“Good food. Friendly service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My husband and I visited Sima over Easter. The food was great and the restaurant was extremely busy. The food was tasty and the menu had a good selection.

We had a seat right by the door which was annoying as a coach load of tourists kept coming and going and leaving the door open. The staff handled the situation well and eventually asked them to leave telling than that the loos were for customers only.

“Barmouth sima Indian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Sima Indian Porthmadog. Stopped today for 3 course lunch at 7.95 and it was great value. You had to pick an starter from a long list, one main from the classic or vegetable then either rice or nan. The only downside was they gave us too much!!! Pity more used this place as it was certainly better value than others in the high streer

“Lovely food, attentive, but not intrusive service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We visit this area annually and sometimes more and will always eat out a few times. Previously when we've wanted an Indian we have eaten at A Passage To India, but our last visit there was disappointing, so we decided to the Sima a go.

It was a Thursday evening and we hadn't booked, but there were a few empty tables. Our welcome was friendly and efficient.

The food was lovely, there was a bit of a wait, but it was cooked fresh and very hot (as in heat not spices), so a wait wasn't a problem.

We found the staff attentive, but not at all intrusive and would certainly return.

“Great food and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Sima Tandoori really is an asset to the town's dining opportunities. Some reviewers seem to expect 'fast food', but this is a small friendly restaurant in which the staff respond with great poise and charm to the demands made by some customers. To those I would say please be patient at busy times or think about booking a table (particularly large groups!). The food itself provides an excellent and varied choice of dishes, including some I hadn't seen before (eg Brussels sprout bhaji), and vegetarians too are thoughtfully catered for.
An excellent evening out.
