1st Takeaway

I have eaten at the Shiplu restaurant before and the food was very good. Tonight I had my first takeaway from them, It was one of the best Indian takeaway meals I've ever had, I can't fault them. Some of the ratings do not apply to takeaway food.

The Shiplu is one of the best curry restaurants in Bexhill. I have eaten in the restaurant in the evening and had many takeaways from there and I can honestly say I have never been disappointed with the food! The restaurant itself has a lovely ambiance and the staff are welcoming and friendly. Food and service excellent!

Having moved back to the town after some years, I am not surprised to see the Shiplu is still the most recommended Indian in the town. Take away is good and dine in is even better. Good sized portions for reasonable money, freshness of the salad is unbelievable. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. 100% worth a visit!

Food was very tasty, good size servings and well presented. Only minor let down was the quality of the coffee and some of the internal decoarations were stained. Overall we would go back simply for... More

My Dad has friends and relatives all around the world and when they visit us in Bexhill the Shiplu is where he takes them. This is because it is our favourite restaurant and we feel proud to have a restaurant of such phenomenal standards in our little town. The service is the best you could imagine, nothing is too much... More
