Shaheens’s Restaurant was established over 30 years in North Bailey, Durham City.The idea of Shaheen’s Restaurant was borne out of the desire to bring the authentic taste of Indian to Durham City, reminding customers that the real taste of India was not all about the korma and balti one would find at your local takeaway, but about the authenticity of the recipe and the freshness of the ingredients that gives even the most simple curry the taste you would expect to find in a restaurant in India.
