We've been eating at Cafe Simla for over 7 years. We've always had great food and wonderful service. The king prawn on puree starter is delicious and the naan bread has to be tasted to be believed! We've tried most curry dishes on the menu and none have ever disappointed. Great for couples or groups, we've had numerous birthday /... More

I have been to this restaurant a number of times with family and it cannot be faulted. There were 4 young children in our party and they are always catered for- high chars available, food warmed up etc. This takes the stress off going out in a large family group. The food is reasonable priced and tasted great, there is... More

I visited this restaurant hoping that it would live up to the positive reviews. I was sadly disappointed. Restaurant I fortunately had booked a table as the restaurant was busy and the atmosphere very lively. But somehow it felt as though I was in a fast food restaurant with the constant shouting of over excited kids and the irritating sound... More

All staff members at Simla take great pride in their work. It’s always very sad to learn a customer has not received the satisfaction they were expecting. Obviously when working to such high standards there will be times when something slips. Factors out of our control such as the noise of happiness on busy weekend nights in the restaurant we... More

I've driven past this place in its unlikely position beside a petrol station on the A5 numerous times and have heard so many rave reviews. My first visit, with my husband and a friend, did not disappoint at all. This is a lovely place. Beautifully decorated and with wonderfully comfy chairs. The staff were endlessly charming and helpful and their... More

Top Quality Food and Service to match. Exceptional choice and highest quality food with very friendly and helpful staff. Care, though, always book in advance if you want to eat after 7pm or after 6pm at weekends as always full on the nights themselves. Very highly recommended restaurant. Great take away food also

Cafe Simla, no doubt is one of the best restaurants in the country. The interior decoration speaks for its self, with excellent choice of colours to set the ambience, the colours flows and takes Indian restaurant to another level and sets high standards for others to follow. The service and team that Cafe Simla has is second to none with... More

Great menu...lots of variety, with a twist. Very good service in this busy place. Lots of parking, but you are best to book. This place is well worth a visit.

Went to Simla Cafe last month and really enjoyed it. The decor is fresh and lively and everywhere liked clean. It was quite busy for a week night. The menu is massive with some really great exotic recipes. They take pride in their food and in its appearance as it's all served on funky new style plates. I hadn't been... More
