Some of the finest Indian food in the area - the guys who run the place are great - always welcoming, pleasant and very customer focused. The food is brilliant - very good portions and always cooked to perfection & at the right price. I have been using the Shimla for quite some time now and they never fail to... More

We booked last minute to go here in a Sunday night. Lovely meal, very tasty and well sized portions. We used our taste card to get Two for one on the main course. Lovely meal and great service. Well worth a visit.

Our fave Indian by miles. Staff are friendly and courteous. Nothing too much trouble. Prices are average for Indian restaurants but they also accept Tastecard so meals can be 2 for 1 at stated times

You won't find lovelier staff! Great food, great service whether eating in or taking out. Try any of the fish dishes and you won't be disappointed. Weekends get busy so best to book. Never had a bad or indifferent meal. Always first class and highly recommended.

Husband decided for Father's Day he wanted curry, so we booked in at the Shimla. As always they were very busy, but the staff are lovely and friendly and you are always made to feel welcome. We didn't have starters, but we do partake in poppadums whilst perusing the menu. Our order was taken by a pleasant guy, who repeated... More

I've visited this place with my daughter and partner for the first time and I must say overall it's been an amazing experience. I like the look of the Tudor house building and the atmosphere, it just makes you feel nice and cosy. We were treated so special seeing as it's our the first time and we are not even... More

It's been a long time since I visited one of my fave places to eat at, they still have the same old cheerful faces and quite a few new faces but thank god the food is still as amazing as before. My parents and kids loved it, they don't just provide good food but have a great service to go... More

Having spent the last couple of years driving past here fairly regularly and always saying "must try it out soon", well we finally did last week & it was excellent. Just wsh we'd visited sooner now. The ambience in there was lovely, plenty of people dinning, but the layout means you still feel you can have your own conversation without... More
