They went to extra effort to fit me in for a last minute reservation! Beautiful flavoured food with great portion size. Staff were very attentive and went above and beyond to ensure a great visit.

After visiting Simla on my last visit to Newcastle, my boyfriend and I didn't hesitate when choosing to return when we went back around a month ago. Shelly and Abdul remembered both of our names on arrival as we were welcomed back. The food as...ever was amazing, I had the paneer kofta again and it was even better than I remembered, and we were offered complimentary shots at the end of our evening. We will definitely be returning as soon as I go back to Newcastle, the food and staff are both second to none. A must when visiting the city.More

My girlfriend and I went for our 2nd time to Simla a few weeks ago and were amazed when the staff remembered us from our last visit months before. They even recalled our names! Shelly and Abdul were absolutely excellent as always and really made...the restaurant feel cozy whilst attending to us. The food of course is the best Indian food you can find in Newcastle and can't be beaten but the real experience lies in the kindness of the staff! I will definitely be back again as many times as possible and I can't stress enough how much anyone should pay Simla a visit.More

We at here on November 3rd, it was my first time at Simla and I have to say the food was exquisite. We had starters and mains and even ordered an extra nann after the meal because we didn’t want to waste a drop! The...restaurant had a lovely ambiance and best of all it was full yet felt very safe due to the measures taken for Covid 19. The staff were all wonderful and they all went the extra mile for us! We even received a complimentary drink from them! We were served by Adil and he was brilliant. He made conversation and we enjoyed his service throughout our visit. Compliments to all the staff! You have a lovely restaurant and we will be back after lock down!More

Simla is the most amazing and authentic Indian restaurant I’ve been to in UK. Have been looking for a place that tastes like home, since I’m from India myself, and this place is it! The staff is extremely kind and genuine, and ensured our dining...experience was memorable. Even gave us naan bread on the house out of consideration! Couldn’t recommend a place more.More

Me and my partner went here last night for a meal, we were not disappointed, firstly, the restaurant is very covid-safe, the staff all wear masks or visors, there is also hand sanitiser as you walk in to the entrance and also placed around the...restaurant. The food was unbelievable, definitely the best Indian restaurant we have been to, the staff cannot do enough for you and are so attentive and friendly, I had the king prawn tandoori starter which was unbelievable and tasted so fresh, my partner had a scallop starter which was also amazing, they just melted in your mouth. We will definitely be back when yous reopen for some more amazing food.More
