Visited with some friends from out of town. The service was friendly and quick taking time with each table. The food is excellent and brought to the table piping hot and in balti dishes. One of the best curries in Cheltenham.

Food is fresh and tasty. Been several times and always good. Authentic food. Suggest booking as always busy! But we always get a table. Quiet restaurants usually say something! Getting drinks was slow.

What's the hottest curry served at Shezan, and just how hot is it? I'm hoping you have something similar to the Chicken Naga served at Zam Zam's in Malvern, which uses naga paste.
