I visited this restaurant with the other half at the start of July before visiting the theatre. The restaurant looks great from the outside and even better inside. We sat in a round bay which was very romantic and my wife loved it. The meals really stuck in my mind as they were the best I have had in some... More

First of all we were not allowed to wait inside the restaurant for 10 minutes before opening. Then waitress when asked how big rice portions are made comments that back home were he comes from one portion means one portion. General service was just rude and made dinner time unpleasant. Food was average, but service was very poor.

I have been visiting the Shapla on and off since the 80's and have always enjoyed everything here. The owner Malik even remembers me from the 80' and knows several family members of mine. Right down from the welcome to the amazing food and drinks everything is always spot on. The chicken shapla is my favourite. This place is always... More

Been meaning to write a review about this place but never get round to it. I work in Sheffield on average 9 days a month and always love coming to the Shapla at least 3 times in the month. The restaurant is plush and homely. The staff are friendly and attentive without being over bearing. The food is always fresh... More

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. The restaurant itself had a fantastic atmosphere, with traditional aesthetics (including gorgeous tiger imagery on the walls). The poppadoms and chutney, to begin, was splendid, with a berry-tasting chutney being a highlight, one that we hadn't had previous. The main arrived promptly and... More
