Everything about The Shimla Palace is a real delight - I don't think I have ever met more friendly staff In any restaurant I have ever visited, it is a true delight to be welcomed there which has become a fairly regular event recently. The menu choice is extensive and the food is truly sumptuous and served in surroundings which... More

Ok so you need to drive to get to it (unless you live very close) but the food here is superb, and the menu extensive. The decor is clean, the staff are very friendly and very helpful, and they also stock a decent range of drinks. They deliver too if you fancy a night in without cooking. Great restaurant :-)

They were very busy though, and it was a Saturday night, but no offer of a complimentary beverage was forthcoming to make up for the... More

First thing you will come across is there is very little parking space. Apparently you can park round the back even though all the signs say you can't. Very quaint inside with lots of little rooms as opposed to one big restaurant . Staff are very friendly. I have to agree with other reviewers about the waiting times. However good... More
