Always great service and always busy, booking not always essential, may have a spare table. Large groups would need to book! This is my favourite place to have a curry, the chicken balti sag is heaven!

We go to the shaan often to eat in and take away. By fare the best restaurant in the area. Brilliant staff and the decor makes you feel like your on holiday in another country which is definitely a great way to relax after a long week at work.

Found on line and it looked amazing couldn't fault the food or service just slightly felt like a conveyor belt experience at times saying that it was a Saturday night Would definitely come again when visiting Oxfordshire

Booked a table as we were staying in the area. Went with our son. We all had something different but only my son enjoyed his meal. My husband let the majority of his and i ate only half. The chicken tikka was very chewy which i have never come across before. There was a very large party of young men... More

In my opinion, the best Indian in Witney. From service, to atmosphere, to more importantly the food. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would.

I dined alone here whilst on business. I arrived and was greeted by a smiling and helpful member of staff, I was shown to a table in the restaurant and unuasually, as I was alone, I was not stuffed in the corner near the kitchen as usually happens. The service was very swift and efficient and I ordered my meal... More

A very popular restaurant with a good atmosphere serving good curries. The staff are friendly and their service is first class. Several curry houses in Witney so competition is stiff but The Shaan takes some beating. Well worth a visit.

The gang here always serve good food, and with a good attitude too! Our group was large and friendly, and we were giving speeches too so a bit noisy! But they accommodated us with great grace and good humour, and without disturbing other patrons (Shaan is one of the largest restaurants in Witney). I would recommend Shaan for its good... More
