Ok. Was Expecting Better

Nice decor but felt crowded. Too much hustle bustle and found it hard to relax. Food was ok. Was expecting better. The meat and Chicken karahi was lovely but prawns lacked any taste. Overall an average experience.

Attended the intouch foundation charity meeting and I've got to say considering it was a busy Saturday night, we had the best service. Food was perfect and the service was spot on! Thank you for the hospitality and I would definitely recommend Shimlas for any future events 😊
