I found the owner very welcoming and it was a nicely laid out restaurant. Food came quite quickly and madras was nice. No issues at all.

A clean restaurant with questionable service. King Prawn Tandoori had 3 prawns and was £13.50... Prawns overcooked and chewy. Unacceptable and no discount offered after complaining for the manager twice. Frustratingly the staff seemed amused by the issue and offered me and my friend "drinks on the house" assuming we just wanted to get drunk (presumably). We refused and left... More

I eat out a lot . . . almost enough to be a real restaurant critic ! In all my travels in the Cotswolds and beyond The Shaan is not just my favourite Indian, it's my favourite restaurant full stop. Genuine, consistent, fine, truly fresh ingredients conjured into divine exciting dishes by their obviously highly skilled chefs. The staff are... More

The Shaan generally has nice food, but like other good indian restaurants, they let their customers down by taking too many take-away orders & can't properly service their customers. The meal we had was poor, but the waiter was much worse. I really try not to leave bad reviews, but having spent the day in treatment in hospital, I just... More

We've been to the Shaan a few times and have always had good food. The staff are always friendly and welcoming, and help to create a good atmosphere. The restaurant isn't too big though, so if you wish to get a table I would recommend booking in advance.

We stayed up in Witney for an overnight treat and originally were going to eat in the hotel restaurant as it had good reviews. However, after having a couple of drinks in one of the local pubs we changed our minds and decided to try The Shaan. I'd checked the Tripadvisor reviews and they were very positive. We were not...

Great place to go for dinner! Despite the many tables, the restaurant can get quite busy on the weekends so make sure to make a reservation if you don't want to wait. The curry, tikka masala and jalfrezi were delicious. My only complaint was at the end of the meal we asked for a take away bag but they forgot... More

Went recently when me and my partner were staying in the area and the food was fantastic. Bit small inside but the food more than makes up for that along with the service. Well priced as well and it came out pretty quick too.
