Yum! First time I've done Indian here in Rota .. I try to avoid Indian like the plague .. why?? Basically, I eat so much freaking naan that I'm sick to my stomach for like a week. (I can't help it .. it's so good .. and with the rice and the chicken and the sauce ...) We had excellent... More

Today was the second time I came. Not only was the food feet again but I tried the lamb Kashmiri and it was just as good as the chicken last time. A plus is that the service is great and the wait is short for food

Shanza III is my favorite restaurant in Rota. The food is fantastic and service is superb. The chicken tikka, naan, masalas and curries are all super and they will make the food to your liking - from spicy to mild. All around great place and our go to lunch spot in Rota.

The spiciest food you can find in Rota. Unfortunately, Spanisb don't have much of a taste bud for spicy foods....so even most Mexican Restaurants don't offer very spicy food. They offer some of the best curry I've tried.

This was a good spot, we ate early (by Spanish standards) so the dining room was empty which meant our food came quickly. I had lamb vindaloo and basmati rice which was all very tasty. Will definitely return!
