Been going to the Shama for years on and off - recently rediscovered it and food better than ever, welcome as warm as always with a real personal touch- and now bring own alcohol it makes for a really cheap night too! Best value and warmest welcome in town

“Impressive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

Never really thought about going to Fartown for a curry but this place was recommended by a friend. Very friendly atmosphere and staff who greeted us like old friends. Food was excellent all reasonably priced, we was asked if needed a breather between courses which was nice, makes a change to being rushed to clear the table. We took our own beer which made it even more reasonably priced. a great eating place and to top it off I was given a red rose after paying the bill. We will definitely be back very soon :)

“brilliants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

driven past this place many of times and from the out side it looks a bit grimy but inside is a total different place. Really glad we went.

customer service excellent - foods brilliant -restaurant ambience really nice - Bring your own beer but the toilets are a bit grubby.

Would say though this has been the best customer service I have received in a log time. Your made to feel welcome and staff all polite. Money well spent

“Family celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

This is a gem, and you would drive passed if you didn't know just how good the food is. There is also an added bonus in that you can take your own drink, which makes a good night out not too expensive. The staff can not do enough for you and the food is second to none. If you haven't been, you've missed out, I would recommend it if you live in the area. Clean, fantastic food and great staff what's not to like.
