Im from the midlands where its hard to get a bad Indian. Ive tried most in the town and hands down Shezan is the best, its not your typical madras or vindaloo type place. All the staff are spot on and the price is reasonable. The place maybe looks a bit dated but its the food that counts and its... More

Had wanted to order another side dish but was out of their sight and couldn't get their attention, consequently, I gave up. Likewise, waited ages to attract attention of... More

Food is fresh and tasty. Been several times and always good. Authentic food. Suggest booking as always busy! But we always get a table. Quiet restaurants usually say something! Getting drinks was slow.

We had a takeaway this time. I always choose the Jalfrezi Chicken with rice and I also ordered Chicken Saag for a friend. The food here is always tasty. I never feel let down or disappointed. The service from all the staff is friendly and the pricing is right. What needs to be pointed out is how happy customers are... More
