Best place for a curry in Banbury. Great service and food and made to feel really welcome. Heading back in a few weeks for sure.

As ever, a very warm welcome and freshly cooked curry with large portions, more than we could eat. Very good value, would strongly recommend.

Been a customer of the Sheesh Mahal for a couple of years. Never had a bad meal from them either as take away or eat in. Staff super courteous and friendly and clearly passionate about running a great restaurant.

A group of five of us met here for a curry on Saturday and enjoyed it. The food was tasty and good value. I would happily go again.

We visited this restaurant this week and were alarmed at how standards have slipped. Food was delivered to the table lukewarm with naan breads that were completely cold and all had to be sent back to be re-heated. Proprietor seemed less than concerned, almost blasé. Expensive and not value for money in any sense- £11 for 12 poppadoms??

VERY nice environment - recommend the King Prawn dishes which are actually crevettes, langoustine, just great big prawns or something WAY bigger than our KP expectation in the UK. Nice restaurant and the keema nan were good too

I ordered a take away for delivery this evening. It was the first time I have ordered from the Sheesh Mahal and I must say, I was very happy with their service. It was very easy to order by telephone and arrived very promptly. The food was absolutely delicious. I will definitely order from them again.
