We went to this place as I had heard some great things and we were very pleased. First the amount of food available is great. There is a range for all tastes including vegetarian food, vegan food, meat dishes and lovely desserts. I could easily be a vegetarian with the food available here. We were spoilt for choice. There was... More

We phoned the restaurant after 7pm to order a large takeaway meal. The very helpful guy from the restaurant told us that the restuarant closed at 8pm. He was keen to ensure that we were able to get our meal before the restaurant closed. I found this to be very helpful. The guy told us that one of the dishes... More

If Primark did food they would hire the people that run this place as employees. 2 times I've rang this place at least an hour before closing. First incident they told me that they either couldn't do it because they were closing........... You close at 8, not 7 and the second incident they said they would have to cook one... More

Shahenshah_1, Manager at Shahenshah, responded to this review

Thank you for your review, however unfortunately I have to disagree with you especially in relation to the two "incidents". Firstly, I do not remember a time in recent memory where we have closed one hour before the stated closing time. Please refer to our closing times on Facebook. Secondly, we have a vast menu and sometimes, especially towards closing... More

This place is amazing, freshly cooked traditional food at affordable prices. I go here for an early lunch when I need a spice hit. Ive used these guys to cater for hungry adults at children's parties and everyone comments how good the samosas and fish pakoras are. I can't go more than a week without one of their mango lassi...

The quality of the foos was outstanding (as always), the service was superb (as always) and the value was incredible (as always), We chose from the chilled, fresh curries on display in the cabinet plus some freshly made chapatis and a few sides (samosa, pakora etc). Shahenshah really is an excellent place to get Indian food in Derby. (the best,... More

Best food in Derby for lunch, and really reasonably priced. I've been eating here for years, and the quality and service have always been impeccable.

We travel from Nottingham to this restaurant as we have not found anything that comes close in Nottingham. We have tried various dishes at this place and are consistently pleased every time we visit. Dishes such as the punjabi Kadhi with the pakora or maki roti and sag which are staple dishes in India however hard to come by in... More

We have visited this excellent, small, family run restaurant hundreds of times over very many years. Other than being very satisfied long-term customers of Shahenshah, we have no link with the restaurant at all... nor are we using this review to try to point potential customers to other Indian restaurants in Derby! Quite how Shahenshah isn't rated as the top... More

Our friends always rave about this place and i am at a loss to understand why. We ordered a vegetable korma and a chicken tikka korma. They were out of chicken tikka, fair enough, that happens but then the food was offered cold, to heat at home. When we got it home we discovered that both types of korma bore... More
