Established over 30 years and located in the historic North Bailey of Durham, Shaheen’s is open 5pm until late. Booking is always advised to avoid disappointment. We look forward to seeing you soon!

The Ingredients of our Success can be Found in our Food

Since then, the restaurant has gone from strength to strength, building an amazing reputation both locally and further around the region, enabling us to keep to the values on which it was established, whilst ensuring the interior a pristine dining experience.

We consider all of our clients the most important people to us and we have had the pleasure to serve our delicious, authentic Indian food to a vast range of international clients, including Russell Crowe on a recent trip to Durham..

The Real Taste of India

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..

It’s my 2nd time going but the staff remembered me, they’re so friendly and welcoming. Onion bhajji's are a must if you go. The owner always makes sure everyone is happy, the night I went there was a party of 25 (I would suggest booking because it fills up fast ) but the owner handled everything and it wasn't overwhelming so we had a great night not feeling rushed at all. Highly recommend, definitely going again. (Nov. '21)
