Its been a year since I last reviewed the Shiplu. Probably had 15-20 takeaways and 3 or 4 sit down meals there this year. Consistently amazing food. The staff are very friendly, and welcoming, which really makes all the difference. I see there are a number of negative reviews on here..... most of which relate to one unfortunate night... last...

Everyone said 'you've never been to the Shiplu?' So we went as a group of four mature adults. The restaurant was nearly empty at the time and we were shown into a small booth with a table for 4 and a table for 2. The table was small, hardly room to manoeuvre, the waiter was very brusque to the point... More

We visited on Saturday evening having previously been many times before and thoroughly enjoyed it. This time was completely different and it didn't seem like the same restaurant at all.None of the usual staff were there; those staff that were there seemed disorganised, unwelcoming, disinterested and vague. Food was slammed down, the service was rushed and perfunctory at best. On... More

Outstanding food, as always, although I've not been for at least a year. Good service, if not slightly over-eager! They did repeatedly interrupt our conversation to take single glasses away etc. The best chicken tikka, onion bhajis and naan bread in town.

Booked this restaurant in advance as we wanted to come here on a Saturday night. ( would advise this as it's very busy!) Our table of ten for my friends baby shower was beautifully presented. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our seats, our waiter took our order for our drinks and left the menus with us. Several of... More

I ordered a takeaway from the shiplu with my boyfriend one evening for what I though was going to be an easy dinner. We hardly ever order take outs, so this was a particular luxury. Once phoning to place our order, we were told that our food would take a maximum of half an hour to be delivered to my... More

We have been to the Shiplu before and were not that impressed. Went again after years, on a qui t Mondaynight and as well as the meal, the service and the bill were excellent. Will definitively go again! Much better than their overrated opposite 'neighbour' the Chilli Tree.
