Is still a very good curry but the service has gradually gone down hill for a couple of years still always busy but now very rushed and feels like your being timed hope it gets back to its peak 5 years ago

Went last night arrived at 7.30 food served at 9.45. When it did arrive it was cold. The place was packed and there was nowhere near enough staff to serve the customers that were there.The food was the worst Indian food I have ever had.

This place is always busy and noisy so if you're after a quiet, romantic meal choose a different destination. I've been here and the old one in Strood many times and always enjoyed the food. Service is reasonably quick considering the volume of food coming out of the kitchen. Food itself is good but a little expensive.

The food here is amazing, so much better than all the other local curry houses. The choice of curries on offer are excellent and they are all wonderful- if you want something that isn't on the menu they do their best to accommodate this too. Even the onion bhajis are full of spices and flavours that you don't get elsewhere.... More

After arriving rather late to our accommodation in Rochester we were advised that our best chance of a meal would be Shozna. Indeed it was and we had a very nice meal here. The food was tasty and good quality and the service and friendliness of staff was also very good.

Went as a party of 6. Were welcomed at the door. Table was a bit small and cramped once all the food arrived. Food was delicious. Bit difficult to get waiters' attention for further drinks, but all staff pleasant. Have been a couple of times before over the years. Would go again, but it is not my favourite indian restaurant....

Not eaten in, only had a takeaway but the standard is always of the highest quality! I have the mango curry which is simply out of this world and not one I've seen elsewhere, I've had other curries from here that have been good but I always wish I stick to what I know I look forward to eating here...

Didn't go much by my takeaway last night, bland and really lacking in flavour. A real shame as I had heard good things about this restaurant. Maybe it's a different story when you eat in although it may be a while before I visit again.
