It’s been over two years since our last visit here and great to see it open and doing well. Food and ambiance is always good here. Reasonable prices and very enjoyable.

Visited this restaurant with my husband following a theatre trip. We were given a warm welcome and shown to our table straight away. Great selection of food and drinks on offer. We had prawn puree starter which was very good and lamb madras and rogan...josh with special fried rice for our mains. The lamb was lean and tender and both dishes were really tasty. Will definitely be going back.More

Food cooked to perfection a real flavour explosion a great blend of spices, we had two visits to this lovely friendly restaurant. On our first visit we went with the Lamb Saag and Lamb Biryani, the meat was perfectly tender both dishes were fantastic. We...have eaten Indian food for more than 40 years in over 40 countries the food we had in the Shad was right up in our top 5 of all time, we were so impressed we returned for dinner the following evening and were recommended to try the manager’s recommendations which we did, once again both dishes were amazing, I can’t remember my dishes names as they were ordered for us but one was Lamb curry with mango the other was the house Bhuna ……wow ! what a delight. Friendly engaging staff,nice decor and ambience and fantastic food. 10/10 service. We will return when next in London.More

We were staying at the Hilton hotel for a birthday celebration, which is opposite the restaurant. We was very impressed with the price, portion sizes, time for food to be prepared but more importantly with the quality of the food. All our dishes were made...to perfection and packed with flavour. We also received 15% discount for collection and the service was exceptional. Would recommend to anyone who would like to enjoy such great food in the heart of central London.More

I returned to this restaurant for the second time after a period of 7 years as I had pleasant memories, both of the food and customer service from my first visit. Sadly it was not the case. None of us enjoyed our meal and the...service was poor not only from the waiter but also the owner. We felt uncomfortable.More

Went here last Friday to celebrate our friends birthday . The service was absolutely first class from every person and the food was plentiful and very good. Gave us some complimentary Sambuca and ciroc after too which was decent . The restaurant is situated next...to the shard and close to tower bridge and we will definitely be back as had a great timeMore

In all honestly, Shad wasn’t our first choice. We tried quite a few restaurants for a Saturday evening meal. Luckily for us, the others weren’t free and Shad squeezed us in. The service was super, the food was delicious (Sag Paneer & Nutty rice were...highlights) and the atmosphere was nice and buzzy too. We were really impressed & would definitely return!More

Probably the best Indian food I’ve ever had. We were staying nearby in the Dixon Hotel & found this place when wandering in the area. Called to book & the friendly staff took care of us throughout our visit. The food was something else! We...had the grilled prawns & lamb chop starters. Both delicious just a bit mean portion size for £6.95. The mains were plentiful & very reasonably priced tho. Butter chicken, chicken shaslick & lamb shank were absolutely superb. Good quality juicy meat & sauces served with a decent peshwari naan & pilau rice made this an excellent meal. We had wine & beers & the bill came in at just under £40 each which included 12.5% service charge. Would certainly return & highly recommend.More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
