A novel way to spend your evening on a boat having fantastic Indian food, shame it was Nov since I'm sure during the summer the views of a sunset over the river would be fantastic

We dined here last night on our visit to Cardigan fair, to be greeted with a very friendly welcome!

And I have to admit I am a seasoned Indian... More

Consistently good food at this Indian restaurant. Located in Cardigan on the river Teifi. Located off a car park that can sometimes flood, all adding to the adventure of this unique restaurant. Good tasty food and our favourite in the local area. Accommodating in requests if tweaks required. You can eat in, get a take away and I'm told get... More

My partner and I have been going to eat at Shampan for a long time. Over the past 18 months the food quality has been remarkably consistent, tasty and spicy; everything you would want of Indian food. The service is very good and the staff are friendly. We ate there a few nights ago with 7 friends and the service... More

My husband and I ate here on a recent weekend break to the area. We thought the food was lovely, the portions are massive (we ordered a rice each but could easily of shared one) the staff are friendly and the place is clean!
