“Very Good”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

I have driven past this restaurant many times but do not live locally to it and had no previous need to stop off there. However yesterday I stopped off with my family after a long journey to have an early dinner on the way home. We found the staff very polite and helpful and the business seemed very popular with the local residents, many of who were collecting take-away dinners.

The restaurant seemed well maintained and clean and the menu offered several dishes we had not come across (we are keen curry eaters). The food was well prepared, the meats succulent and well presented and the whole meal tasted delicious.

I would recommend this place and may well make a return visit despite it being several miles from our house.

“An Old Favourite”
Reviewed 17 December 2012

My wife and I eat at the Shomraat at least once a month and normally much more frequently. We are normally accompanied by various members of our family. Our youngest son being the keenest who likes the menu better than many of the other places we also go to.

We go to the Shomraat not because it has the best food, though it does have an interesting menu with many Tabaq dishes that are well worth trying. It is because it provides a very pleasant venue, manages to maintain the quality of its food, and provides good value for money and most importantly - we have always found the management and staff very pleasant, courteous and helpful.

There are normally people sitting down with a drink waiting for take-away meals. If you treat a visit to a restaurant like you would a fast food outlet, then you may be dismayed about the apparent priority given to processing take-away orders. Personally I like the fact that it slows down the meal.

The place is normally busy, but we have never had to book. This may be because we normally tend to go relatively early on Friday evenings (say 6:30-7:00)

PS: If you like hot food then the Nagaria (chicken or lamb) is highly recommended (this can be VERY hot)

“Friendly”
Reviewed 14 November 2012

The Shomraat is very close to home, and we have eaten there dozens of times over the past 10 years. Staff are always really welcoming and friendly and the food is tasty and good value. I have eaten in Indian restaurants where the food is better, but they have either been much more expensive, or in New Delhi.

I have not reviewed the Shomraat before, but thought I should balance the two "terrible" reviews from the same reviewer, who on each occasion (18 months apart) stated that he would never eat there again!
