No customer service skills

I visited shimlas yesterday, I can not complain about the quality of the food! It was absolutely delicious (that's why I have given 3*) but the customer service skills were absolutely rubbish, it was Ramadan so I understand the waiters being a little off, but there was a hair on our naan and they... read more

Food was cold and bland , was given a salad made up of onions . The portion sizes are tiny .. Cost effective for the owners .. Didn't hardly touch my meal as a... More

We visited last night.we placed our order and it took more than 45 minutes only for two curries to come to the table , the guy who was managing the floor, after asking him twice , he couldn't give us any right answer for the food arrival, so disappointing service, they don't really care about the customers. Careless stuff. Actually... More

Having been someone who dined at Shimla's around once a year up until recently, I am now somewhat of a regular. My previous grievances of Shimla's were around the poor service, a point which many allude to on their reviews below. My recent positive experiences have all been on the second floor, where the waiter(s) are exemplary and the notion... More

Our last visit was was awful, we were seated in the tile area we had to ask twice for order to be taken as waiters were too busy chatting. The manager walking around the floor spent more time talking to his waiters then actually send his waiters to take customer orders. When he did find time to ask us how... More

We've been going to Shimlas for many years because the food is good. But recently (last 1-2yrs) we've noticed that they secretly segregate seating based on gender. If you're men, you get to be seated downstairs, but if your party has any women you'll be seated upstairs in the "family section". Upstairs is dark, noisy and cold (aircon). Downstairs is... More

So we've visited this place a couple of times before, the foods always been nice (nothing amazing but nice) and we've always been seated downstairs. Recently everytime we come to bradford and decide on where to eat, every time we drive past shimlas, all we see are gaggles of guys and men. Because we normally come as family or a... More
