Shimlas looks nice from both inside and outside. The service however is hit and miss some of the waiters are polite and helpful however some require lessons on basic mannerism. The food takes on average 20 minutes to come this is quite time consuming however the food is served fresh and tastes good. Would definetly recommend the food however would... More

Went with the family, didn't get past the bearded man at the front door who wouldn't let me take my buggy! I have a set of twins and at 13 months old didn't fancy balancing them on my knees as the plump bearded man at the front desk suggested!! The food isn't worth the terrible customer service, said bearded plump... More

I visited shimlas on 26/08/14. We was greeted by a really friendly brother with a beard who seated us in the upstairs waiting room for families. We were blown away by the high quality decor in the family area. With in few minutes of waiting we was welcomed by another brother with a beard who greeted us with a smile... More

Customer service from this place is terrible, the attitude of the staff is disgusting. If you bother complaining it falls on deaf ears. Your highly over priced chicken donners arnt so great that people should have put up with such bad service. The customers pay and should be given good service. This place has become too big for their boots.... More

We went to Shimla as a couple and had a really great experience. The place itself is spotlessly clean and well decorated/furnished. The staff were young and enthusiastic and very amiable. We had starters of fish pakoras which had beautiful meaty, white fish inside and were VERY tasty and sharmi kebabs that were fresh, hot and spicy. Our mains were... More

Went to shimlas with my mrs, decor was very nice, guy with a beard greeted us as soon as we went in and seated us upstairs in the family section which was nice, more intimate and romantic! Cannot fault the decor in this place from outside to inside, nice atmosphere and nice range of cultures in the restaurant. Only thing... More
