This is our go-to Indian restaurant. We love Shaan! The owner and the staff are always so friendly, and the food is always really good. Get the samosa chaat! We will continue to come here as long as we are in the area.

Was thrilled to find this little gem in Hyde Park. Lots of different options which change periodically. My husband and I went TWICE in one week after discovering it - now I'm taking friends and family. Service is always very friendly. See you again soon.....

Went to lunch buffet today . Overall pretty disappointed with the buffet and the waitress seemed gruff. Price was reasonable for a reason. If you enjoy Indian food, save your money and skip it.

Stopped in for lunch buffet, very good on all levels (price, food, and service). I'm not an Indian food expert so I just tried a little bit of several of the options and wasn't disappointed with any of it.

Best Indian in Cincinnati, always have your order ready before you even sit down. Chicken vindaloo is the best sound

I've eaten at this place several times. The food is delicious and the service fast and friendly. Portion sizes are quite large (one meal and order of Naan is enough to feed me twice) and reasonably priced. I've eaten in and ordered carry out, and it's consistent either way. They offer a lunch buffet from 11-2 but I can't speak... More

A friend told me Shaan was better than Ambar. I went for lunch so it was a buffet. Since Ambar does not have a buffet a true comparison was not possible. But, the buffet was outstanding. Wonderful tastes. My only complaint - the tandoori chicken was dry. I will certainly be back for dinner.

Every time I have eaten here, the food has been good, and this time was no exception. But the ladies working were so rude. I know it was at the end of the lunch buffet, but it was still unacceptable for the staff to be curt. They quickly informed us that the buffet closed in 30 minutes when we arrived... More

My fiancee and I recently moved to the Cincinnati area from Lexington, where we had tried our fair share of Indian restaurants. We both agreed that Shaan Indian Cuisine was one of the best we had either had the pleasure to try. We were seated by the polite hostess right away upon arriving at Shaan, and she brought us our...
