This was our first visit to the Shimla Palace, and while the food was very good, the evening was spoilt a little by the time we had to wait to be served.

I was driving past the other day and thought I'd give this place a try. I found three dishes I want to taste, so was hoping the one I chose would be good enough to merit a second visit. Fear not; the manager recommended a fourth dish, which was excellent, as were the rice. popadoms, naan bread and my partner's... More

The staff are on another level, extremely friendly, happy they make a great restaurant with brilliant food even better. I could not recommend this restaurant higher. Well worth... More

We turned up without a booking and needed a table for 6 and had 2 noisy kids, one on crutches! We were found a great table despite them being busy and told they needed it back by 9 but were treated so well and ended up not leaving until 9.30. Staff were lively, chatty and very helpful and engaging with... More

Ordered a takeaway for collection whilst on the way back from a busy day out yesterday. I arrived at Shimlas 10 minutes before the scheduled collection time & went inside to wait. The staff were extremely polite & professional & I only had to wait a couple of minutes for my order. I was pleasantly surprised that a main course... More

Authentic cuisines, tailored to my spice tolerance, full or flavour, fresh, and brought to me when I wanted. Staff continuously ensured things were ok, and not in the annoying way, in the... More
