I used to come here a lot when I was younger and recently moved back into the area, and it used to be amazing, We ordered a takeaway and it was so sugary and oily I don't know if the chef ha decided to sell out by catering to fatty English tastes like other Indian restaurants but it was such... read more

Me and my girlfriend decided to go for a romantic meal to Shiplu. The restaurant looking great from outside but inside is filthy (carpet, toilets, artificial flowers etc...). This place needs serious update. Staff is ok ( well, maybe except of few miserable men that they don't look very happy to be there ). Now food - overpriced for quality... More

Thought we'd give it a try as we have heard others give good compliments. However we did not enjoy this at all. Expensive and 'chewy' meat.

This is my local indian and have eaten here many times over the years. The food is amazing and far better than any other indian restraunts nearby or further afield. The service is always very friendly and quick. The interior of the restraunt provides a very authentic experience with seating laid out so everyone has enough space and privacy to... More

Visiting family in Bexhill for Christmas from Florida and really fancied an Indian curry - the Shiplu was recommended by my brother. We decided to eat as a takeaway rather than in the restaurant. The food was fantastic. We ordered several curries, naan, sag aloo and recieved poppadums, onion salad and tomato chutney for free. Will definitely eat from here... More
