I waited 35 mins for one course which was supposedly the signature meal. Lamb in chilli gravy that didn't reflect the menu description at all and a naan that was more like a crisp. Have I had better? Yes. Will I be back? Certainly not.

I spend one week per month in Leeds and never visit without stopping at Shabab's for some dinner one evening each time! I bring corporate guests and other company visitors quite frequently also. The food is fantastic and the service is second to none.

Description
Since the 1970s Shabab restaurants have been fighting against the red-flocked flock of Indian restaurants spreading across the UK in all their tasteless glory. By bringing authenticity and style to Asian cuisine, the Shabab brand has shown that eating Indian isn't just about grabbing a bite with beer. At Shabab we believe in serving freshly prepared great tasting food to our diners in a friendly environment. Our knowledgeable staff is keen to recommend our house specialities or prepare your favourites from our a-la- carte menu to suit your taste.
