This has to be the best Indian Restaurant in outer London. It has been our no 1 choice since the 1980 when we first moved to Eascote Its our first port of call when we come back to the U.K. The family have always made you feel very comfortable . Cannot wait for our next return visit

Been coming to this restaurant for years and years. The reason why? It's always good. Family run business which has a high quality of service and attention to detail. Best tandoori for miles around.

Around three decades ago, I was waiting for a bus at the stop opposite the Shapla in Eastcote. Friends who were dining saw me and invited me out of the cold and rain. The wecome I received that first night from the Proprietor has remained as warm ever since. Over the years the food (both dining in and takeaway) has... More

Visited the Shapla after hearing good reviews but was very disappointed. Service was a joke, when we asked for another drink was told they had stopped serving. Got the hint because we was the last in restaurant they just wanted to get rid of us, wouldn't mind but it was only 10pm! Not our fault they weren't busy. I will... More

This is my family's go to place for a delicious and reasonably priced Indian meal. The staff are great and the service is incredibly quick. I would say that this is probably one of the best Indian restaurant's in London. The tandoori lamb shank just has to be tried to be believed.

This has always been one of my favourite Indian Restaurants and the food has always been faultless. Our starters a Chicken Chat Puree and Chilli Paneer were delicious. My dinner, a chicken tikka masala was perfect as always. However, my husband ordered a Chicken Bhuna, which is normally a very tasty dish in a thick sauce. On this occasion, the... More

We consider our selves lucky that The Shapla is near where we live. I've never had a bad meal there and the service is always exemplary. I have dined in Indian restaurants all over the world including India and I'm yet to find a restaurant that serves up food as tasty as The Shapla.

Personally, I believe this is the best indian restaurant in north west London. My family and I have been having takeaways and eating in for over 20 years now and the food is consistantly fantastic. My family has a range of dishes but the korma is the best I have ever tasted. The staff are always polite and thankful for... More

Visited this evening with two friends, was hurried through our meal and because they thought we'd had a drink our 'butter chicken' was actually tikka Marsala with a knob of butter on top! When queried one of the waiters admitted this but refused to rectify the situation and then they tried to overcharge us by nearly £20!! The food is... More
