“Fantastic food, fabulous service”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

After a busy day touring around the lakes we decided an Indian meal was needed. The food and service was excellent. A wide variety of curry s was available. The food was fresh, not greasy and very tasty. Big portions, great value and one of the best Indian meals I have had in a long time. The waiters (jack) made it extra special.

“Fantastic :)”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant last night and it was one of the best indian restaurants we have ever been to and we have been to loads. The food was delicious, great value for money, quick service and a non rushed atmosphere. The owner Jack was an excellent host making us feel very welcome. If in bowness definately visit this restaurant just above some shops in the centre.

“Delicious food, excellent service and lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

We recently stayed in Winderemere for our wedding anniversary and dined at Shahib's for the second time- last time we visited the lakes we ate here and had a great experience.

Our second visit as good as the first. On arrival the staff werw very friendly and attentive- this continued throughout our meal. The staff are a credit to the restaurant. We had our 9 week old son with us and we were told just to ask if we needed hot water or anything for him.

The food was amazing- great portion sizes and very tasty. Good value for money and delivered to the table with no long waits even though there was a very large party in the restaurant.

The decor is simple and modern which was quite refreshing- lovely wooden floors.

would definitely recommend this restaurant and will visit again!
