Set across the road from the Playhouse theatre, Shezan is a bright, pleasantly bustling modern curry house. One glance at the row of gleaming Scottish Curry Awards trophies positioned along the bar told us to expect something out of the ordinary – and we weren’t let down. 

We asked our friendly and knowledgeable waiter for recommendations and he was happy to oblige. We settled down with poppadoms, a selection of six tasty pickles and a glass of Kingfisher beer. To begin, we enjoyed tender and aromatic tandoori lamb chops, and perfectly judged vegetable samosas with crispy exteriors and impeccably spiced filling. Our recommended main courses were the succulent Punjabi garlic chicken masala and juicy king prawn karahi. Both dishes displayed excellent depth of flavour and the spices were beautifully balanced. We shared a bowl of special rice and some of Shezan’s famous naan breads, which were huge yet unbelievably light. The Peshwari was a particular highlight, stuffed with almonds, coconut and sultanas. For dessert, we cooled ourselves down with scoops of creamy kulfi and an irresistibly sticky gulab jamun – the perfect finale to a truly superb meal. If you like Indian food, you’re sure to love Shezan.
