The ritual is to twice a week visit the Curry Buffet on a Tuesday evening. Perhaps I am getting too used to the food or the food is deteriorating. Or a combination of both. This last week I found the Veg starters to be cold and dry. Some of the mains were cool too and needed more temperature heat. One of the dishes was claimed to be mutton curry but turned out to be mutton bones curry. Hence a lot of waste on a lot of plates. Booking a table also seems to be an issue here. There get it wrong most of the times. If you book for 6 people for a certain time, then when you get there the table is for 4 for an hour earlier then you reserved the table for. If incorrect booking happen once it cane be tolerated, if it happens regular, it means that they need to have someone educated to answer their phone. The table service is also slower then usual.

So Tuesday and Saturday evenings are a curry buffet - this is great value with a wide range of dishes on selection . Other times the menu is brilliant with great selections - don't miss this - you need to book for the buffet

The curry I got from Shahi Khana was pretty salty and not what I expected. I wouldn't necessarily order food from them again. The naan was also average. My Paneer Palak was OK but the Chicken dish I ordered wasn't something I could bring myself to eat as the meat was tough and the dish was far too salty and spicy. Perhaps I ordered poorly.

Wow! 5* and more! Deliberately went when no buffet buzzed with eager patrons, and feasted rather on the menu. Somehow a shiraz worked perfectly too! From the moment the Papadom arrived with delectable dips I knew this was going to be special. It certainly was. Their "Fish Curry" was a delicate balance of palatable "hot" with just the right collection of "fish" to make me want to go back...soon. "Bombay potato" needs to be tasted to be believed - you produced the best out of this vegetarian curry dish. I kept the "Chicken Korma" in the wings, so to speak - chunks of chicken breast waiting to be gobbled and savored in that creamy secret Mumbai sea of subtle curry had to cleanse the palate... But I want more! You guys fed and allowed my friend and I to truly feast on a perfect curry evening. Bravo! G

Good range of meat and vegetarian curries with decent sized portions. The naan bread is particularly good and prompt service
