The starters were lovely, staff polite good service. However the main reason for going were a let down. Cheap packet pre sliced chicken, looked like sandwich filling. The sauce looked and tasted like it came out of a jar. Couldn't eat the chicken madras far to salty. The Manager took the cost off the bill after telling us he tasted... More

Enjoyed a meal here for valentines night. When got there the place was pretty much empty with just ourselves and maybe 3-4 other couples while we were there. We were shown to a window seat with pretty much every other couple not sure why they did this but maybe to have the impression they were busy. We ordered our food... More

3rd visit to Simla, again very impressed - the Tawa garlic chilli chicken was delicious, it also has in my opinion the best mushroom rice. A huge thank you to the staff that put a surprise candle in my ice cream & happy birthday music for me. Will definately return next time we are back in TQ in June. Staff... More

An attractive clean welcoming environment, with kind attentive staff. I asked for vegetable masala, because I'm vegetarian, and even though it's not on the menu, the answer was yes, and it was so good I smiled and grinned my way through it. My husband had king prawn masala and loved it too! Naan bread, wine, coke, ice cream and liqueur... More

Had a really nice meal here, which unfortunately spoilt by the painfully slow service. We should of guessed it was going to be slow as they took ages to take our order, between starter and the main it was about an hour's wait. The people next to us were also fed up and had to ask for the bill four... More

We stumbled across Simla Spice looking for somewhere for dinner and I'm so glad we did. By far one of the best Indian restaurants I have eaten in (I'm from London). We didn't have a reservation and walked in off the street, there was buffet but we decided to order from the menu. We ordered poppadoms to start, I had... More

Simla Spice Torquay 10/10 We had not booked so just walked in. The restaurant is large and spacious but cosy. We were greeted and selected a table by the window with a view of the night life. It was warm and comfortable. The menus looked brand new. We were directly asked if we would like drinks which came soon. I... More
