Recently updated the decor since my last post here but the kitchen and food tastes still delish. Service is fast and friendly and prices are still cheap. It's dry so be prepared but if it's the original cooked food your after you'll be very pleased

The Sheesh Mahal is okay appearance wise, staff are friendly enough. My starter, poppadoms, sundries etc were all nice. Ordered a chicken balti, the sauce etc was tasty but the chicken was awful. Definitely not breast, it was slimy, pretty disgusting if I'm honest and I didn't even eat half of it. But everything else was spot on taste wise... More

Has a business meeting (group of 15.) It was first time at the sheesh mahal, surprised I haven't visited before. We had the mix grill starter which I would recommend to all. The mains were great. Shame we didn't have desserts we were too full up, they looked amazing though. Service was nice and friendly and best of all cheap... More

Absolutely disgusting food and full of noisy taxi drivers. The front door wouldn't close and the place was cold. Service was good but the food was bland. The meat was disgusting and was beef sold as lamb. It had a very dry taste similar to chicken breast compared to chicken leg. I didn't want to complain. I've been going here... More

My friend and I called in for an impromptu meal. We had a delicious Rogan Josh and Dansak only for my friend to slip on the floor as a pile of cleaning products had been brought in and stacked in front of the staircase to the loo. The staff showed absolutely no concern, not even asking if my friend was... More

After loads of visits over the years to Sheesh Mahal an honest review is deemed fitting. Visited late saturday early sunday with four fellow curry fans. In our party were 3 ladies and two men, our ladies had respectful fussing from the waiters and when tables were moved to seat us, it was with no awkward comments or hesitation. The... More
