CONSISTENTLY FABULOUS FOOD/ BUZZING ATMOSPHERE/ GREAT STAFF

My boyfriend and I have been using Shimla Spice regularly ( pretty much weekly!) over the last 5 years...having previously been Aagrah fans but found their service and food to have gone downhill.I cant remember what made us pick Shimla to try but I'm extremely glad we did. We can both honestly say... read 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

Tasty curry (the meat is beef), good service, and decent price-wise as you can bring your own beer. Would've liked some more chutneys/pickles with my poppadums, I guess you had to ask. But all round very good.

Shimla is always consistant for giving best class in food and service.We were there on Tuesday and as always the food was first class,as was the service.The restruant was busy by 6.30p.m with a lovely atmosphere.Poppadoms and pickle, King prawn Balti, Chicken Biryani, and a huge delicious Garlic Naan,£21 !! Can't be beaten.

My family all eat here and get deliveries when not eating in, always order Desi style as it is less oily family sharing version of favourite dishes, can't sing their praises highly enough. We range in age from 9 to 79 and it is all of our favourites, no wonder it is always busy,

Made the mistake of not booking for 7 p.m. on a Sunday, but they soon squeezed us in. Efficient and friendly service. Take your own alcohol, which helps to keep the bill down. Excellent food, but if you order the family naan take care - you need a big family to eat it!

Always a good meal from Shimla - whether eat-in or delivered (free locally). Only draw back is the lack of a licence - though you can bring your own.
