Shahi Khana Tandoori Restaurant is located just off the main road in Norwood - this makes a big difference if you're looking for great food in a more tranquil spot in this trendy foodie location. The large selection of fare on offer is complemented with the choice of sitting inside or out. We ordered the butter chicken, which, offered as either mild, medium or hot was excellent. I had mine mild and there was more than enough kick to keep me happy. Freshly made rotis and naan breads were also delicious.

Not a top restaurant but for the price the food is really good, a similar meal at most restaurant will be 50% more expensive

We were here for dinner at a friend's birthday party, recently. This was our first Indian food buffet-style dining experience and it was memorable. They have an excellent buffet with a wide variety of delicious Indian cuisine: starters, salads, main-course dishes and desserts. The highlight is that there are several options, for those who prefer only vegetarian food.

I personally relished the various veg. pakodas (fritters) and the fried fish, in the starters sections; the sprouts/salads; and Butter Chicken and Lamb Curry, in the main-course section, with fresh hot naan (flat bread) served at our table.

The restaurant has a nice ambience and the service is excellent. We observed that there were several native South Africans who patronize this place. I would definitely recommend this to non-Indians as most of the dishes were mildly flavoured and would suit their palate well.

A great Indian gem in Norwood.

I visited on Saturday when they do the buffet special - you will not be disappointed. An array of dishes - starters to desserts with so much variety on offer.

The hosts are kind and helpful, the restaurant is simply decorated and the food is the main show.

Lots of regulars and locals!

The chicken curry, lamb curry and rice pudding was particularly enjoyed.

For a good curry, I definitely recommend Shahi Khana!

Were looking for an Indian Restaurant and spotted Shahi Khana. We arrived early 6pm and it was fully booked. They managed to make a table for us. We were even more delighted it was an 'all you can eat buffet' for R75. I loved curries. The buffet had a good selection and it was not overly strong so you could enjoy all the different ones. Our server was non existent but apart from that staff were friendly, nice atmosphere and it quickly filled up.

We always said, a good sign of an Indian (or any specific type of cuisine restaurant) is if other Indian patron eats there, as they know whether the curries and food are good or not. And they had a lot of Indians come in for dinner.

I would highly recommend making a reservation. Not sure if it is busy every night light that but surely on a Tuesday 'All you can eat buffet'.

This was at the Norwood Restaurant.
