The food here is wonderful and we recommend it highly. Very fresh. The waiter was attentive and friendly and the food was brought to our table very quickly.
A must for lovers of Indian food.

lovely Indian with very tasty food. doesn't look fancy from the outside as it's above shops but don't let that put you off. food is very tasty, hot and service was good.
we shared the popadoms that comes with chutney onions and sauce then chicken pakora ( it doesn't come with a dipping sauce like in scotland). 4 pieces enough to share.
we had chicken tikka masala which comes with rice and a chicken dopiasi. so tasty and creamy. worth a visit when in bowness

It was the second time we had visited Shahib's, having been before a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Firstly, the food is very nice indeed. I was the only meat eater amongst three vegetarians and there was plenty of choice available for them. This is never usually the case but they all remarked upon how good the food was. My meat dish was also fantastic. I'd asked if the kitchen could make it hotter than advertised which wasn't a problem. When it arrived it was perefect, the waiter also came along to make sure it was the right head and seemed genuinely pleased when I told him it was. A very nice touch.

We also met Jackk, the owner. Who was also incredibly friendly. We had a great chat with him and told him the last time we'd visited was after our wedding. He then returned later on with boxes of choclates for us and our friends we were there with. What great service!

On top of all this the restaurant is very nicely decorated, with a great abience. The music was traditionally Indian and was at the right level to add to the overall exoerience. We will definitely call again next time we are in the area and would highly reccomend that everyone gives it a go too.

Three of us arrived at 10.35pm. The sign clearly indicated a closing time of 11.15 with last orders 20 minutes before closing. The kitchen is closed said the waiter and when we pointed out the sign he gave an indifferent shrug. We went around the corner to Mela and had a super meal. We won't bother going back to shahibs.

We booked as a group of 24 and they catered from a set menu of very tasty mixed food with excellent service and attention for such a large party.
Very impressed.
