whenever we tend to go for a meal in the car we end up at place, excellent dinners,sumptuous and tasty,though the seating space is bit tight and the order place is also not well organised but in the end it's the food that matters which I must say is always above par excellence.

Clueless staff. Horrible food. Why is this place even open. Owner is so arrogant doesn't even Loonat you when he takes money off u. Don't go to this place. So many better places in Bradford. It was empty on Saturday evening so I understand why people avoid this place

Upon entering shimlas we were not welcomed. After a long 5 minutes wait the manager came and gave us a table and we placed our order, without even completing our order the manager rushed off. We ordered an extra naan and it was extremely cold and we had to ask to change it. The food was average but the service... More

Went here on the way home after an exam, simple but freshly cooked meal of chicken tikka donner. Very reasonable and large portion, salads etc for just over £5. Really didn't want anything to drink apart from water which was readily brought, The restaurant was nicely full on a dreary thursday pm so would suggest very popular and 2 mins... More

OK it's not posh like Mumtaz and the loos are a bit basic but the food is tremendous! It does take a while to get served but it's worth waiting for. I would go again if I wanted a good Indian food experience and could mange without Cobra! But I wouldn't go if it was a birthday as its non... More

First and last time. Certainly won't be returning. Food was terrible from the poor starters to the even worse tasteless mains. Service was just about terrible. Whole experience felt like being on a production line, with zero atmosphere and zero effort to create dining experience. All that aside, the food quality was same as my local roti junction takeaway that... More

I'd heard about this from friends, so decided to give it a try as I was in the area. It was open surprisingly late 11:30 pm and was busy (always a good sign). The service was good and the waiter was friendly and very helpful, making some good recommendations from the Menu. The lamb chops and Seekh Kebabs were very... More
