We were made welcome by a member of staff who showed us to our table and took our drinks order. Shahib’s has a extensive menu with unusual interesting choices.
Lovely food, well presented, in comfortable surroundings and a decent price.
We have eaten Indian food in many locations around the country and all the Resteraunt in this area, this is the best Indian food in in Bowness and Windermere.

They refused to deliver to a holiday let despite us being close by. So we patronised Lake Raj instead and we definitely were not disappointed.

Visited on 17th Sept. Had a fantastic prawn starter with prawns and really good chillies and one of the menu specials as a main course. The main had a lovely smokey flavour with the meats cooked in the clay oven. I have eaten many, many curries over the years with this one being in the top three. Service was prompt, polite and very professional. Thoroughly recommended.

Today I myself and my family visited this restaurant name Shahib's Indian Restaurant and Takeaway, Crag Brow, Bowness-in-Windermere, England. When we enter the restaurant we face a staff of the restaurant his name was Jakir he asked my wife to see the notice outside before enter where it is written that people who want to eat they should spend atleast for £10. My wife felt so embarrassed about this manner that she replied the man we are 6 people it will be more than even £80. But anyway he was so rude to my wife and refused to serve. Later I myself request to the man as my mother come up using stairs and he agreed with so unhappy. We entered seated and waiting for someone to take the order. But all staff are busy with something else instead of taking order from us. Actually they just try to insulted us by not taking order. Later we came out from the shop and go another Indian restaurant nearby. I was so upset about the people's behave. Instead of welcome us he rudely asked us to read the notice outside. I came to know from the other restaurant that this is not only with us they do same behave with others.
My question if they do the same behave with customers how they have been treated a good restaurant. Of course not. They should do some minimum respect with the people. I will tell here this restaurant should be avoided by the tourist and local people of Windermere. Their staff are so rude. When we are leaving the restaurant one of the guy was shouting with us. They do no know manner and behave. I Hope before you consider to eat something in this restaurant name Shahib's Indian Restaurant and Takeaway in Crag Brow, Bowness-in-Windermere, England think twice that you might be faced the same insulation by the rude staff of the restaurant. Thanks
