They also serve a top notch... More

First off, the staff are genuine, kind and helpful. Have been here a few times over the last 4 years or so. Never had a bad meal or takeaway from them. Food is a fair price and the quality is fantastic. Very much like it here, plus children are welcome and that is apparent in the way that the staff... More

This place is always the only place I will go to for a curry! Top notch food, top notch banter with the lads. Always receive a friendly welcome on arrival. It's like a second home for me!

Our first time to the Shimla palace and were impressed. The welcome on arrival was friendly and was shown to our seats within minutes. The staff were quick to serve and very confident in their approach. The food was fresh, tasty and well presented. We will definitely go back, albeit a good distance from where we live in Codsall.

The menu and food is great. The service is attentive but so slow. We waited over an hour for our main course and cancelled a round of drinks as they didn't arrive until after the food was eaten. However I would recommend it due to the excellent food. Just be prepared to wait.

This is one of my favourite Indian restaurants and for take away food. Lots of choice of fresh cooked Indian dishes and good value. Staff are really friendly and nothing too much trouble.

Guess they only use fresh ingredients here and not use the sauce out of one big pot. We never suffer any after curry taste like you do from some spots. Consistent good tasting curries etc, never disappointed and worth the extra one mile drive to get there.
