Went for a family meal, ordered my usual chicken tikha donner. Had kids with me so ordered the chicken donner for them, as it is not as spicy as the tikha donner. Kids did not eat much, clearly they were not liking the taste, so I thought I would finish of theirs! First bite it was awful! No taste at... More

Came here once after having the chicken dinner recommended to me. Some of the staff were nice but others were extremely rude and ordering us about telling us to wait outside almost shouting. Portion was very small and only just enough, and despite not being spicy caused stomach issues the following day.

Third visit at this restaurant. We had to wait nearly an hour for our food. Last time it was same. I can understand Friday is usually busier than other night. But when the food arrived it was disappointing after waiting for an hour. Lamb chop and sheek kebeb was cold. Salad was dry. I ordered lamb chilli masala. Last time... More

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
