5 of us went on the hunt for somewhere to eat late on Friday (10pm-ish). Had heard mixed reviews from people but decided to go for it anyway. Good choice, we enjoyed excellent service and food. You do pay for it perhaps but it's worth treating yourself.

Me n my friends went there last week to had a meal when we were returning from London on train. It is in good location but the food was not good as we have tried in other restaurants in Leicester. We can get far better food in such a price. I don't blame them telling not good but I won't... More

Overall its probably one of the better indian resurants in Lecicester, but being leicester the standards are high anyway. Staff were attentive and helpful but the food was very average for the price. For the price, you expect better food!

Came up to Leicester for a few days cricket and stayed at The Belmont Hotel, we really fancied a curry and asked the receptionist to recommend somewhere. There were two within a very short walk and Shimla’s looked the best option. The service was very friendly and when I asked for a Lamb curry the waiter simply said leave it... More

Been to Shimla Pinks a few times before and rated it as poor but the lunch buffet is absolutely amazing! Not only is it value for money but tasty. Paid £7.95 and there was a big selection of chutney sauce salad and papadoms, then 2 veg and non veg starters, 3 veg and non veg mains and a really nice... More

We had a groupon for this restaurant so went in no real expectations – and left seriously impressed. We had to do an early sitting for the groupon (5:30) which meant we were the only people there for a little while, but as we were with a couple of friends it didn't really matter. The servers were really friendly and... More

Very nice place, very friendly and helpful staff, and the portion sizes were huge. The food seemed very authentic, compared to the Indian food I am used to, so a little spicy for me.

Visited the restaurant whilst staying in Leicester on Business. Perhaps the place has a slightly more sophisticated atmosphere than some Indian restaurants which made a change but it was also very efficiently run. Food was good standard Indian Fayre but well presented and tasty. Looking forward to my next visit.
