A Sunday evening

We were a party of 12 visiting this restaurant on Sunday, 12th July, to celebrate a 21st birthday. It was my third visit here, and the last two times we were very impressed, but on this occasion we were extremely disappointed, bearing in mind there were only a few other diners sitting at other... read more

Very disappointing, suppose the only pleasant thing about this restaurant is the decor. Food was bland, tasteless, oily, rice was cold, nan bread cold and tough as leather. This was once one of our favourite Indian restaurants but has seriously gone down hill. Avoid this like the plague.

Visited Sunday night with ten work colleagues. It was quiet, only another small group and a couple. We, however, then waited just over an hour for our starters, while watching takeaway order after order being taken for delivery. Food when it arrived was good & plentiful, both starter & main course. I wonder about the drinks of Coke - four... More

I'm not sure why this restaurant is getting knocked by so many negative reviews. This is one of the best experiences and food I have had in a long time. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and the staffs were very friendly. Having arrived late for our booked time, our waiter without any commotion swiftly sat our large group down.... More

Enjoyed my meal at Shiplu last night with five other diners. Very generous portions ; 4 large onion bargee for one as a starter for example combined with efficient and courteous service made for a very pleasant evening . Best to drink bottled Cobra rather than the Kingfisher on tap which was rather bland tasting we all agreed. General agreement... More

I used to use the Shiplu regularly and was always really happy with the quality & taste, but was extremely disappointed with a take away I had last week. I have twice emailed the restaurant via their website before posting this review to discuss my concerns first, but have had no response.... so here I am! Unfortunately I have to... More
