Delicious

We've eaten here several times and it's always brilliant. An excellent range of starters and curries with a nice dessert menu if you've got the space! The portions are huge, we often have 2 starters and 2 curries to share between 3 and there's plenty! Soft drinks are available. If you want... read more

My family have been customers of the Aagraah chain for over 30 years. Indeed, my aunt and uncle were some of the first customers of the old Shipley branch in the late 70's. However, we have felt the Aagraah has become too big for its boots and standards have very sadly slipped. At Shimla, the standards are always very high,... More

We have been coming to shimla spice since it's opened in shipley and have never had a bad meal here. We come for large family get togethers or just a quick dinner for 2 with my boyfriend. The place is always buzzing, the staff are friendly, efficient and the food is just excellent. We like the freshness of ingredients, the... More

My boyfriend and I ate here for the first time on Saturday night as we are new to the area and are absolute curry monsters, we opted for the tandoori chicken and chicken rolls as starters, the rolls were nice I'm not keen on eating from the bone so the chicken was a little disappointing and from what I remember...

Had a really good time meeting up with friends and their families at Shimla Spice last night. Shame then that the food was not so good. Although my Mushroom Paratha starter was fine my Keema Madras main was terrible, being bland, tasteless and very salty! I wasn't alone either with my Wife not enjoying either her Veg Pakora starter or... More

We can both honestly say that the food has been CONSISTENTLY great... More

Great experience for my first visit to Shimla Spice. You can't beat a Bradford curry so it is nice to have such a great experience when I go home to visit. Four of us went on Sunday night (table booked in advance) and the restaurant wasn't too busy but wasn't dead quiet either which was nice. All the staff were... More

We booked a family gathering, around 25 of us. Although booked we still had to wit about 20-30 mins whilst they sorted the tables out which were quite squashed together. Placed our orders which were a number of mixed grills which arrived with far too many onions that it drowned the taste of the food. The plates were dirty so... More
