Description: Welcome to the Shahib's tripadvisor page. We are a bespoke Indian & Bangladeshi restaurant, our style of cooking is that of Bangladeshi/ Indian homemade feel. We use the freshest spices and herbs along with the tenderest meats to create our unique, fresh and bespoke dishes. We are situated upstairs above the arcade in the heart of Bowness on Windermere. Perfect view of the much appreciated picturesque town center . We can cater for large parties as we have a seperate dining room aswell as our main dining area for 60 covers, be it 8, 10 or 30. We can accomadate without a problem. Our seating arrangements give ample space for customers not tight fit or cramped. Aswell as dining in we offer a takeout service with 30% off total bill.

Have been here before a few years ago but now it is under new management. Food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Service was great and very friendly. It is easily missed from the street but it's definitely worth a visit.

We visited here because of the reviews. Food was nice, perhaps a little oily. A good variety of dishes and lots of flavours in my fish curry. Bombay aloo very nice. It wasn't very busy but that might have been because it was a Wednesday. I would say that it was worth trying but wouldn't rush to go back. Overall I think it is quite difficult to find a really good indian restaurant in the Lake District!

Have been a few times and very much like the madras and tikka masala. The garlic chicken tikka starter is also particularly good.

We chose this restaurant purely because of the reviews on here.
Service was attentive without being too much. Food was lovely and the waiter offered his advice on dishes which was really helpful as we nearly ordered two very similar dishes and we wanted a variety.
Prices were reasonable on food and drink.
We (all four of us) enjoyed our meal and will definitely visit again
Thank you

we were staying in Windermere on a 2 night break and on our first night we went into Bowness to look for an indian restaurant, found this one which used to be the Emperor of Indian and has only been refurbished and open since July last year. It was early and we were the only ones in the restaurant. The waiter was very nice and we were shown to a table by Jack who we found out in conversation was the owner's son and the leading force. He made us very welcome and we had a great chat during the evening and the food was absolutely gorgeous - we both chose onion bhajis and chicken balti which was the best we had tasted in a long time. The decor has been chosen very well - very modern but comfortable. On leaving we were chatting to Jack's dad as he had gone out with the takeaways and we expressed how pleased we were. We would like to wish them every success in their venture and we will certainly return when we are in Bowness again. (Pam and Tony)
