    A brilliant takeaway with a huge variety of different options to most other places.placed by James on the 28th August 2016
  • Great food! Delivery could be faster!

    The food was great! Although the tikka masala was slightly sweeter and more coconuty than expected. It also wasn't as creamy and tomato-ey as I would expect from a tikka masala. Lamb bhuna was great in flavour, mild and aromatic. The murghi cham Cham was great, nice and medium hot, and very tomato-ey. Overall great food! They did deliver within the stipulated time given, but it could have been faster, especially since it was early in the evening.placed by Isabel on the 6th June 2016
  • Great curry

    Prompt delivery and tasty curry. Definitely the best this side of York.placed by Daniel on the 6th May 2016
  • 15 minutes late

    The meal itself was great, it's just the extra wait (for collection) that wasn't what I expected. Maybe take that into account at busy time (this was Saturday evening).placed by Patrick on the 3rd April 2016
  • Delicious!

    Ordered online then went to collect. I was a bit early but they were ready on time. Very friendly man served me and the food was delicious! I must recommend collection against delivery, as delivery can be very slow and food cold.placed by Simon on the 3rd April 2016
  • Stone Cold and very late

    Took over 1 hour to deliver from less than a mile away. Arrived stone cold. This is unusual for the Shahi. Usually prompt service and very tasty. This bad experience has not put me off ordering from them in the future though.placed by Simon on the 18th February 2016
  • Great food but luke warm on delivery

    Best tasting curry I've had from a takeaway but sadly the delivery was late and the food only luke warm. Mitigation was that it was Valentine's Day so they will have been extremely busy.placed by Richard on the 15th February 2016
  • I will certainly use you again!

    Prompt and friendly service and the food was delicious!placed by Nicola on the 11th November 2015
  • Brilliant

    Unfortunately our rice was not delivered but Shahi made every effort to sort it out and were extremely apologetic. The rice was re-delivered extremely quickly. The food tasted great as always, superb service.placed by Andrew on the 7th November 2015

  • Super tasty tandoori

    The Shahi produce THE best tandoori dishes with lots of subtle spicing, they always deliver on time & there's often a free pickles & popadoms included. Highly recommended for a great curry delivered to your door.placed by Frannie on the 17th October 2015

    I would challenge any Indian in York to serve up a better Lamb Dhansak. Really enjoyable.placed by Dave on the 27th September 2015

    great food yet again, been using this place for years.placed by Steve on the 14th August 2015
  • Tastiest Tandoori Ever

    People from Yorkshire, always associate excellent curries with Bradford. Here in York we have a tandoori treasure to rival even Bradfords reputation! When Shahi say they specialise in tandoori they are not messing about...they really do! Their king prawn tandoori is a divine taste sensation with giant split prawns (the tails are left on so watch for that) chargrilled in a delicious tomato based medium curry sauce. The tandoori chicken is tender, rich and equally superb. Remember to ask for it to be taken off the bone, unless you like it that way. Sundries, like rice, naan etc are all equally good and you often get an excellent selection of pickles, popadoms and salad completely free of charge! If you order online they often deliver ahead of time and ordering in their shop on Nunnery Lane is easy, friendly, well maintained and pleasant. Cannot recommend these lovely tandoori chefs highly enough. For us it's become a regular Friday tandoori treat!placed by Frannie on the 11th July 2015

  • Excellent curry!

    2 starters and 2 main courses, and poppadoms and rice only came to £23. The starters were good, sheek kebab and king prawn puri, then the main courses were absolutely delicious: ayr kharahi and chicken dhansak. I will definitely be ordering from here again, soon!placed by Claire on the 2nd February 2015

  • Good food

    The Shahi is our favorite take away restaurant. The food was very good and has excellent flavours. Being a Saturday night the order was delivered a little later than curries online suggested which meant that the food was not as hot as normal.placed by Mike on the 16th September 2012

  • Always a winner!

    Back in York after 4 months Down Under, my husband and I had cravings for our old friend, curry. Soooo glad we ordered from Shahi. The meal did not disappoint. It was so tasty tasty tasty - the only downside is that the food is far too tempting!! (We always have intentions of refrigerating some for the next day - but our stomachs get the better of us!). We picked up the meal, and the staff were so friendly. We always end up leaving the store smiling.My husband commented that it's the best curry he's had in a looooooong time (he's a curry expert, and the ones in Australia and at other York restaurants just don't compare). Am sure Shahi will become a weekly (finances permitting) custom from now on!!!placed by Marde on the 11th May 2012
  • Order was not complete and so salty

    Had Shahi for years always a high standard but last nights was so dissapointing. Oder was missing one main course and both were far to salty and most was thrown away. Hope this was just a one off.placed by stuart on the 6th May 2012
  • Extremely Disappointed

    we ordered from this company as we read reviews that made it out to be one of the best. however we could not have been more disappointed. we were told it would take 45 minutes for delivery but in actual fact took 1 hour and 30 minutes. the delivery man was very apologetic but apparently according to him it is very common as the kitchen cannot cope with the amount of service required from them. not only was the food this late it was very cold and no a good value for the money at all. i would not reccommend this takeaway to anyone.placed by Emma on the 28th April 2012
  • Tasty, Fresh and Fast

  • So much food for the money!

    I love that Shahi gives free popadoms with every meal. They initially forgot my garlic naan bread, but sent it over once I called with some additional sauces and were very apologetic. The food was delicious!placed by Erica on the 25th December 2011
  • Changed price on delivery!!

    Although the food was great, I'm a bit miffed of the fact I ordered the food for £13.95, even got the email to prove it but the delivery driver charged us £14.99! I know it's only just over a pound but it's cheeky to change the price after you have ordered it. My boyfriend answered the doorplaced by Hollie on the 17th December 2011
  • Usually excellent but not this time

    Normally the service here is excellent but on this occasion I was let down a bit. However it was a friday night. The order took nearly two hours to arrive and the food was cold. I will order here again but one more of these and I'll go somewhere else.placed by Tom on the 9th November 2011
