Highly recommended friendly place. High quality Indian food highly recommended. Have a drink while you wait for your take away or ask for a fast turn around.

I had the best lamb balti at the Shamrat last night preceded by a lovely King Prawn Puree. Great service, food was perfect, lovely setting. The restaurant was very busy too which was great to see. Many thanks to all the staff.

A colleague and I popped in, unannounced after a last minute meeting - we were sat very quickly and looked after by some nice staff. Food ordered was well presented, hot, fresh and tasty - really enjoyed it. If I ever find myself in Maidstone again, I'll be back. Give it a go. M

Took a customer for an evening meal. Service was friendly and very food. We felt welcome. Food was nice. No issues whatsoever. Decent fare. Well worth a trip.

Go figure this!... Book a table online for 15 people at 19:30, business evening celebratory meal, then receive a telephone call later stating they want £75 upfront and that we need to eat and get out the restaurant by 21:00 for the next seating! Not the best way to run a business and a good way of losing customers, obviously... More

Ordered for delivery here since moving to Maidstone at the beginning of the year. Quality has slowly gone down here so orders have been less frequent. Today would have been our first order in a month or so. As usually we call them up but on this occasion we were spoken to very rudely and our usual order could not... More

First time ordering from Shamrat after hearing lots of positive things about the food. I have tried many Indian takeaways over the years and this is one of the most disappointing I have had. I had the Korma and had requested for it to be extra sweet but there wasn't the slightest hint of sweetness to it and it had... More

We dont really go to any other Indian restaurants in the area as this one is so good. Always very good service and lovely food. Have never had a bad meal here.

I visited the Shamrat with my two daughters and husband tonight and had a fantastic meal. The waiters were very attentive and the service was very good. My husband and I ordered the Chicken korai and it was delicious. The atmosphere was buzzing as it was a full house. The chocolates at the end of the meal are a nice... More
