I visited yesterday with my family for the first time since they renovated the entrance. It looks great, really bright and open. The staff are always friendly and attentive and the food is fantastic. The pricing is very reasonable and well worth it when you compare to portion sizes etc. I'd definitely recommend a visit!

This is the best Asian restaurant around. Food is amazing. Always cooked to perfection. Favourite dish has to be the Garabaldi! Staff are always great too. 10/10 and a must if you visit Huddersfield :-)

I have been going to this place for years and it is consistently good. The best bit about it is the service - they're really good.

We have as a family visited Shama for a fair few years now. Excellent food great value for money, no fuss ordering, with friendly staff. Beautiful refurbishment and very authentic. Their not licensed so you can take in your own alcohol but soft drinks are served on the premises. A must visit.
