Had a takeaway one week ago. It was extremely poor quality...oversweet and not a hint of spices or Herby bits in a Tikka Masala.just a sludge. Won't go there for food again.

This is our second visit and the Indian food served on this boat is really good. The service is excellent and the views are great (We saw herons and other waders from the windows). Definitely worth a visit.

I enjoyed my meal at Shampan. The food was very tasty. But the decor is tired with lots of obvious repairs needed. The staff were very busy and lacked attention to the customer. The location is fantastic. And being on a tilting boat was fun....More

Very good curry served in a boat! Would recommend for an evening meal. The food is delicious and well priced. The restaurant itself is quaint - in a boat, slightly sloping floors and dinner candles on each table. A nice atmosphere!
