My partner and I had a lovely meal here, the service was fast, the staff were friendly and very courteous. After I managed to trip up a step on the way to my table (so clumsy) our waiter made sure I was ok and reminded me to watch my step on my way out - I'm sure I would've forgotten... More

This is one of our go back to curry houses, we forget sometimes it's there. What we can say is that we were one of the first to go there when its opened and we have gone back year on year since. So in short its standard and quality have held high.

I ordered a takeaway tonight which I was very pleased with. The food was of excellent standard and I think I may have found myself a regular curry house. The food was delivered within 35mins of ordering and was still very hot. I ordered a goa garlic chicken which I would recommend for all you garlic lovers and a lamb... More

Had a family party tonight at Simla. They needed us to be there at 7 - a bit early, but ok for our group. Food was very slow - and only average tonight. Not like they were really busy either. Seems like something had slipped. It's a shame, as this restaurant used to be one of the best in Boldmere.... More

Recently visited with friends as a group of six and all had excellent service and beautiful food. I personally tried one of the combination dishes as being a regular on Trip Advisor could comment on two different dishes and both dishes where excellent and served piping hot and fresh. Well done we will all be back.

One of my favourite modern style Indian restaurants. Food and service both very good but be prepared to wait especially as the restaurant gets busy. Food is presented in a modern style which may not be everyones choice, however the choice on the menu is very wide and there is something to suit all tastes. The staff go out of... More

We went to Simla just before new year, food was ok and the service was good. We asked to be moved tables which they duly obliged but there was a constant draught under the table which was quite unpleasant. On visiting the ladies at the end of our evening it was a complete shock to find it was -2 in... More
