Fantastic food and great atmosphere
Food was nice, but the waiting staff were constantly on at us to have more alcoholic drinks they barely left the table it became very over bearing so I asked them stop it, they were a little miffed but glad I said something. Restaurant is lovely looking but I feel you are paying for that look. Everything was very expensive & food wise no different to most other curry houses. I wouldn’t recommend it!!
A good friendly restaurant food was good and is generally consistent whether it’s take away or eat in
Excellent service, lovely food. Would highly recommend dining at Shampan Bromley
The waiter wasn't very helpful everything seemed too much trouble, very overpriced both my friend and myself was very unimpressed
My 3rd visit to Shampan Bromley, but first since it's refurbishment. This restaurant has so much potential which it doesn't quite meet up to. It is an odd location for a fine dining Indian restaurant to be fair. The quality of the food is always good, though I do feel it under-spices the mild dishes to be a little bland. Quality of ingredients is always good however. The food is expensive for what it is, you're paying a lot for the nice decor and numerous staff on hand.
Service is very variable depending which waiter you have assigned. I had booked a table for 4 but was directed to a table set for 3. I had to ask twice for the extra place to be laid while we waited for our friends to arrive. Our waiter was distracted by everything else going on, but when he paid us attention was friendly and jovial.
I'll try other local Indian restaurants, or other Shampan's, to compare to before coming back again unfortunately.
Despite it being a Tuesday night, there were lots of other diners. Waitstaff were friendly and the food was delicious.
Never disappointed whenever I go to Shampan, always amazing food and great service
Our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Shampan. Very friendly and efficient staff. Beautiful menu and artistic plating of food. Every course was delicious. Thank you Shampan staff.
As always, amazing food! Was a shame that the card payment machine was not working, but other than that a grea catch up with friends was had
Very nice meal but at £147 for three people a bit expensive and that with no starters or desert
Good food, great service and not bad value. Took my brother who was over from Sydney Australia and he enjoyed it very much. Was impressed at the standard of a ‘local’ Indian restaurant. Being a Tuesday evening, it was relatively quiet in there and I’m sure the atmosphere is more lively towards the end of the week - it’s a great place to have on your doorstep for any occasion.
As usual, great food, great service and great ambience.
I was slightly underwhelmed by Shampan. The food was quite good and tasty, but not as good as say Masala Dabbas in Orpington. Portion sizes were average, but not generous (how much does rice cost after all). The pappodoms were pre-broken, another possible saving for the restaurant, again not generous at £2.00 a pop(padom). The dress code was stated as smart casual, but there were groups in track suit bottoms and running shorts, which lowered the ambiance, as did their foul and loud mouthed voices. The management need to speak to these parties of blokes (straight out of the Chatterton Arms opposite), but they are probably afraid of losing their main source of income. With the abundance of restaurants these days, I won’t hurry back to Shampan.
Good Indian sub-continent cuisine in a pleasant atmosphere. Air-conditioned.
I have been here many times and it is always good whether you go in a small or large group.
This was our first visit to Shampan, we had heard lots of good things about it, so were keen to try it out. The first point to note that the square tables for 4 are too small, we ended up putting things on the floor. The waiter was keen but once he realised that we wanted to take our time, he was fine, a really nice guy. The food was amazing, would highly recommend the food. Its very noisy in there, like most restaurants these days, fabric to absorb the noise is missing, so even on a small table for 4 we did struggle to hear. But yes I would recommend Shampan
Live insect in the food and was charged for the pleasure of it!! Poor poor customer service! Expensive and really not worth the money that it came to. Emailed them twice for their comments before posting this but they couldn’t even be bothered to reply. Not good would definitely not recommend
We have visited many times previously and had a good experience however it seems that it is being run by bew people. The food here was absolutely beautiful however the service was appalling. We were left for 15 minutes before we ordered food and waiting on staff were very rude. In particular at the end of the meal I requested that the ‘discretionary tip’ (pre added to the total cost of the bill as a compulsory payment) was removed as we would prefer to pay in cash. We paid and sat for a further 10 minutes and finished our drinks. We intended to leave the tip as we left the table however the waiting staff and manager repeatedly came to our table, looked at the tip tray and then at us and walked away. After they had visited our table several times the waiter who seemed ‘in charge’ walked over, grabbed the receipt and turned away without saying anything.
We were incredibly offended by the whole experience and will not be visiting again. A shame because the food is beautiful.
lovely food and service but very expensive for a sunday night out
First time visiting and will definitely be back excellent food and beautiful food
Food was very good and Service only quibbles were rice dishes only enough for one person yet as expensive as a portion for 2 at most other Indian restaurants and we weren’t offered the usual ‘drink on the house’ at the end of our meal
First visit back to this restaurant since refurbishment. Previously had always loved the food and enjoyed dining here. We found the service very poor and capped off by presenting the bill to us when it had not been requested. Dessert ordered was frozen and could not be eaten but waiting staff were not at all bothered.
The prices have increased on a slightly tweaked menu and probably to cover refurbishment costs.
Will not be rushing back to this restaurant!
Lovely meal for a family birthday. Staff very attentive. Good really tasty.
This was our first time here, the food was outstanding in every way. The staff made sure you and the food was ok. We will be going again to this restaurant. To say I’m not really into this kind of food, loved it loved it.
Delicious food. Great service. Will definitely be returning soon
Had an enjoyable evening. But on a very small table in the middle of a thoroughfare which was wobbly also. The food was nice and served timely. Waiters were attentive but personally would prefer a designated waiter as opposed to several coming at different times.
Excellent food, great service
Good food nice staff not too expensive never felt hurried
Excellent food and service. Very friendly staff who couldn’t do enough to help celebrate husband’s birthday.
I rated a 3 star as I've heard such great things about Shampan but left quite disappointed. We arrived and got asked our name then we were shoved to one side left standing there not knowing what was happening. The waiters didn't seem to want to be there. On a positive the starters were nice but my curry wasn't cooked great....Onions almost raw and lacked flavour in the sauce. Won't be rushing back.
The scallops were lovely and delicate and the samosas crispy. Our mains were tasty and filling. We both loved the poppadoms starter.
Our first time at the Bromley restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was up to the great standard of the Spinning Wheel Shampan where we have dinned many times.
Lovely range of food and reasonable prices.
Delicious flavours and very well cooked!
Food was lovely. We came away with very full tummy’s. Amazing staff also was very on hand.
Not a great start with food stains on the menu but nice after that. Good service.
Was as good as always, pleasant, fast service, good wine and perfect ambiance
I have to say this was the worst experience I have had at Shampan. Normally the food is amazing, but they have condensed their menu and the vegetarian options were not good. When I asked the waiter which dish out of two he would recommend he proceeded to read the narrative under the option - I can read! I wanted his opinion! I ended up ordering them both. I received 3 pieces of Paneer in each dish and when I complained I was advised "well it is a side dish". I waiter did however get me and extra dish of Paneer but half way through eating it one of the pieces of Paneer was rock solid! The waiter was mortified and quickly whisked it away before I could inspect it further! I wont be visiting again, it ruined my mums 70th birthday!
Great Christmas Eve meal at our long standing local Indian restaurant - many thanks.
The restaurants interior has been recently updated and is very nice. The menu has a wide variety of authentic Indian food and is good.
The portions arent large, you can easily eat a starter and a main with a side. Its quite expensive for an Indian restaurant, as its not fine dining. It has a good atmosphere and the food is good. Waiters were a little abrupt...could do with a bit more finess considering its quite pricey. We paid £32 a head for 2 adults and 3 children....so quite a lot.
