This isn't the cheapest Indian meal you'll ever purchase but it will be one of the most delicious as these guys really cook up a real treat. From the most delicious lumps of chicken sunk into a creamy coconut soup to the subtly spicy Masala you will defiantly get authentic Indian cuisine. Try some of their range of Naans, I... More

Shanaz offers a wide variety of Indian food. The facade of the restaurant. Is not very inviting but once you descend into the cellar there is a clean modern interior. You can select level of spicyness of your food, medium spicy already required some extingishing. Service is very friendly with a high level of care. Service is relatively fast.

New menu, nice tikka masala. Not the cheapest for an Indian takeaway but consistently good. Very friendly staff.

This small, quiet Indian restaurant on Lewes High St was a delight to visit. The menu was extensive including many unusual dishes not normally seen in an Indian restaurant. The very friendly waiter explained all the dishes to us including how "spicy hot" they were. The beers, wine & all the home-cooked dishes were all excellent value & we were... More

So much flavour in the smallest and most delicate of dishes., a continual delight. The service impeccable. If it were possible to give more than 5 out of 5, I would do it. Look forward to going back there.
