Excellent service, friendly and efficient. Surroundings okay, crowded. Food was excellent but the salad accompanying the kebab was very very small! Balti was excellent. No alcohol can be taken in or consumed there which is a drawback and takes from the night out. Prices not cheap but fair for what you get.

I go to shimla quite frequently despite moving away from Shipley. The food is beautiful, service is always excellent and I'm never disappointed when I go. Every time I crave curry, I wished I had shimla on my doorstep.

OK I know I titled it lovely food... it is. The price is reasonable and you can take your own drink. They have won the National Curry award several times and it's always busy with a good crowd.... My issue is it is the only place where I get indigestion at 3am after eating there, then I'm sick. No one... More

2nd visit. Last time was 5 years ago. I loved it then and love it now. The food, especially the meat dishes are as good as it gets. We live in London and hope to be back soon. Awesome!

Best starters around and a good atmosphere with good decor Good food, curries are well priced and tasty but what sets this place apart from the rest is the excellent service from the staff. They can't do enough for you and I truly believe service is half the battle, especially in the curry houses of Bradford area One of the... More

Been here twice and on both occasions the food has been fab. Everything was fresh and served hot at the table. (I say this because I have been to some where food is warm:served on cold plates..). Staff are friendly and attentive. One of my top 5 curry houses 🖒🖒🖒

We visited the Shimla Spice last night as visitors to the area. We were greeted Warmly and at 8.30pm the place was buzzing. You can see why! Excellent food and its own authentic recipes. Curries you just don't see in your average curry house. Can't recommend more highly. Food phenomenal

Being a yorkshire lad I had always wanted to try a curry house in Bradford. Well as you first see the place they certainly let you know they have won a few awards. Don't let this put you off if subtly is your thing. The decor inside continues the in your face theme as subtle it isn't. We went during... More

Def my favourite curry place at the moment. Food is amazing, good friendly service. Waiters have always been happy to talk through menu if not sure on something. The sizzler starter for two is amazing. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant and not to crowded and crammed in like other popular curry places in Bradford! Not too badly priced either.
