I love Shimla Spice! Their food is fantastic, fresh and tastes wonderful. The staff have very quick and good service and then menu is too big to choose from. I have been a few times but the most recent time I went was on a Saturday evening, which was very busy as expected, however we had booked a table which... More

First visit and not the last for sure cannot believe we have never been before. Beautiful restaurant and a very walk welcome from staff on entering. You can bring your own alcohol which keeps the meal on a good price. The menu is vast and full of loads of dishes I must try again. The Desi house specials are gorgeous... More

Lots of very attentive and friendly staff, in particular Saj who deserves a bonus for his friendly yet efficient service! Chicken tikka masala was one of the nicest curries I have... More

Clean restaurant, varied menu, chargrilled meat, all round quality food that hasn't let me down in years of going : more to the point, for the curry-goer who doesn't want his head blowing off with chilli, their creamy or mild dishes are genuinely well cooked and tasty as opposed to the "bland" option you might get elsewhere. Not cheap and... More

The service was wonderful, the staff were very attentive and made us feel welcome. The menu was vast, I've never been to a curry restaurant and had as much choice before! For starters... More

I have trouble with many different curry houses due to their choice of spices. My partner and I highly recommend this restaurant as there is always generous helpings of beautifully spiced food, professional staff and attentive chefs. Shimla spice had always been a family favorite and I will continue to return frequently. Their takeaways are great also, never once received... More

This restaurant is virtually on our doorstep, though I have only once before visited shortly after it opened and at that time it was a very average experience. Not so this time, I had the king prawn balti and this was one of the very best dishes of king prawn I have experienced anywhere. They were succulent and prepared beautifully.... More
