... It's the lead up to Xmas and the place was heaving with works Xmas parties....It's just great how they served a table of 12 people at the same time and got the orders right. The food was top notch and service was great. I can't fault it and will be returning.
