What a sham! Shapla has been a favourite for years. Not sure what has happened, maybe a new chef? Food is just not what it used to be. Didn't feel as fresh as it should and even a little cold... Staff absolutely super but I was there for the grub not the friendly banter...

Went here recently with my partner, the service was good and there was a very quick service once ordered, no problems there. The starter was pleasant but not a lot of flavour, it was soup. The main courses resembled something from a tin, my partner had a fish masala, which looked like a large fish finger that had curry sauce... More

The service was very good, professional and the waiters were very friendly. It was very busy which is a good sign. The food was served timely and was hot. The food was enjoyable but I wouldn't say it was anything special or outstanding. It could have been any Indian restaurant. There were 6 of us and it cost £55 per... More

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.
