We went to Shapla based on the reviews from Tripadvisor and as it was a short walk from the Premier Inn where we were staying. The food was excellent: Popadom sauces were generous and delicious. Starters were very tasty. As main courses, the dhansak was beautifully cooked and spiced perfectly and my wife's korma was succulent and creamy. The peshwari... More

Went to this restaurant on 18th July and the service and starters were good until the mains came waiters were rude and tried to tell us that chicken tikka masala was traditionally made with egg and potatoes in and that a dish that looked and tasted exactly like chicken tikka masala was something entirely different. The manager was rude and... More

We visited the Shapla in early May 2014 after a early Saturday drinking session in Sheffield City Centre and found the service to be excellent. We were offered a table by the window which for me is always good as I can watch the world go by outside. Popadoms and a pickle tray were the starter for us follwed by... More

The service was excellent and attentive, we had onion bahji's to start with and pappadoms I had Chicken Pathea (don't... More

We eat here all the time, this restaurant is warm friendly and inviting, the service is professional providing the best quality authentic food. I would recommend anything on their menu, but I particularly love their king prawn madras. My other half enjoys their shapla special jalfrezi. In all the time I have been coming here I have never had a... More

Genuine Indian food, not too fat (which is, alas, the norm in the UK), and prepared with care and a sense of harmony. The spice composition is subtle and interesting, the quality of the food among the best Indian we've had in the UK. The service is very good and the atmosphere really nice. Definitely, to be recommended!
