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 switched on, the regular guys are very friendly and attentive. The food is 'good'. I've had a lot of Indian food from different places and Sharod is definitely one of the better ones. Even when you finish your dinner, there's no rush to go. There's often 'treats' for the kids and adults which although not specifically charged for on your bill is probably reflected in the price but it's not the most expensive restaurant I've been to.
Ideal for family trips and as a 'regular'.

I frequent Sharod once every couple of months. I travel around Europe extensively for business and therefore I like to keep a list of food hot spots to satisfy my desires whenever they hit! In terms of Indian food, I scouted for a decent establishment for years. Thankfully, a friend recommended Sharod to me - an eloquent little place located in a side street, off the main high street in Barkingside.

The staff are welcoming and friendly. They make you feel at home. In terms of menu pickings, you will find the standard dishes advertised in most Indian establishments in London. However, what separates Sharod from the rest is the taste!! Everything is cooked delightfully, spiced up perfectly whilst not being overbearing to the taste buds. I can't help but stuff my face once the array of dishes land on my table! In terms of specifics, my favourites have to be the Chicken Tikka, Pilou Rice, Sag Aloo & Mushroom Bhagee. The Salmon Tikka is pretty good when they have it in stock.

All in all, a great find. Best Indian food in town. Highly recommended.

We had to ask for menus
We had 3 Waiters unable to say what was in the "special"
We had 4 Waiters coming to take our order but disappearing before we spoke, then one started to write things down
On our 3rd dish he started chatting to another waiter taking orders on another table and ignoring us - we told him it was unprofessional and we were getting annoyed
My madras came out with no spice, just a pale brown gravy. The waiter said it's how they do it there
The bombay aloo were unmarinted potatoes and the saag aloo just boiled spinach. We weren't offered drinks after initially being seated so my friend had no drink throughout
the bill of nearly £50 was dumped down with boxes of malteesers (I went for a decent curry and got chocolates). We put £30 down and walked out. Suddenly the Waiters showed interest and followed us to the car! Claiming my friend was a serial payment cheater. I drove off

I have been using this restaurant for about 28 years and have never been disappointed. Love the food and the staff are friendly and very helpful. Food always cooked the way you want it. In my case extra spicy. If it's not on the menu all you have to do is ask. Had take away from there last night with my daughter and as usual we both loved it.
