Local Curry

I have been coming to the Shapla for around five years and have never had a bad meal, either eat in or take away. I visited recently with an a work colleague and had a great meal, the meat samosas are excellent and my Chicken Madras was faultless. The service was good and friendly, the waiters... read more

I've been a customer at Shapla for around... 11/12 years now. I have tried other restaurants but to be honest although they may be good they are never better than Shapla. Mostly get a takeaway from here and in all those years only ever had one bad meal a few years back.. put me off for a little while but... More

We use Shapla as out takeaway curry house. The food is lovely it's got to be the best place around the area for a curry, BUT we alway have an issue with something, went to pick up the food because when they delivered last time the food was cold and they had forgot a curry we had ordered. We phoned... More

I've visited the Shapla in Barnet and this place seems to be the same chain/ franchise, however I felt the food just wasn't as good in here for some reason Food is very reasonably priced and the place was fairly busy, however even being on the hot plate, I felt that my food was warm and not piping hot which...

Went here for the first time with our son, daughter in law and grandchildren for evening meal on Saturday. We received a very hospitable welcome and helped us all to sit comfortably as we had the baby buggy and we needed a high chair. No problem finding a 'parking space' for buggy, but not a good idea if there were... More

How this is not Eastcote's No.1 Restaurant, we don't understand! We have eaten numerous meals over the 2 years we've lived locally, both at the restaurant and as a take away, and it never disappoints. The staff are very attentive and happy to give suggestions, the food is fantastically tasty every time, the ambiance is just right. Worth phoning ahead... More

I've only been here once before but I know it's popular with my kids but mum and dad gave it a try tonight. Nice welcome, asked where we'd like to sit. Simple to read menus, fast drink service whilst making our selections. I had chicken pakora which was delightful but almost enough for a main course! All our food was... More

Went there for a birthday, had a long wait and the food was only warm and the old bloke made us feel uncomfortable as he kept coming to the table. Before we finished he came with a tablecloth we had only been there for one hour. We still had drinks that we ordered and we had already paid which was... More

The place was quite busy so thought this was going to be a hidden gem. Unfortunately the chef has much to do here. The curries we had were very greasy. The menu had a large choice but if all the meals are greasy then this has to be given a miss in the future. Staff were pleasant.
