The Shanaz Restaurant is an Indian curry house in the heart of Truro that has been serving communities around Cornwall with renowned Indian dishes for over 25 years.
The restaurant was started by 4 brothers. They were enthusiastic and determined to make it work. With many years of experience between them in the restaurant trade, they decided it was time to make their mark on the ever-growing curry industry. Now nestled amongst the foliage of Victoria Gardens and the overarching spires of Truro Cathedral, you will find their restaurant situated in a beautiful Georgian building. Their first building was in a back alley of River Street in 1995, with the Royal Cornwall Museum barely visible from the cornered-off restaurant. Seating only 30 people, this modest premises was where the journey began for The Shanaz. Long evenings were spent working those floors and serving early evening patrons to the late-night revelers, making fond memories with new friends.
However, as they started to establish themselves in Truro, their customer base began to grow. In 2000, they were able to find their current and more prominent location on Edward Street. After a lot of work to restore the building, they were finally able to continue their journey.
This new restaurant seated double the amount of people and as they picked up from where they left off, more and more guests started to come through those doors.
The Shanaz hold our clientele close. Whether you are a regular and have been coming for years or are simply interested in trying out a new Indian restaurant in Truro, they will take every guest on a journey with their dishes.
