Visited this curry house with 2 friends that live locally and use it often for 'curry' nights out. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was very busy, though we had booked ahead and our table was ready when we arrived at 8pm. The décor is not like your usual curry house and felt more liek a cross between... More

Our table wasn't ready at reserved time, waited in the crowded, busy 'bar' area. Seemed that take-away orders were taking priority over diners. When we eventually got to eat, food was very good - nicely presented and generous portions. Rating of five is for the food. This restaurant is excellent, but pre-dining experience needs to be sorted out.

After 4 years of loyalty to the Simla I have had one too many inconsistent takeaways. I have had exactly the same dish for 4 years and when it's good...its awesome. Unfortunately the inconsistencies are wearing a bit thin now. Usually they don't question when I inform them it wasn't up to standard and replace it. When I say that... More

Whilst we have a new preferred takeaway, we still need a place to go if we want to sit in, and that place is Simla. The staff there are a little lacking in conversation but the food is still great and still cooked just how we like it when asked. Sure poppadoms and dips aren't cheap, but they rarely are... More

This restaurant is located in an old house. The menu is extensive. The food came warm and well presented. It could have been a bit more tasty and spicy. The service was good and attentive. The meal was excellent value for money.

For me this is the go to Indian restaurant in Hinckley. The food, the service, the atmosphere, and the price are all just amazing. When walking in, if there are no tables available you are seated in the bar area with a bowl of Bombay mix, and once a table is available you are then led through to the dining... More
