Regularly order takeaway from here and have eaten at the restaurant a couple of times. Always excellent service and amazing food and a good atmosphere. :-)

“Consistently good food & service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and have always been impressed. The food is good value for money, and there's plenty of choice on the menu. The staff are always friendly, and food is brought to you quickly. I would recommend visiting this restaurant if you are in the area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Went to Shapla on a sunday when they have the meal offer. Great value. Great food. Always leave stuffed. Plenty of food. Staff very friendly. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Had several curries off them from there set menu. Delicious and reasonably priced. The set menu delivered could honestly feed four theres that much :)

“Tasty good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I'm not a local but this restaurant is close to my in laws, I have ordered a takeaway from here before and it was good. I remember when this used to be a fairly dingy northern pub, so I was impressed on entering at the transformation. It is a modern, contemporary dining room.

We had booked and the restaurant was busy with a couple of large group bookings. We were seated after momentary confusion is a quiet corner of the restaurant, which was perfect. Ordered some drinks and popadums, chutney etc. Placed order, I went for prawn puri, which was as good as any prawn puri that I have ever tasted. Chicken Madras was up next my wife had pasanda. The food was fresh, hot (especially in the case of the madras) and the portions were generous.

Due to the group bookings service was a little slow, but due to the company & circumstances I wasn't over worried. The bill was reasonable and it was a pleasant dining experience. The free digestif was also a nice touch at the end of the meal.

I don't know the restaurant scene in Burnley particularly well, so I cannot compare the Shapla to any other local restaurants. It is located about 2 miles from the town centre and it does have parking. I would eat here again.

“Cosy and lovely service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Visited here for the second time last night. The atmosphere is really warm and welcoming and I cannot fault the service at all! The staff are friendly and nice to talk to and they bring the food to you really quickly.

The food is really nice, we loved the chicken tikka starter and chicken korma. Garlic naan was perfect and we were given complimentary bailey's and brandy at the end of the meal.

Will definately go back here. Love it! :)
