Delicious food and great service! We highly recommend Shahi! It’s our favorite Indian restaurant in Omaha- and a favorite spot of ours when we dine downtown.

Our group of friends loves eating at Shahi! The food is delicious, the seating is comfortable, and the staff are friendly. It's an especially convenient place to eat before a Creighton basketball game or an evening at the Holland Performing Art Center. We found out at this visit that the staff are now paid a decent, livable wage and so they do not accept tips. Good for Shahi! Another reason to support this great restaurant!

We went on Valentine’s Day, it was the second time we’ve been to this restaurant. It was great both times. The food is excellent, service was too. I love the salmon they do an amazing job with it. Great place!

Our food was delicious, and Kamala was an attentive and friendly server. We got an appetizer combo, naan, chicken tikka masala, malai kofta, and chicken rogan josh.

They have a no tipping policy, which kind of worried us, but our server assured us she gets more per hour than before the policy started. They do a lot of takeout business, and the takeout customers weren’t tipping anyway.

Great service. Very friendly. The one price menu offerings were a good value. No tips. We even tried to tip our friendly server at the end. Food was very tasty and served in attractive uniquely shaped dishes. The usual Indian cuisine offerings are available. There were 4 of us and we could have shared three entrees. The soup bowl was large and filling. An item that was deemed too salty was removed from our bill. I will definitely return.

Food was fantastic and service was great. A little odd was the fact that we cannot tip our server. This restaurant has moved to a “review based” rewards program for the employees. It makes no sense to me and makes the tipping cumbersome. Other than this oddity, everything was great

We met some friend at Shahi for New Year’s Eve dinner before the fireworks show downtown. The food was delicious- service was great. They even took a picture of us by their New Year’s Eve display at the front door.

The food is great. The place appears to be bigger in pictures but it is the right size to avoid prolonged waiting and crowding. The service is very good, perfect time between courses and personnel always attentive and knowledgeable.

Shahi has delicious food and cheerful servers. It was not crowded, which was wonderful, because we could hear each other well. I want you to know about this place so it can stay open, and I can return. It is a little out of the way, but so conveniently located .
Try it: you will not be disappointed.
We all loved it!

Nice place and service was good. Paper on the tables was not a good thing. If you want to make it elegant, white butcher paper is not the way to go.
Food had a good flavor, but was over cooked and that made the food very dry. The rice and the nanna bread was outstanding.

Great Indian food- Wed is 1/2 price bottles of wine, making dinner very reasonable. We’ve been here a few times & everything we’ve had is consistently good. The order of na’an is huge & yummy. We usually get paneer dishes, there’s a lot of choice.

We had a great time! It was our first visit and we got sat down right away. We tried the non-vegetarian dinner for two with the combination appetizer platter and learned so much about the food. Medium might have been a bit too spicy for us, but it was still a great, flavorful experience.

Waitress only came to see us twice. Manager had to fill our drink glasses. Then she said “I don’t even eat Indian food that much.” Sounds like time to get a new wait staff.

My wife and I went for a date night and enjoyed it. We had a vegetable samosa to start; my wife got Chicken Madras and I got Chicken Biryani, we shared a garlic naan. The server accidentally put my order in as Butter Chicken, but realized it at some point and checked with me and placed the correct order. They gave me both dishes and didn't charge me for the Butter Chicken.

We both ordered our food Spicy, which brings up the great "American Spicy or Indian Spicy" debate, but my wife's wasn't spicy at all, mine was a little bit. This is always hard to get right, so if you want it spicy, make sure you're clear you want it very spicy. While we'd have enjoyed a bit more kick, all three dishes were excellent. My Biryani was flavorful, and I loved the saffron rice.

They have a few Indian beers and some basic American beers, a medium sized wine list (which we skipped after overindulging the night before).

Overall, I enjoyed it. We had entirely too much food, left stuffed, and took home leftovers which reheated perfectly. Prices were great for what we got.

The decor was nice, a little less traditional than most Indian restaurants. However, for only being open 4 months, some elements were surprisingly worn looking or needing attention, but it didn't really detract much.

Very tasty Indian food. I had the chicken korma; my wife the shrimp korma. They were terrific. The breads were big, fresh and sprawling - a nice accompaniment. The service was first class and the decor is lovely. We are looking forward to going back. We tried it because of a review by Sarah Baker Hansen, the Omaha World-Herald food critic.

This is the first time my wife and I have eaten at Shahi Indian Grill. I had the Butter Chicken and my wife had Shrimp Korma. What I liked about both options is you had a choice between mild, medium or hot spice. The Butter Chicken was perfectly spiced for my taste and the same could be said for my wife's Shrimp Korma. My chicken was very tender as well. We ordered the Naan bread as a side and it was a perfect combination to the meal. I would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone that has a liking to Indian food.

This is a new restaurant that is just getting started. We had a Sunday brunch. The main menu was not available. There were only ten or fewer other patrons in the restaurant. The buffet offered a variety of items. The quality of the food is good, but not outstanding. The staff was very pleasant and the price was reasonable. There is plenty of competition in the Old Market area, so this restaurant will be hard pressed
to find a niche.
