So How Good's The Food?

They offer all the usual dishes we've come to know and love, and will take orders for mild, medium, or hot versions depending on your spice tolerance. For starters, the onion bhajis are very good, being a large and well-spiced variety. The meat dishes are decent, though nothing stands out as particularly exceptional. The dhal here is a very mild, creamy type, which almost seems to have some cream mixed in, contrasting strongly with the fiery spiced version available over at Banjara. Vegetarians will also like the malai kofta, which are excellent here.
We dine in here occasionally, but more often call up for a take-away order. They deliver, and offer free rice with take-away orders, but in our experience they are a bit slow, and it's much faster to go pick up the meal yourself. Oddly, although we prefer Banjara to eat in, we get take-away from Shehnai more often - perhaps because the food stands up better to the plastic container experience.
