Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The popadom chutneys were very poor, didn’t taste anything like they are meant to. Butter chicken was like Chinese chicken curry only blander. The lamb special was ok, jalfrezi just ok. Quite disappointing overall. We have tried all the Indians locally and this was the...biggest letdown so far. Hopefully not always this poor and we have picked a bad dayMore

We visited last night for the Sunday buffet. It was all really tasty. Good choice and vegetarian options too. Our little girl enjoyed herself too and wants to go again tonight! Thank you Shantii

Ordered Korma. Tasted nothing like one and rice was bland no taste at all. Would not recommend . There are better Indian restaurants nearby.

I love this restaurant. The staff are very welcoming and polite. The food is so tasty, I'm a returning customer and haven't had bad meal or experience yet. Thanks everyone at Shantii.

Absolutely delicious, we were a big table (15) and the service was excellent. My son isn't great with spicy food and he loved the lamb tikka starter and butter lamb main.

Unfortunately, our overall experience at Shanti left a lot to be desired. Service was overbearing and the behaviour of the owner could only be described as obsequious. I think his name is Ali. The food was extremely average and lukewarm. The main constituents of the...meal were tough and overcooked. Being typically English, we didn’t complain, however, when we received our bill we were charged for several items that we hadn’t had, including some expensive alcoholic drinks. Rather than apologising and rectifying the bill the owner actually had the audacity to suggest that the bill was correct. After an extremely embarrassing and somewhat heated discussion that could be heard by other diners they agreed to the disgraceful overcharge and corrected the bill. It goes without saying that we won’t be returning !!More

Came here to get a takeaway. Lamb Jafrelzi, poppadom with dips, naan and pilau rice. Paid before I went to get something as there was a 20 minute wait. When I returned to get the food and left, the waiter came rushing out calling my...name and was asking whether I paid. Immediately he remembered but I made sure that the team was aware that I did pay. I had to come back as the poppadom was crushed and he said sometimes it is the customer that crushes the popadoms when transporting in the car. I said that the customer is always right and that they should have better packaging. I said the lamb jalfrezi and pilau rice were cold. And he said that is the hottest they can heat it! Rather than cook it LOL. Anyway he never apologised for making a mistake about me paying him cash earlier. And tried to accused customers of breaking popadoms. I am not here to try and damage the reputation as I can see other review recently said the food was awful. It is to make sure others are aware and the standards tonight have dropped. 031223 1900hrs.More

Husband and I have been a couple of times to this restaurant and it is great 👍 it was Friday evening and we hadn’t booked but they managed to fit us in although it was quite busy. Food was hot and very tasty, we couldn’t...finish it all and look forward to coming again soon. Staff were helpful and attentive even though place was busy. Reasonable prices and great food, will return soon.More

Had a takeaway tonight. Ordered a chicken korma, pilau rice and fries. The curry was like water and had no taste. The chicken had no taste to it. In fact everything was tasteless. What a waste of £22. We're never going back.

This is the second time now I've got a takeaway and the chicken was inedible in both the dishes ordered. It was so chewy. It seems as it has been heated up. Ruined the meal as couldn't be eaten. This is a shame as when...we go in the meals are lovely. They must know if they served this low standard in the restaurant people would send the food back, very disappointing. We should have taken it back!!More

We had a wonderful experience tonight. The service was some of the best service we have ever received in a restaurant. Really friendly, welcoming staff. Made the children feel totally welcome. The server persuaded me to try something different and I was so grateful that...he did. The food was delicious, great portions too. Really lovely restaurant feel and had a good atmosphere even though it was mid week.More
