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.

My husband and I are here on a Friday evening and despite it being busy the staff were attentive and the good was delicious. Would highly recommend the Chicken Tikka main and the Chicken Dupiaza

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

We enjoyed our meal at Simla Spice! Even by 7.00pm on a Saturday evening the place was busy - a good sign - but fortunately we had made a reservation. The décor is clean and contemporary with comfortable seating and the restaurant was very spacious - the tables were not crowded together. The staff were efficient and welcoming and the... More

Staff are always welcoming, food is very tasty, wines are a reasonable price. Plenty of buzz. Tried the takeaways but weren't that good.
