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.

I had the opportunity to have some food at Shensha with a group of friends recently. It was the first time I had been there in some time. Despite the large number at the table, the staff looked after our every need and made sure...that everyone had what they needed. The menu is quite broad but there were enough options to satisfy most appetites and spice levels. I went for one of the specials and was not disappointed by the results. The portions are very good, resulting in me feeling really rather full by the end of the meal. In terms of drinks this is a BYO (Bring your own) alcoholic drinks restaurant and they do sell soft drinks if needed. The staff were attentive and kept themselves busy even though the restaurant was only half full. (We went on a weekday). I would happily go there again when the next opportunity arises. As a special note, parking is available at the restaurant but behind it. However, you MUST register the vehicle registration at the reception desk. The staff are really helpful regarding questions about this. Overall a great experience and the food was excellent for the price point.More

I craved the Prawn on Puri from our last visit. No resemblance to previous I thought tasteless Marianne thought OK. Shensha Special Biriayani presented compressed like something out of a foil container tasteless. Mariannes's tandoori mixed grill apparently OK but I tried some of the...meat it tasted tough as old boots. Waiter not interested in comments about Biryani thought I wanted it hotter had to explain twice that I just wanted it to have some taste. On the whole nice people shame as closest curry house to us but will not return.More

We are regulars here, it never disappoints. We have worked our way through the menu over the years and the food seems to improve all the time. Service is just what you need, not intrusive take your own drinks, and to cap it all, we...can walk there. Great value night out for a celebration or just a chatMore

Ordered from this restaurant due to the good reviews. It really wasn't all that at all. Food was edible but not tasty. Service is poor when collecting. Wouldn't come back.

I ordered a take away last night from here. Have been using this restaurant for years. However was so disappointed and not up to its usual standards. The buttered chicken was dry and crusty and the sauce appeared curdled with a layer of orange fat...floating in top. The onion bhaji were stale and tasted reheated. I had family over and had to get pizza out instead. They appear th have gone down hill and our meal for 4 looked like reheats and left overs. I emailed them to let them know of my disappointment but not a word back to me had my money for very poor food. Give it a missMore

We recently moved to Aylesbury and this was the first Indian restaurant we tried and if the taste and quality of food stays the same as our last 2 visits then it will be the last one we try. One of my favourite dishes is...brinjal bhaji and I tried it for the first time last night. I can honestly say it was the best one I have ever eaten.More

The food is described as Indian/Pakistani cuisine. I found it to be quite bland and honestly, I should have just cooked myself. It’s pricey and is not true to how described in the menu . Chicken biryani had really hard chicken and 0 flavour to...it. It was over cooked. The rice in the biryani was also bland. The “shame” kebab aka shami kebab was bland with no flavour. Lastly, the bhuna gosht cooked in “spices” was actually quite sweet tasting. If you are new to area and are looking for authentic Indian or Pakistani cuisine, do not order from here, keep your money. If you are looking to order just to get a taste of a basic meal (that you can make using curry sauce from Morrisons) and want to pay a high price for it, then this is the place for you.More

Haven’t eaten here for years. Decided on Friday night takeaway and so glad we did. This is so so tasty. Fresh. Flavoursome. Colourful. Ordering and delivery was speedy and easy. Can’t wait to try more on the menu

We like this place. A good choice of dishes all well prepared and service is excellent. We try something different every time we go and it is always very good. The pashwari nan breads are full of coconut like I have never seen before. Taking...your own drinks along keeps it affordable for anyoneMore

Regular customer (my boyfriend and I) decided to treat whole family to an Indian takeaway. For about £70 we got a pickup takeaway for 6 adults and 3 small children. As usual the food was absolutely delicious and was loved by everyone. Highlights: peshwari naaan,...chicken chaat, chicken balti. Top notch food!More

Called in today, tempted partly by the Eat Out To Help Out initiative - very useful in an economic Depression! My starter was onion bhaji. These were to die for: wonderfully golden crispy exteriors full of tender onion. For main course, I opted for special...fried rice with lamb vindaloo and a cheese naan bread. The naan bread was literally oozing with cheese! The fried rice was the best I’ve tasted with a great texture, while the curry was flavoursome with very tasty and tender meat. I’ll be back!More

Ordered a collection last night as had some friends round in the garden (socially distanced of course). Once again was great food. I've eaten in the restaurant many times but this was the first time getting a take away and they didn't disappoint. There were...5 of us so quite a big order and everything was perfect. My favourite Indian in town and would definitely recommend.More
