We went to Shahanaz after it had recently been refurbished. As we went in we were told to sit down and on the table in the so called bar area there was a plastic Tupperware box with wasabi nuts in for people to help themselves - not exactly the most inviting way to present nibbles!
We were not asked if we wanted a drink while we were waiting but were soon invited to a table. All the way through we had to prompt for service. Food was good value but quite bland and there was not much distinction between different dishes. plates were look warm and the bread was bordering on stale. We had to prompt for our table to be cleaned, only for it to be cleaned with 'mr muscle'.at the end we were asked if everything was okay and we pointed out our concerns only to be faced with none of it being acknowledged and the 'manager' arguing at the table that we should of complained earlier. Unfortunately this is not the first experience of poor service. the whole atmosphere was more like eating in a school canteen then in a restaurant.
Overall I would not recommend it for an evening out. you are better off going to the kebab van down the road!!!

Refurbishment is a great improvement, both inside and out (no longer bright yellow!).

Didnt eat in, but collected a takeaway. Our food was very nice, but not cheap; £29 for two mains, two veg dishes and a naan.

The new restaurant looks very nice and is definitely an improvement.

The food however let it down. The lamb was very odd tasting like it had been sat in oil for a long time and then re-cooked. It was oily, very fatty and the flavour was poor.

The menus are completely worn out with holes in them and the beer was worn.

We wont be returning.

We love the Shahanaz! We used to live in Haslemere, and where regulars at the Shahanaz, we moved to Woking - and never found a restaurant who could make a butter chicken like this one! - when we returned to the Shahanaz the friendly staff remembered us :) Always good food and good service.

Good attentive staff (we had a big family gathering including two young children) who looked after us well. We enjoyed the food but rated it as "good ordinary" - tasty without being exceptional. That said would have no problem returning.
