Lovely food and great service

I have eaten here every time I've visited Birmingham over the last few years and it's always spot on. Most recently in July, the food and service were at their usual high standards! My only criticism if I had to pick one out would be the layout of the restaurant. It isn't very spacious! Don't... read more

My family and I have been eating at Simla for many years. The food is consistently good, service friendly and atmosphere comfortable . Delicious food whether you eat in the restaurant or have a takeaway..and always served with a smile. Thoroughly recommend it. Keep up the good work guys!

As title says. Good offer on Monday and Tuesday night but a very long time between courses. Approx 40 odd minutes wait between starter and main. Too long I think.

Good value food. There is an evening offer and it's ggod for the price - 2 courses. The exterior of the restaurant, thanks to clever lighting is quite modern and impressive. Interior a little less so, but still comfortable enough. Good service and tasty curries on offer. Well worth the price.

13 of us went to Simla on Tuesday night to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Food was lovely, as always, and service great too. Having tried other local curry houses, Simla still is the best by far in terms of quality and consistency. Really nice atmosphere and don't feel like you are sitting right in top of other diners.

Have been to this restaurants many times with friends. One of the nicest Indian foods you can find in sutton coldfield. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Not being licenced can be s bonus as you can take your own choice of drinks. Would certainly recommend this anytime.

Beautiful food and lots of choice. Beautifully cooked and not rushed. Very fair prices. You can also choose to bring your own drinks, keeping the price low. Our friend needed gluten free and she was knowledgeably advised and accommodated. Would definitely recommend and go again.

Thus restaurant has seating u[stairs and downstairs. Stairs are rather steep and had a bad leg so I had booked a table downstairs. Despite this we were asked to go upstairs but when we explained they quickly rearranged downstairs so that they could accommodate us. Food was good, large portions and reasonable prices. Take your won drink and they have... More

Visited with eleven friends. We all had a great time, the staff were really friend and joined in in with some of the laughs we were enjoying. The food was perfect, all arrived at the same time. I would definitely recommend it. We will be back!
