We had relatives from America over and they wanted to try and Indian restaurant over here. I suggested Shapla's and everyone loved it! Even my grandparents who only eat bland english food, they catered for! Brilliant service, very attentive and would highly recommend! 👍

Called in on a works outing. Friendly staff, a good menu with plenty of choice and food served promptly. The food was well cooked and tasty. Good ambience, and a friendly air about the place. Not badly priced. Will call again
