We ordered takeout from here for two families for dinner. The food was great. There are not many Indian restaurants in Cincinnati so it's hard to find one that's good. This one is! Highly recommend.

This is our go-to Indian restaurant. We love Shaan! The owner and the staff are always so friendly, and the food is always really good. Get the samosa chaat! We will continue to come here as long as we are in the area.

Was thrilled to find this little gem in Hyde Park. Lots of different options which change periodically. My husband and I went TWICE in one week after discovering it - now I'm taking friends and family. Service is always very friendly. See you again soon.....

Went to lunch buffet today . Overall pretty disappointed with the buffet and the waitress seemed gruff. Price was reasonable for a reason. If you enjoy Indian food, save your money and skip it.

Stopped in for lunch buffet, very good on all levels (price, food, and service). I'm not an Indian food expert so I just tried a little bit of several of the options and wasn't disappointed with any of it.

Best Indian in Cincinnati, always have your order ready before you even sit down. Chicken vindaloo is the best sound

A friend told me Shaan was better than Ambar. I went for lunch so it was a buffet. Since Ambar does not have a buffet a true comparison was not possible. But, the buffet was outstanding. Wonderful tastes. My only complaint - the tandoori chicken...More
