Here at the Shish Mahal we like to think of our food as a journey, one during which we can take you places which will excite, places you might not have thought of going, but ones you will enjoy once you get there. Our menu takes you on a trip from the ultra-cool slopes of the Himalayas to the fiery plains of Madras, from the lush valleys of Swat to the bountiful Indian Ocean, with more than several stops along the way.

Good food and good service will never go out of fashion. Our motto is: “Unspoilt by progress”, and we plan to keep it that way. Our customers are almost as eclectic as our menu. They come back, year after year, from far-flung corners of the globe, and they recommend us to their friends, something that we find particularly heart-warming. We hope that you will find our menu and your meal to be equally heart-warming. Welcome to the Shish Mahal.

    If you go here and have not tried the hasina lamb chops then your missing something special. Plenty of staff on hand for excellent service.

    The Shish Lunch menu offers fabulous value for money. The food is excellent - three of us enjoyed samosas, pakoras, chicken tikka and a delicious minced lamb dish with potato. The ice cream dessert with raspberry sauce transported me back to my childhood cones!

    Bad Tikka Masala for a place the prouds itself as the inventor of aforemenitioned meal. Also some of the staff were not very pleasant and wanted us out of the restaurant as soon as possible. Anyways - I DON’T RECOMMEND.

    Sorry to say but very disappointed. Food was mediocre at best, portions were OK as it was a 3 course for £12.95 , but all of it was not great except the peshawari nan... Samosa was so thick it was barely able to be cut. Lamb was OK... Service was good . Can't really say much more than this...I wouldn't recommend.

    I was on a nostalgia tour having worked in Glasgow some 40 years ago. We used to frequent the old shish on Gibson Street on a regular basis. Oh, how disappointing the new one is. The pickles with the pops were tasteless and the pakora, just red hot. My dhansak was like tasteless puree, without any sweet or sour accent to it. My partners buttered chicken was basically congealed butter. The unsmiling staff rushed us through within an hour and if truth be known, we were happy to get out. A real shame

    Greeted by the most unhelpful ignorant man upon arrival. He couldn’t find our booking we were told to sit at what they called a bar! Despite tables free it was utter chaos they were too busy dealing with takeaways full table of bags of food sitting, the place is dated and the food looked pretty poor having sat for sometime with no one come near us we decided to leave. Terrible service I would not recommend this restaurant go to Ashoka Ashton lane.

    The SHISH is the place to go if you want curry. Food is excellent, as is the service and ambience. The Maitre D’ is a bit stuffy but apart from that I am reminded in some ways of Raffles in Singapore.

    Overall a disappointing visit. Despite booking via Open Table the restaurant had no record of my booking and it was only when I showed them the confirmation email on my phone that a table was found. The staff gave the impression that they couldn't be bothered serving us and were mostly quite abrupt. The starters we ordered were excellent but the main courses were not up to the usual standard. Haven't been for a while due to covid etc. but there was little about my visit that would entice me to return anytime soon.

    The food we ordered was supposed to be mild dishes, but the chicken tikka masala was so spicy I could not eat it. So it was a wasn't of money & it wasn't cheep. Coming from Birmingham the curry capital of the UK the meal I didn't eat was poor.

    Food was really good as usual. However the server we had who was around 55 was not helpful and it was as if he didn't want to be at work. Not the usual service we get in this restaurant We would go again but if sa.e server we would ask to move to a different area that he was not responsible for.

    What lovely lunch we had. The menu was quite extensive and the quality of food was perfect. Service was great and quick. Value for money was good. We left a little bit more noisy number of stars as although we were are the window which was great there was a table of six men ex rangers footballer and journalist who were a bit loud and gushy and it broke the flow of our concession a few times. Only a minor point
