We've been ordering takeaway's from here for over the past year and they've never disappointed. Occasionally we've decided to try somewhere else and usually regret it... Unlike other takeaways they never seem to have a night where you wonder whether it's the full time chef's night off. I'm surprised at a lot of the reviews because in our experience it's... More

Honestly cannot believe all of the bad reviews, we come all the way from pembury to use this specific indian and have never had a bad meal. The food has great flavour, good porition sizes and great prices to match. The staff have always been really friendly too!

order took 1hr 30mins. They cocked order up and delivered to wrong address. When finally delivered it was cold, very very greasy and still missing items! The rude staff try to blame just-eat and absolve themselves of any responsibility. Very poor and will not be using them again

Firstly, the picture is not of the shahen balti in tunbridge wells, it's not even spelt the same way. Secondly, the food is very good, living locally I've ordered from there many times and have not had cause to complain. The staff are friendly and helpful and the menu has a large choice if dishes, what more do you want.

Had to write a review as my experience was very different to the other reviews. I've been searching for a great curry place in tunbridge wells and have really struggled. My last two takeaways from here have been as good, if not slightly better than any of the others. Prices good as well.
