Very nice food and service in the restaurant, this place is my favourite Indian. However, if you order a takeaway from here be prepared to wait a VERY long time. I appreciate that they get extreamly busy but when you are told 40 minutes for your order and in fact it turns out to be a hour and a... read more

This was the first time that I had tried this Indian Restaurant for many years, as it was recommended by a friend, and must say I wasn't disappointed. The Restuarant doesn't look too big from the outside but when you go in it really opens out into a large Restuarant. The decor is bright and colourful, the service is very... More

The service was prompt and friendly. The food was excellent and my guests all enjoyed their meals. I love a good curry and would happily eat here again.

I Had a Pashwari Naan and a pilau rice. The naan, this was very greasy and you could almost see the grease... More

The Shiplu is our go to place when we fancy a big slap up curry. The food is always top notch and service friendly and efficient. We often drive over from Eastbourne to visit Shiplu. There is lots of choice on the menu, the prices are reasonable and portion size plentiful. Yes the decoration may be a bit dated but... More

The Shiplu has a reputation as a fine restaurant locally, and it is certainly busy at most times. The atmosphere is good and the staff friendly. There is an extensive menu catering for most palettes/pain thresholds which is slightly on the expensive side. If you are a fan of Indian food, then you are unlikely to be disappointed but is...

We had been told that the Shiplu is a good place for a meal, so we went along there on a Thursday evening. We waited to be seated at a table, which was very nice and our drinks order was taken. The drinks were great. So far so good. We ordered our food and after an average amount of time... More

Chicken tikka starter was moist, tasty and plenty of it, chicken dansak was so tasty and perfectly spiced, a mate had mushroom omelette, it looked exactly how it should and he said it tasted very nice, which often is not the case in Indian restaurants. Definitely will be back again, very good food and service

Big yummy portions, loads of chicken in each meal. Food served promptly, relaxing atmosphere, such lovely tasty dishes. Staff polite. Really enjoyed our evening here with family. I come here every time we have a celebration as it's the best in whole area. 5*
