Apart from a mix up with a rice order instead of keema naans which may have been my fault. I was totally disappointed with the lamb jalfrezi which was like eating a Sunday minted lamb joint with chilli's. Can anyone recommend a good takeaway in Norwich. My wife also agrees with this comment.. We did not eat all the jalfrezi.

The bad points: the quality of the chicken can sometimes be a bit variable, and they had a terrible food hygiene review a year or so ago. The good points: everything else! The food is the best tasting Indian takeaway we've found in Norwich (and we've tried pretty much everywhere else), so we keep coming back. Always quick delivery. And... More

I have been using the Shah Zahan for over 5 years. The quality of the food remains high and it has the advantage of being across the road from the Duke of Wellington, and excellent real ale pub where you can go for a pint whilst waiting for your food to be cooked, or alternatively you can have your meal...

Lovely restaurant that my wife and I have been too a number of times but the lady who mans the reception is the rudest individual I have met in the food industry. She was sharp, condescending, judgemental and down right rude. New staff needed.

We used to order from here all the time. We've used shah zahan for the past 5 or 6 years as our go to Indian takeaway. We hadn't had one in a while and ordered up our usual. My girlfriend and I both got ill. Coincidence you say? That's what we thought so the next week we ordered again and... More

I've now had several takeaways from here, and must say I have been more than happy with what I've had. Probably one of the best Indian takeaways in the city.

If you are looking for authentic British Indian cooking with bags of flavour look no further. Like most people I have tried various Indian restaurants and take-aways in and around Norwich but so far none come even close to usurping the Shah Zahan. Having over the last 15 years eaten my way through the menu, I can say that I... More
