"We stopped in for lunch and had a fantastic meal - attentive service and delicious food. Locally owned and very friendly!"
Review by LMS of Desborough, Northamptonshire (21 July 2012)
"It's the best Indian
in a radius of 15 to 20 miles. So even though we live 6 miles away I don't mind travelling into Harborough to the Shagorika!
They provide consistently good food, unlike the other restauarants we have tried. Alright, they are a little more expensive, but the extra you pay is absolutely
well worth it! I wouldn't go anywhere else."
Review by Mike J. of Cape Town, South Africa (18 July 2012)
"Now living in South Africa - returning after 12 months - the food is still the best! Particularly the Al Amin and Mushroom bhajee"

I think it's the best in Market Harborough, without a doubt! I've eaten elsewhere but in the Shagorika there
is something about the food, something extra to be loved. If we want to treat ourselves (it costs a little more) the Shagorika is where we come.
Interestingly, I've travelled and stayed in India 6 times, once for 6 months, and have eaten in various restuarants throughout that Country,
and whilst each Region has its own particular style I find that the Shagorika appeals to my taste more than anywhere else.
Review by Visitor from the Island of Fiji (4 July 2011)
I visit England every year and each time I always visit your restaurant. The food is just
incredible! Its better each time we come. This is my special treat which I look forward to each year!
See you next year!
Review by Lindsey (14 February 2011)
We tried a few restaurants in Market Harborough, but ever since we tried Shagorika,
we have stopped going anywhere. It was so good, the food tastes great and the service is very attentive.
They like to give the ladies of the party a red carnation as they leave, which is a nice touch.
I sometimes have a large collection of carnations on the window sill. It is definitely the best
Indian restaurant we have ever been to, and better than a lot of the other generic restaurants
in the area. I can't recommend it enough.

I couldn't live without the Shagorika restaurant.
The best Indian food I have ever tasted. I am going for one, tonight in fact. Try it sometime.
Review by Ick (27 February 2010)
We've been going to the Shagorika for more than 20 years. We rate the food as being superb.
Over the past thirty years, either through business travel or through holidays, we've visited
Indian restaurants throughout the UK. Two in Scotland, one in Glasgow and one in
Chepstow South Wales have come close to being as good as the Shagorika but not quite as
good - either the texture of the food or the taste has let them down. The Shagorika is truly
the best in taste and in texture.

I eat at and have takeaways from the Shagorika regularly, and have reviewed the restaurant before,
but the food and service at a recent family party for ten of us was so good that I'm compelled to
post another review. We set a budget in advance and left the choice of dishes to the restaurant - and
it was all just superb. We enjoyed an excellent selection of mild to spicy dishes, including meats and
vegetables, rices and breads, with discreet but friendly service and most of all they really made us
feel welcome. Really can't fault it - many thanks to all the staff.

I was recently invited out to this restaurant by a friend, and looked it up on the internet first to
get the address. If I had read the reviews before the booking I would never had gone. I don't normally
eat Indian food but found the restaurant to be extremely friendly, the staff were courteous, very
helpful - making recommendations which they felt I would like and the food was piping hot and very tasty.
We had hot towels given to us afterwards and the atmosphere was very friendly but still allowed us privacy.
I would highly recommend it.
Review by Matt (24 April 2008)
We've eaten at Shagorika many times over the past couple of years since we relocated to a village
near Market Harborough. This medium sized restaurant is in the old school style of Indian venues with
cozy booths and fancy wallpaper rather than in the contemporary, minimalist decor style, which all new
places tend to employ.
The menu states this is a family run restaurant and the staff are certainly all very friendly. One waiter
even popped over to say hello when he recognised us shopping nearby one afternoon.
The food is very good there......easily the best in Harborough and
good value for money. There are several unique dishes here worth exploring, the chicken kabilla is a personal
favourite and the chasni is something a bit different on the milder end of the spectrum. Of course, all the
old favourites are available too. There are Indian lagers available on draft and bottled and the takeaway
service has always been spot on when we've tried it. Highly recommended!
Review by John (14 April 2008)
This is a basic takeaway and sit-down Indian restaurant. Saturdays are curry nights and our family prefers
eating there. The food is above average with a good selection of the usual, plus not-so-usual curries and
specialities. The friendly staff remember your face as well as your name and this makes a difference.
Review by Martyn Drage (21 March 2006)
Although we live 12 miles away, and there are seven or more Indian restaurants nearer to us, we seem to be
drawn back to the Shagorika. Maybe it's the friendly staff, maybe the comfortable atmosphere, but I believe
it to be the lure of the lovely dishes and the always tender chicken there. Well worth the few extra miles.
