We have used the New Shad for takeaways and sit down. The takeaways are normally consistently good. We have generally had good experiences in the restaurant. However, on our last visit with friends their order was given with some healthy requests regarding less salt and sugar on the dishes on the menu. It appeared to be very difficult to achieve... More

This is an 'out of town' restaurant that is situated up a hill from Strood in the district of Frindsbury. I've been using this place since it opened 10+ years ago and have yet to be disappointed. Friendly service, reasonable prices (especially on the banquet nights of Tuesday and Wednesday) and being 'child friendly' make this a popular local restaurant.... More

Have been here a couple of times now and experience has varied between good and okay. Service was pleasant enough on both occasions but food wise the experience was quite different between the respective trips

Great restaurant and take away. If you want fast food then look elsewhere, they cook to order here and the food is worth the wait. Have eaten in and had numerous take aways and never had a problem at all. It's best to book your table in advance as it is usually busy at the end of the week and... More

Excellent tasty fresh food with great service. Chicken jalfrezi with a mixed starter washed down with 'a few' ice cold cobra's... Well looked after and left happy. Great value for money!

Absolutely fantastic!! We visited this rratsuarant last night (14/01/2017) and the service was impeccable. Service seemed personal to each customer and the food was out of this world. We called last minute for a table and they gladly fitted us in. From now on we are 100% coming here!!

Went for Sunday lunch with family and only people in the restaurant. Food took 30mins to arrive, which is fine as you think it is going to be fresh! When food did arrive it was OK but when the chapatis arrived and they were ready made from a packet was a absolute disgrace!! Never been to an Indian and been... More

the food was outstanding! very good portions and the quality was amazing considering it was banquet night. Loved the king prawn butterfly, as well as the chicken nageena, that was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant because to top it off, the service was just impressive seeing as the restaurant was filled up.
