Weve been to dublin before and ate at the katmandu indian restaurant 100 yards away from shan and katmandu was superb food and service.....total opposite to shan. Our problem was that we wanted a good indian meal and tried to get in at katmandu, but that place closed at 11pm and we were too late, & we saw a guy... More

Was conned by a guy with a bill board stating best Indian in temple bar and open til 4am. However, avoid! avoid! avoid! food was terrible house red wine was not drinkable and was very expensive. We felt we'd been ripped off would not recommend at all.

Have ended up here at the end of a few Dublin nights out. If you crave spice after an evening of downing some Temple Bar pints then Shan is for you. Very friendly staff and food which far exceeds other neighbouring late night eateries. Decor is colourful and most definetly Indian while TV screens relay Bollywood videos. Menu is extensive...starters... More

The FSAI, (food standards authority of Ireland), have issued this establishment with a closure order, October 2016, under the control of foodstuffs act, 1998. Say no more.

Shut by order from 10/10/2016 for nine days. Why anyone would want to eat in a place that had to be shut down by the FSAI is beyond me. I'm sure they passed inspection but old habits die hard.

The food was decent, but I must say I had better. I ordered the butter chicken and my girlfriend had tika masala. Both dishes were to sweet, felt like they adapted the taste to suit European people and it's taken away from the otenticity. Over all good service at reasonable prices.

Amazing Indian food here, will definitely return again and again. Had the tikka masala and it was best I've had! If you're visiting Dublin make sure to visit

Atmosphere is very great, though they have tried to decor it in an Indian way. Chicken tikka I had ordered was served to me within 5 minutes and that itself was an indication that it was not fresh and was very chewy (probably because of heating it again). Glass of wine served was probably one of the cheapest they could... More
