Excellent food as always!

We have been coming to the Shapla for years and the food is just as excellent as it has ever been. The service is attentive and polite and the curries are incredible. I must also add the chicken tikka is exquisite. I've been to a lot of curry houses in Sheffield but Shapla is by far the best... read more

Had a superb meal here. Service was friendly and excellent, complimentary poppadoms and good pickles, interesting menu. We had a Jalfreizi which was on the hot side but delicious and a well rounded Bhuna chicken, after very tasty selection of Tandoori starters. With a pint each, under £20 a head which I was happy with for a first class meal.... More

Booked in for an after work Christmas get together with work friends and had a very nice meal. Pleasant helpful and attentive staff, good quality of food at reasonable price, recommend to anyone who is in the area and looking for a good Indian meal.

We were a company of nine guys heading for the football game Sheffield U against Notts Co. Everybody was hungry, and they arranged us a table quite fast. The food was OK (most of us had the the Chicken Tikka Masala & Naan bread), the service was fast, but I got the feeling something was missing. If it was possible,... More

Visited late on a Thursday evening so the restaurant was quiet. Hadn't read any reviews previously so we were unsure what the food would be like. We were not disappointed! Meat was beautiful, and portions were good. Rice & Naan breads couldn't be faulted. Service was excellent. So nice to eat in an authentic Indian Restaurant where the food is... More

Visited this restaurant with my husband last night. Indian food is our favourite, the spicier the better for us. We loved everything about this place. The restaurant has a lovely ambience, it feels very comfortable. The tables are placed in such a way that you feel secluded and private. The service was perfect, friendly and knowledgeable about the food. The... More

Staying for one night in Sheffield Shapla was recommended to us. It was well worth the trip. Fantastic food. Tasted fresh. Great flavours. Service was excellent. Really enjoyed our meal.

Atmosphere and service fine, attentive and friendly. Unfortunately the food is not what I would call good Indian food but a sort of sainsburie substitute. We have been going to Shaplas for about 10 years and I feel that the food has gradually deteriorated during this period. Sorry Shapla but you need to get yourselves a new Chef.

I work all over the country and have tried many Indian restaurants wherever I have been and this is the best. Food is amazing and reasonably priced and all the staff are friendly. You will not be disappointed with this place!
