Where to find it – 12 The Pantiles, Bexleyheath DA7 5HD
‘Excellent’ reviews – 24 out of 36
What reviewers say: “Had our second lockdown delivery from Shahi and as usual food was excellent. I’m not a big hot curry or too spicy fan so go for the Chicken Tikka with Masala sauce on the side along with a section of sides, rice and bread. Ordered through their website it states a delivery time of 45 mins but on both occasions it’s arrived much quicker. It’s always been very hot and fresh and never lacks flavour.”
“This is by far the best Indian around .. we have a delivery every Friday and I wouldn’t go anywhere else ever again, top quality dishes full of meat and flavour, cooked to my specification, delivered with a smile and always on time.”
