The best chicken donner youll ever have! Fact! Never had any complaints. I live quite close by and the place is hustling and bustling which is always a good sign. Nice and clean with quality service. A must try if you havent already.

This review is for the up-stairs section as it was the first time we have sat there since the renovation. Firstly, let me say, we have been going to Shimlas for probably longer than it was called Shimlas! starting from my University days (mid-90's) and it never disappoints - upstairs and downstairs. The food is spot on and the seekh... 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.

If your visiting this place you have got to try the amazing lamb chops, i've tried lamb cops everywhere i go but these cannot be beaten.
