Description: The renowned and award-winning restaurant, part of the well-regarded Shampan Group, has just reopened after a major refurbishment and the introduction of a new A la carte and drinks menu. A modern and eye-catchingly sleek design, taking inspiration from the group’s flagship establishment Shampan at the Spinning Wheel in Westerham, the upstairs, ground floor dining area attracts with the focal point of a centrally placed bar whilst the basement dining area, the Cinnamon Room, places emphasis on alcoves and intimate booth seating along with a spacious lounge and seating area for the downstairs bar. Highlights amongst the new menu include starters such as Pickled Paneer & Pepper Melody (with tomato & chilli coulis) to Tandoor Seared Organic Salmon (with lemongrass & chilli), along with mains including Kerala Spiced King Prawns, Curry Leaf & Coconut Sauce, Coconut Rice, and Shampan’s signature Chicken Masala & Pilau Rice.

“Please sir, can I have some more?”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

I have sampled my first indian meal since moving to the Bromley area a few months ago. Upon recommendation from both a local cab driver and a friend, I booked a table at Shampan for dinner.

Despite the slightly long wait, both myself and my partner enjoyed our meals and the menu was broad and the portions are generous. The staff were attentive and I would definitely like to go back. The only thing that I thought could have been better was if the music could have been the same downstairs as upstairs - as I am pretty sure nobody wants to hear a girlband cover an old East17 track whilst dining on indian cuisine!!

I look forward to going back to try out more of the menu - but I would recommend trying to book a table upstairs if you can.

Hi Liz R,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review for Shampan Bromley. And if you can remember the local cab company that recommended you please let us know so we can thank them :)

We apologise for the wait you had but it seems like it was worth it. We will definitely look into your query regarding the music and yes you are right the choice of music was probably not a good one :).

Please do come back soon so we can impress you with more dishes from our menu. This year we are being nominated for 'Best Indian Restaurant London Suburbs' so would really appreciate if you could nominate us via the British Curry Website.

Look forward to seeing you soon
Sufian.

“Superb Indian Restaurant right on our doorstep”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We went to Shampan 2 last Friday night and we had a fantastic evening. The food was absolutely superb with so many lovely flavours, tastes and spices and the portion sizes were huge.

The weighting staff were very good and left us alone to enjoy our meal until we needed them.

It was all topped off by the offer of a free drink of which I had a Brandy, which I'm happy to say was a good quality Brandy and not the usual cheap offering provided as a free after dinner drink.

The ambiance of the restaurant was also very nice and I would recommend this place to anybody.

I'll also be paying a visit again to sample the Shampan 2 Sunday buffet.

Thanks for a top meal amd a nice evening :-)

Hi Dseaton01,

Thanks so much for your great review. It was a pleasure seeing you in the restaurant. We are glad you enjoyed the food, the variety and the taste. We appreciate that every Indian restaurant says they offer the best food but we are certain that within Bromley we honestly do have the tastiest food and we do give good portion s too.

Our staff are very considerate towards our customers, always on hand but never intrusive.

The complimentary drink is just us saying thank you from us to you and just as our food is of the highest quality so are our drinks.

We try to create a relaxing and welcoming environment as we feel our diners enjoy the experience much more if they are comfortable.

You are most welcome any time in the restaurant and we look forward to seeing you at our Sunday buffet, we have a great Father's Day buffet.

Thanks for recommending us to your friends and we hope we can impress them just as we have impressed you.

Look forward to seeing you again.

This year is the 10th annual British Curry Awards. We would really like to win 'Best Indian Restaurant London Suburbs'. Please do take a moment to vote via the British Curry Website.

Thank and look forward to seeing you again soon.

“Bromley's best by far!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Shampan 2 has never failed to impress any friends or family who I bring, some from very far afield. I am astonished at how the team has managed to maintain a consistent high level of excellence!

The restaurant has always been a cut above the average Indian eatery and adds value in all aspects, continually keeping up with times. The food is well worth the money you pay, all freshly prepared and ranging from authentic Indian fare to contemporary & unique flair; yes the drinks are slightly expensive but this is a restaurant after all. The service is something else - we're always welcomed like long lost family by Maz & Sham who always ensure we leave satisfied. That said when neither are around the other staff have a high level of competency and deliver the same great service.

It's no puzzle as to why the Shampan name has expanded over the years, regularly winning at the annual British Curry Awards. Both of their other branches are terrific, but Shampan Bromley is most certainly my long standing favourite.

Thanks for your review TheOneChoudhary,

We are glad you enjoyed your visit to the restaurant and we are happy to know that each time you visit us you are impressed each time! Thank you for your comments regarding the level of service and excellence. This is one area we feel is important to our customers.

Shampan Bromley appreciates we have competition but we always try and stay ahead of the game to ensure we are not like other Indian restaurants or 'curry houses'. We offer generous portions, authentic dishes using the finest ingredients to ensure our customers certainly do get value for money.

We always treat our customers with the utmost respect as we like to get to know our customers, after all it is the customers who enable us to run a successful establishment. We will definitely pass on your comments to Maz and Sham.

Thanks for the comments regarding all the restaurants and what better accolade than the awards we have won from The British Curry Awards. Thanks for the fantastic review and we look forward to seeing you again very soon.

Regards
Sufian
