Amazing

I'm currently sitting in Simla. Ive taken a pause as I'm full of delicious food. Staff are friendly and accommodating and down to earth. The venue looks great, which is no surprise as its Boldmere.

The Simla management allocated the whole ground floor to the party and helped by joining in to the celebration by with putting up the decorations provided.

This Restaurant sits in a row of other Indian/Bangladeshi establishments that are all very good - so competition is fierce! That said, it was a Saturday evening and whilst we didn't book, we were fortunate to get in as it filled to capacity about 20mins after we sat down. I'm gonna keep this short - great food with some very... More

I have stopped in Birmingham for 5 days. Convinced myself to try something new, so I went to Simla. What a unforgettable surprise I had. Food is absolutely amazing, I can say exactly the same about the service - nice and polite. I highly recommend Simla for everyone who's looking for a place to eat tasty with the nice environment...

Used to live in boldmere and regularly visited with work, friends and boyfriend! If we didn't have our weekly pop in we would order take out. Living in sutton you aren't short of curry houses but this is by far the best and the staff are lovely!

Hmm. Not bad but my mixed veg Korma was not the best too tangy I prefer a creamy/coconut flavour. Perhaps this is a variation due to regional differences for food but it didn't work for me. The mixed veg wasn't great either, too much potato and I'd have preferred cauliflower and broccoli. My partner enjoyed his but believed it to... More

I eat here every few months and normally go with a crowd. Very high standard and consistency. I always have the garlic northern Indian chilli. Wicked . Deserves its high rating.

We arrived without a booking on a Saturday night for two and they had a table! The restaurant was busy, which is a good sign and created a good atmosphere! The food was good and the service was great. But the best thing was the value. It is bring your own booze, which is a change as I am from... More
