It was worth the wait for the food but the time taken was beyond what would be expected from a well run restaurant. In the middle of a heatwave the air conditioning was a real bonus and the menu choice was varied and covered all...More

We have been many many times.... Always good food and portions. Food this time was a little bland I had a chicken madras and I've had better there before.

A little gem in the middle of Whitney. It was very busy and we were lucky to get a table. I advise you to book at busy times. The food was excellent, the service reasonable and the prices normal to high. Very noisy but that...More

Foods alright but it's aires on the side of bland which in itself is an achievement for Indian food. It's worth walking five more minutes for better fair.

I found the owner very welcoming and it was a nicely laid out restaurant. Food came quite quickly and madras was nice. No issues at all.

A clean restaurant with questionable service. King Prawn Tandoori had 3 prawns and was £13.50... Prawns overcooked and chewy. Unacceptable and no discount offered after complaining for the manager twice. Frustratingly the staff seemed amused by the issue and offered me and my friend "drinks...More

I eat out a lot . . . almost enough to be a real restaurant critic ! In all my travels in the Cotswolds and beyond The Shaan is not just my favourite Indian, it's my favourite restaurant full stop. Genuine, consistent, fine, truly fresh...More

The Shaan generally has nice food, but like other good indian restaurants, they let their customers down by taking too many take-away orders & can't properly service their customers. The meal we had was poor, but the waiter was much worse. I really try not...More

Dear Rotli, We're very sorry to hear this, we didn't meet your standard, at same time we did our best to make you happy, you have booked for 16 peoples, 4 starters, 6 main dish and 10 naan breads, i have personally served you , every demand you made, i have done for you, even you asked me to give you chilli powder and gram Mossala powder on the table, which i did. Yes i admit you have ordered extra Tandoor tikka after 15 minutes of your first starter, which i explain to you it will take about 10-15 minutes to cook which you didn't like it. There is lot of things you wrote here, which is unfair, on the top you're arguing for discount because of large group, I personally give £20 off just to please our customer.
