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

Ate here in July 2014 and on a return visit last week I had another superb curry. Nothing ornate or pretentious about this restaurant; there are plenty of fancier and more expensive curry restaurants within a couple of minutes in both directions where you can enjoy elaborate menu cards, superficial service and where they will happily relieve you of Top...

Called in during a visit to the university after graduating from there 38 years ago. Relieved to see that the Shimla was still there. Food and service were excellent. Make sure you go with an appetite as portions are huge.
