I had the discount from open table which made the experience amazing, but even if we didn't have the discount, the value for both the quantity and quality was absolutely amazing.

We usually go for a restaurant closer to us but thought it would be nice to try something new and this one was a very very very good choice. Everyone at the table loved all the food.

The decor is absolutely beautiful, clean and tidy. The service was also amazing, I never had rice served to me or my guests with silver service methods before and it was definitely something new I will remember and can use at work myself. Staff are very well trained, nice and approachable.

We will definitely visit Shezan again in the future. Guaranteed.

I thought that the food was exceptionally bad. The place has a generally odd feel, but that would have been OK if the food was acceptable. It was not. There is not a single item from the 4 starters that we ordered that I would recommend. We left after half finishing starters.

We booked a table for 7pm table for two. We had a busy schedule for the evening ahead of us, however once we got there we were told by the waiter the wait would be half an hour despite the fact that we had a booking for 7pm. Eventually we got the table for around 8 and was bitterly disappointed. Food was enjoyable but had to be eaten in a rush due to the restaurant’s inability to give a booked table. Wouldn’t recommend to book a table here.

Terrible service and food. The Christmas night reservation at 8 pm ended up being a wait till 9 pm and then food was not served till 10 pm. They ran out of almost every food item we tried to order. Total confusion and many customers complaining around us. They need to re-examine how they might be able to run their business.

When you have to wait 2.5 hours to get your food, you know it’s not going to be worth it.

Last minute reservation after 9pm. Quite expensive for what we got - perch in the fish curry wasn’t to my liking, paratha was overly oily. At the end my after eight came with a bite out of it - replaced immediately, but still, not a good look. Staff were very pleasant and attentive, restaurant was very decorative. Probably better if we went earlier in the evening

Went to Shezan with a friend. First thing we noticed was a picture right next to our table - parts of it were torn and had been put together with tape. Badly. That should've been the giveaway - what kind of management thinks it's ok to tape together a picture that has been torn apart? Surprisingly, it was even further downhill from there...we got our chicken starter only to realise it was raw at the centre. Basic cooking 101. There were very few other people in the restaurant so not like they were too busy to get this right. Food was heavy, too spicy and just not good. This is not good restaurant. Needs an overhaul.

Perfect evening!
We chose this historic Indian restaurant, which we didn't know, mainly for the proximity to Knightsbridge.
We were surprised by the beautiful welcoming décor and the fact that it is located off the high street.
Food was amazing and there is a good selection of cocktails, wine and beers.
The service was attentive and, as usual in an Indian, never over the top!
The only downside was that it was really quiet and we could not figure out why.....
Thank you Shezan for a lovely night, we will be back soon!

It's the 2nd time I go to this restaurant. The decor is really nice. The food very good -a bit on the expensive side for an Indian though. My main and only issue is that the service is not brilliant. Last time, they spilt the quantity of a glass of wine on the table and did not offer to replace the content. This time, they were a bit amateurish again. It is an interesting place though, if you are happy to put up with a bit less than average service for the price you pay.

This was a great location for a family birthday. They accommodated our party well.
With special offer pricing it was good value. The décor was very different and worked well.

Food was cold, they could at least have microwaved it! The rice was clearly from the day before. The lamb was also cold, not even a bit warm

We went there for my husbands birthday and the ambience was great. Live music was perfect and the singer even sung a personal song for his birthday and made it very special. The restaurant decor is very traditional feel.

Highly recommend this place

The restaurant was well decorated. We were a large party, but they were not very full. It took a very long time to order drinks and then to order our food. There seemed to be only one person taking orders. The food was good, but VERY spicy. In addition, it took a while to get our food, which didn't help the mood. Overall, this place has potential, but the execution needs some improvements.

What an Aladdin Cave once inside. Very nice interior and food was both excellent and very filling. Only downside was only two of us dining but the waiter said it’s very busy in the evening

Went to eat with a group of 15. There were two members of staff, the more senior member was kind and generally helpful, however our order was taken by a very rude elderly gentleman that seemed to have no understanding of how to properly wait tables. He was extremely pushy and impatient, had no good knowledge of the menu, and smirked when I ordered less than he told me to order. For some reason he wanted me to order everything at once which just doesnt work wih a large group. Overall very dissatisfied and unhappy with what was meant to be a celebratory occasion. Chef was somewhat good as food was generally tasty and well cooked although some kebabs were cold. I could see this restaurant being ok for a small part of 1-4 people but I would advise larger groups to stay away you will have much better service in any cheap indian/pakistani restaurant.
