Been coming to Shapla for 3 years and haven't got a bad word to say about it. The staff are lovely and friendly and I cannot fault the service. The food is brought swiftly and is absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Compared to previous experiences with Indian restaurants, this is one of the best meals we have had.

Mardy staff, new staff, not the tasty food and excellent friendly service we've experienced in the last 16years. It's a real shame.

This is a very interesting room with friendly and efficient staff. Unfortunately, on the evening we were there, the food was little better than mediocre. Still, there was plenty of it and the beer was nice and cold.
