“Excellent all round”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2010

Visit Shapla once every couple of months, driving down from Derry and well worth it! Their set meal menu for 2 or 4 people including wine is great value, approx E37 for 2 and E72 for 4 including wine). Wide menu of Indian food and the food and service are excellent. (Limited non-Indian food on set meal menu.) Looking forward to our next visit.

“Good pricing. Excellent food. Decor could be our indian.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2009

I eat here regularly with my family. Pricing is somewhat expensive generally, but if you can get the early bird menu (Monday-Thursday, 5.30-7.30pm) the pricing is much better.

The menu is excellent, even the early bird menu.

The staff are generally very attentive.

The location is away, from Letterkenny town center, but suits me. Car/taxi really is required.
