Lovely meal

The two of us had a nice meal with friendly staff. The BYOB helps make it very affordable. Shall be back.

Open and airy lots of choice on menu. Attentive and speedy service. The nan breads are something else. Portions are good size we shared a curry and there was plenty after a filling starter platter.Take your own booze no corkage charged - soft drinks to buy help make this a very reasonable night out.

I occasionally stay in Shipley for work and this was the second time I've visited, midweek. Both times the food has been really tasty but not over-salted or packed with unnecessary colourings and ingredients- like it is home cooked by someone who knows their stuff. The service is really good too - friendly, professional and prompt. This time I ordered... More

First time at this restaurant and I must say I was most impressed. Décor is a tad on the blingy side but very clean and fresh nonetheless. Arrived on time and was seated promptly by very friendly staff who made a fuss of our three year old granddaughter all night. Poppadoms arrived as soon as we were seated and the... More

A group of us visit the Marriott for golf but like to get out for food We tried Shimla Spice this time & were not disappointed. As a party of 12 we were easily accommodated, bring your own drinks policy (alcoholic), good menu selection, decent price, great quality food. Service was very good, although the staff can appear impatient -... More

We've been a few times now. The food has been good, but when visiting with a group (9) the service was not up to part, some of our party had to wait quite a while for their meal whilst the rest had theirs, so we didn't get to eat all together.

Tasty food cooked to perfection. The chefs really listen to your requests, especially how spicy you would like your curry. It's a must for anyone visiting Bradford. We use them more and more for takeaways too!

Go here at least once a month if not more. Fab food, fab staff, fab atmosphere. Clean, tidy and always have a space for you even on busy nights when you haven't booked. Usually go with friends but do go with my husband and kids... the kids are always made to feel welcome.
