Food is fine, but the waiting staff leave a lot to be desired. Little or no attention to diners, we had to ask for menus! What service we did get was turce and borderline rude, with no please or thank you when paying. Not impressed.

Never in the field of curry enterprises has such deliciously fresh and spicy food been served with such a dereliction of service without a smile.

I'm an Essex ex pat and every time I head home a trip to the Sharod is essential. No other Indian restaurant has measured up in my eyes...I highly recommend the prawn puree & lamb byriani.

First time time we've​ used the Sharod and fancied getting a delivered takeaway. 40 mins later, we're tucking into the best Indian takeaway we've ever had. Great service, great value and cooked to perfection.

Although if you look hard enough you can see the cracks, Sharod has a great character if you like that sort of thing. All of the waiters are dressed smartly and although over the years we've been visiting we had the odd waiter that wasn't...More
