I live on the same streeet and recommend this place if you want to avoid the many chain restaurants in the area. When friends visit me they often want to eat here. Some of the reviews here are clearly dubious as the friendliness of the staff and management is what makes this local restaurant stand out. I often just go in alone to pick up a take away and always enjoy a good chat with The Shad staff. I personally like the grills and the dansak dishes.

After a long day on the road, we was in need of something to eat. We was staying near London Bridge Station so wanted somewhere local.
This was a busy little restaurant but managed to seat us almost imediatley. The food was fresh and delicious the menu was great for all tastes and budgets. Drinks including wines and beers available and at reasonable prices especially for London City.

We visited on bank holiday Monday evening, we were a little unsure after reading some reviews but staff were very welcoming and chatty. Service was very good. We had popadoms and pickles, chicken madras, veg madras, chicken bhuna, pilau rice, chilli & cheese naan & cauli bhaji which were all delicious. Highly recommend thanks guys

Dear Nickiwatstan.
Thank you very much for sharing your experience of our restaurant. We are very happy that you found our food and service very good.
We have had four negative reviews in a row. Which we believe is a hate campaign against our restaurant. Tripadvisor has been informed about them.
Once again many thanks and hope to serve you again in the near future.
