First visit to the shimla palace and from the outside I was impressed by the old building. Staff were very pleasant and there was a warm welcome as you enter. Food was ok. I had naga chicken which was not as hot as I had expected so we had some phal sauce to heat it up to naga strength. Quantity... More

Another excellent take away from The Shimla. If you live close enough it is best to collect rather than wait for delivery, it's quicker and you can have a pint. We had Chicken Korma and Chicken Tikka Shishlak and they were wonderful. The staff are always friendly and happy to help.

6 of us had a meal here last night. I had booked the table for 7pm as none of us like to eat late. Drinks were ordered but didn't arrive so the waiter had to be reminded when he came to take our food order. We didn't get our main meal until well after 8.30 (poppadums were consumed an hour... More

23 of us went last night. Welcomed at the door by well presented young man. They had laid out a private room with banners etc, we had pre booked the week before. They did separate bills as requested. The food was hot and mainly all done together, we all had different main courses so quite a challenge. The staff were... More

Been to this restaurant a few times so about time I left a review. Never had a bad meal here but the latest curry was off the scale. Top drawer! Friendly and professional service.

The staff here are very friendly, and the service is excellent!! We had a lovely time and enjoyed the food and overall experience, yet personally I wouldn't go again because I have had nicer Indian food before at other places I've been.
