Having visited Shimlas on several occasions I have come to understand one thing. Not much has changed. The service was quite poor with waiters quite confused especially when it got abit busy. As for the food, sadly that has not changed with their bestseller chicken donner becoming a much smaller portion and bland with a pinch of salad and sauces.... More

I am a regular at Shimlas and their grilled starters are fantastic. The grilled fish is the best I have had. Kebabs are also lovely. The lamb chops are a bit too chewy for me but still nice. They certainly specialise in BBQ and grilled meats. Nan bread is also lovely, fresh, soft and tasty. Their curries are good, spicy... More

Went to stay with cousins in Bradford and really fancied a chicken doner. Most of these takeaways put spices on so i specified that i wanted without. I got exactly what i ordered and it was delicious. Beautifully soft naan and lovely chicken

Like always, this place always satisfies my demands. From the very kind receptionist to the brilliant staff, Shimlas is a place where you'd love to spend your money again and again. The chicken donner is amazing and the lamb chops... God aren't they mouthwatering! Overall, a beautiful place to spend night with kids or family.

This place is just fantastic and the specialy Chicken Donner, if you haven't tried the lamb chops you should they are juicy, succulent and tender. All in all a great dinning experience, great staff friendly and nice decor. Overly recommend from a food lover. Enjoy.
