Once you get past the shop front exterior, the Shamrat opens into a lovely restaurant pleasantly decorated. I'm extremely fussy with my curry, but nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they were extremely friendly and were willing to add and take away any ingredient's out that I didn't want. It is very reasonably priced, and the food was... More

Been to the Shamrat on a number of occasions with my wife and friends, always had good food and the staff are very friendly, sometimes if its very busy you have to wait a while, but not really a problem. I would definitely recommend.

Me and my partner ordered takeaway from here for first time and it was disgusting! Firstly it took over an hour for the food to arrive despite the fact we live 0.2km from the restaurant! The food arrived cold. Had the bahjis for starter which were okay but not very crispy and very oily! And the main was hands down... More

The decor is contemporary and the lighting is quite low but this seems to work. The staff were friendly and service was prompt although the restuarant was half full so I would expect good prompt service. Good atmosphere and the other patrons were also local which is a good sign. The restuarant layout and table settings cater for everyone whether... More

Well all i can say is i will never set foot in this place again. The service was so bad that my cat would have done a better job. I do not understand the excuses some of these places come up with for having a bad night but being too busy does not wash with me. Customer service is a... More

First time i visited the restaurant with a couple friends and First impressions were really good as I got excellent and quick service and the food was exceptional. The manager was very welcoming and made sure we were comfortable.

We visited for the first time on Saturday evening and as expected for a Saturday it was very busy. We were sat at a table fairly quickly however it 10 minutes for us to offers any drinks or poppadoms. As we had been waiting a while we asked at that point if we could also ordered our mains which we... More

The Shamrat is one of our local Indian restaurants here in Buckhurst Hill. I've probably visited about ten times in three years. Time to add a quick review. The main thing that brings us back here is the service. The welcome from the front of house staff is probably as good as you'd find in any five star establishment. You... More

I live near this restaurant and order takeaways from them as well as visit them regularly. The food is outstandingly good, I had some of my best ever Indian dishes from here. The staff has been very welcoming and friendly from day one. As a welcome addition, they have a rather good wine-list, too. As far as local Indian restaurants... More
