We have gone to Shimla Spice several times with friends and is very good but, It would be nice if they would clean the curry serving bowls a lot better. Mine have always been caked with left over food around the handles. As far as the curries, all of them that I have had been very good, But I have... More

In Yorkshire for the Tour de France and staying in Shipley, so of course we must go to a curry house to see how the local ones compare to Bristol curry houses. Shimla Spice's website said they'd recently won English Curry House of the year, so we'd better give it a visit. And just superb. The place is clearly very... More

I have been here twice this week, once for a take away and another to eat in.. The food and the service were faultless on both occasions. The menu is.varied and looks to cater for everyone. I wouldn't have any hesitation recommending Shimla Spice and would encourage everyone to give it a try. I will be back again soon without... More

Spur of the moment treat for me and my girlfriend. Very busy on a Friday night, good buzz about the place it's a lot bigger than it looks from the outside. Greeted and seated very quickly. Huge choice of meals, decided to go with a chicken madras and a liver balti dish. Food arrived piping hot. Unfortunately we didn't like... More

Having always being told to try Shimla I decided it was worth a go. Family of 5 we took the jump and tried it and can only say it was a brilliant experience, good quality traditional Curry with good service and fantastic price. £70 for starters, mains, sides and drinks you cannot fault it. The service is not rushed and... More

It was recommended for my first Bradford Curry to visit the award winning Shimla Spice. I rang up for a table for 11 on a busy Saturday night without notice. They got us in quickly. First impressions. The service was a bit slack. Poppadoms put on the table without being asked if we wanted them. I asked for a lager... More

The restaurant was quite busy and we hadn't made a reservation prior to turning up but we weren't kept waiting long at all for a table. Service was fast and the staff were very pleasant. When the food came it was delicious and in quite generous portions. The starters were particularly enjoyable. Despite how busy the restaurant was, the atmosphere... More

Went on a Sunday afternoon and booked first thankfully as the restaurant looked busy from the outside and it was although there is plenty of room inside. Good atmosphere and was shown to our table by a nicely dressed waiter and given menus etc. Another waiter came over to take our order - he was dressed in a shirt and... More

Decor aside......the food is excellent as is the friendly service. The restaurant isn't licenced but they have no problem supplying corkscrews glasses etc without charge. The food is exceptional value. The menu is ridiculously long which may cause suspicion about an all purpose sauce but the food was sufficiently distinctive to allay any fears. The kitchen were even able to... More

We went on a Friday night and it was very busy, however they managed to get us a table within a few minutes (we spent the waiting time studying their extensive menu). The staff were all very welcoming and friendly and the decor was very nice. Everything we had was hot, tasty and good value for money - we couldn't... More
