Great meal with good service.

My husband and I enjoyed a meal at Shimla while staying for the weekend in Shipley. The restaurant is a good size and was very busy. Waiting times didn't seem to be a problem though as there was plenty of staff on hand. We both enjoyed our meal and agreed that the curry was the best we had tasted... read more

Excellent food; very authentic and tasty, menu well explained and loads to choose from. Very reasonably priced; great value. Service was faultless, staff very frienly, and a pleasant atmosphere. Definitely recommend and would definitely eat here again.

Visited Shimla Shipley for the fourth time now and you can't go wrong , attentive staff, love how someone comes over to see if the meal is fine, very good sized portion, they even packed up for me what was left and finally absolutely lovely deco (need the mirrors in my house).

Have had at least a 10 year relationship with Shimla. Always tend to eat the same dish and regularly visit both restaurants, as well as having takeaways. Tonight is the third (and last) very disappointing meal at Shipley. Made my feelings known and was told the chef would be informed. Whatever happened to those early heady days?

Saw a mouse just after we had finished eating. Such a shame as the food was lovely. Told the staff who just laughed. Maybe they thought I was lying?

As a party of four ordering different meals we found the timing of the meals served faultless i.e. all arrived at same time which enabled the conversation to flow, twice asked if the meal was ok not pestered not rushed proberbly due to the fact that you bring your own alcoholic drinks, good quality food, all been before, all will...

Been to the restaurant on several occasions now and like our previous visit really enjoyed our meal. We arrived early evening on a Friday to a already busy restaurant by the time we left it was packed. The food and service was fantastic.

Very attentive and friendly staff and great food. Very co operative and helpful as one of our party has a nut allergy. Water topped up throughout the evening and food well presented. It was really nice to see the more experienced staff tutoring the younger ones in how to do the job!

We enjoyed our evening here as a group of 4 friends. Hungry after a canal walk we were not disappointed in the quality or quantity of food. We each had a starter, followed by delicious main courses accompanied by Naan, chapati & rice. It was difficult to finish & the food was efficiently removed & packed for us to take... More
