Did their offer night last Tuesday and it was brilliant! One of the best Indian meals we've had. Don't walk past this one, try it!

Saw an offer in the window, £10.95 for one starter, one main, and either a nan or a rice (Tuesday and Wednesday) so we decided to try it on the Tuesday. Wow. Lovely restaurant, friendly, unobtrusive staff, and out of this world food. I decided to try the sweet chilli chicken starter - I was in ecstasy, it was that... More

I visited this Indian restaurant after going to a show and found it to be very pleasant. Our only criticisms were the small amount of chicken in both of the dishes we ordered and the staff didn't check on us after giving us our dishes. It may have been a busy moment which is fine. My partner felt the korma... More

Went for a family meal, really did the job. Service occasionally slow (esp. on drinks) & they'd lost our booking (which was earlier than we'd wanted as they said they were busy so I'd advise booking) but they managed to find us a table & then move us out of the glaring sunlight so, all in all, service was fine....

Simla is a great restaurant which offers a few slightly different dishes which makes the menu that bit different. The quality of food was of a very good standard and portion size was reasonable. Could be a bit spicier but that is me being very picky. Well worth a visit.

As a resident of Torbay, I've tried all of the Indian restaurants in the area (Torquay, Paignton, Teignmouth, Newton Abbot). I tried Simla Spice when it first opened a few years ago and hated the food. For the past 5 years I've been a loyal customer of another Indian Restaurant in Torquay but they seem to have changed staff/chef so... More
