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

It took about 15-20 minutes from Stafford Centre but definitely worth it. The Staff were polite and helpful from the off. And most importantly the food was incredible. 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

Takeaway dishes also come in useful reusable plastic containers. 10% discount on takeaway collection, always ready for pick up within 30mins of ordering. Friendly staff... More

We have eaten here a couple of times now and on both occasions the food and service have been fantastic, there are no negatives. I must say that it is the best curry house I have been to in a long time.

Probably the best curry and overall evening in an Indian Restaurant that my wife and I have had for years. This really is one of those places that will stay in the memory as a great experience. I was intending to list the meal that we had, but to be fair I reckon that anything we might have ordered would... More

Have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions, taking all different family and friends, because I just can't praise it enough. The food is always of top standards, the vegetarian selection is amazing, with most of the curry dishes having the option of being mixed vegetable. They are always willing to put on a spread for a special occasion, for my... More

Awesome food. Awesome service and very welcoming. You get what you pay for. Shimla Palace isn't cheap, but it's a perfect blend of great food in a very relaxed and friendly environment.
