Great food and very friendly staff. Our friends first visit, it certainly won't be their last. We all really enjoyed our plentiful, really tasty meals.

Great food as always. Really nice staff and great atmosphere. It's the best restaurant in kingsthorpe area and one of the best in all of Northampton. Strongly recommend.

We had the feast special which was good value for money and manage to adjust some of the items with a bit if extra money. The side dish Tarka dall was extremely tasty the best side dish made freshly.

Great food. Great choice. Very nice staff. The unusual menu is a refreshing change from the usual predictable menus at other restaurants. Good prices too!

This is a very nice restaurant. Good food and good value. However, as we visited on a Saturday evening, the small space was very busy, limiting conversation and we were close to the kitchen door so it was a bit distracting. Our main courses also took a long time to arrive, even though some of our group had starters. The seven people present all enjoyed our meals. So, I'd definitely recommend it, but probably best to visit on a week day evening rather than the weekend.

We like the location of the restaurant in the old high street Kingsthorpe. The restaurant itself is comfortable and cosy. We were celebrating ones graduation and had a great time and the staff were helpful making sure we were catered for including supply a special glass for champagne. Everyone enjoyed their meal. It was a great night. Thank you.

The quality of the food at Shajahan on High Street in Kingsthorpe village is consistently excellent. Booking is easy and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. Portion sizes are good and because they don't have an alcohol licence, taking your own drink is encouraged so the bill is always smaller than you'd usually expect!

Even though the restaurant was busy as it was a Saturday night we didn't have to wait long for a waiter to take our order. We had a lovely meal .This restaurant is worth a visit, and how many Indian restaurants show Bollywood movies on 2 big screens not many ,this one does.

Great food at very reasonable prices. Excellent service, polite and unhurried.The food was well cooked and full of flavour. It was not drenched in oil like some curry houses. Worth noting that it is a BYO drink restaurant, no alcohol is available on the menu.
