The Portions!

Excellent restaurant: great decor, good ambiance, staff friendly without being intrusive. The food is excellent: well prepared, very tasty, But the portions - my word the portions. They're huge!

My husband and I got this restaurant off the internet reviews. Sounded great so thought we'd try it. It was fabulous. We had a delicious set meal for two, and every course was perfect. The staff were attentive and the atmosphere of the restaurant was very pleasant. It's a pity we probably wont be near Sheffield again so wont be... More

My husband and I where up in Sheffield overnight and looked for a restaurant on TripAdvisor, we went to The Shapla ,the starters were lovely so we couldn't wait for our main course. When mine chicken tikka arrived I was shocked it had tomatoes and big pieces of egg and the chicken was definitely not tikka. The manager came over... More

we have been a few times to Shapla and each time the service is faultless, the curries are absolutely excellent. the staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. there is no rush, we requested extra time between courses and there was no problem at all.
