wow .... A very clean and contemporary restaurant with superb service and mouth watering food. Afterwards I could still taste the spices zipping around my mouth and everything tasted fresh. Defiantly go again.

Monday night in Birmingham, an old friend promised me a fine meal, and drove me away from the delights of Broad Street, to Sutton Coldfield, and to this pleasant restaurant. Great welcome, great service, and great food. I had my favourite Tandoori Prawns with spinach and rice, after a super chicken starter, sorry forget the name, but most delicious. All... More

My husband and I are regulars at Simla as are a lot of our friends. We decided we wanted to spend our 25th Wedding Anniversary at Simla and we weren't short of company as 30 of our family and friends also joined us. As always we were not disappointed; the food was excellent, the service spot on and all of... More

We visited Simla lady not to celebrate my husband's birthday and had a delicious meal and first class service - as always. We've been going to Simla since they opened and have never been disappointed. The staff are friendly, efficient and attentive; the food is always presented attractively and tastes fab. It's always full of regulars so I really don't... More

I would echo many of the recent reviews from experienced reviewers. Poor service from staff who clearly weren't fussed about service, packed in tables and bland food. I note that many of the 5 star reviews even going back a few years are from people who have never posted another review. You pays your money and takes your choice but... More

Visited Simla for a friend birthday about 6 weeks ago, I've been a few times before and you can predict if there's more than 8 of you you'll be shoved in the corner to right as you go in! Tables so close to wall there's no chance of nipping to loo if you need it! Food was ok but service... More

Recommended by friends so decided to give it a try. Restaurant was quiet with plenty of vacant tables but still requested to sit and wait for around 5 minutes before being seated which was rather odd. Food was no more than average and The Simla seem to use lots of red food colouring. The waiter was very inattentive and was... More

Been here on a couple of occasions. Staff are friendly and service is good. What is very average is the food- no matter what I order, the sauce seems to be more or less the same, with just more or less spice added. I'm sure there is just one base pot and anything ordered just a slight amendment of the... More
