The Shama has been an institution in Bingley for many years.Unfortunately as the years have gone by the prices have gone up and the portions of curry have decreased rapidly.This is the case for both meals in and meals out. If your wanting a decent...More

Went for a long walk on Moor round Bingley. Got back starving. So came here for a curry. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Food was extremely delicious. Absolutely nothing not to like. No wonder they were busy.

Why don't you have Chicken Tikka as a main with salad and Raita dressing? It's grilled in the tandor and very tasty. Remember you can take your own alcohol too - enjoy!!😊

There is a very good choice of vegetarian dishes on the menu but you would have to ring the Shama direct for the vegan enquiry. As a family we love the Shama and don't go anywhere else for our curry fix, both eating in and... More
