A decent curry house (and I see enough to know the good ones from the others). Good value. Good range of 'the usual' Indian food plus some specialities. Service a little sporadic - they were rather slow to take an order, and bring drinks, but then a little over-attentive when the food was there - you only need to ask... More

Family visiting and wanted to have an "Indian", so chose Shenai as this has been on my to-do list for some time now. Welcoming staff on arrival, a familiar face in the line-up as well which bode well. Good service, even if a bit of delay between ordering and first course, they seemed to be concentrating on the take-aways, but... More

Been loads of times over the years and the quality has stayed consistent.- BUT - last visit I was rather disapointed that for 3 of us, we paid £62.60 for a rather large amount of potato!

Been using this restaurant for a good numbers of years. Unfortunately the service has slipped since our last visit. Can't help but think that some waiter training may help. Leaning across customers instead of walking around the table, clearing tables whilst people at the table are still eating and splitting a £99.75 bill 50/50 and making it 45:25 & 54:50... More

We visited here for my husband's surprise birthday meal. I took banners, table confetti etc. earlier in the day which they were happy to put up. We were a party of 26 and considering the amount of us service was good. They got a few things wrong with the order but personally I thought that was acceptable especially, as food... More

I have been going to this restaurant for a few years now. The food is consistently good and the service consistently poor. I can only guess that the management does not realise that a few training sessions will go a long way. I .would really like to give a 4 or 5 rating but the service is truly appalling

We were very regular customers ( almost weekly) until our last visit. We hadn't booked but it was early about 7 pm and the restaurant was empty. We were told it would be tricky and to sit and wait. We waited and waited. People arrived and were seated. Each time we said we know what we want and would be... More
