Shaha never disappoints. The service is very old fashioned, the servers ask the man for the drinks order & always give the man the bill (I quite like this). The food here is beautiful, and I always suggest we go here for ‘date night’ whenever...More

We have eaten here several times before as I’m originally from Carlisle and all ways came away happy. However our recent visit was shocking! The staff were unfriendly the sauces watery and the vegetables frozen ! We will not be returning in a hurry.

This has got to be one of my favorite places to get a takeaway from. The food is always amazing and we always enjoy it. I have also eaten in the restaurant a number of times, and have no complaints.

My partner & i were out celebrating her birthday, decided to get food. Too be fair they accomodated no problem. Food was really good, but the service was really poor! Would probably get takeaway from here, but would not sit in again.

Murad and the team did a brilliant job last night. My 11 year old daughter absolutely loves curry and the quote above is from her last night. Praise indeed! We highly recommend the Korai - very very tasty. Shaha is a Carlisle institution, 40 years...More

We visited Shaha on Saturday evening, can’t really fault the food but won’t be back due to the service. Their system of service seemed very dated and ultimately let them down. Each individual staff member appeared to have a single role and were not to...More
