Our son has just started in his 2nd year at Leicester University, and over the last year or so we've being trying out some of the Trip Advisor Curry house recommendations - all so far have been of a pretty good standard, but the food here was definitely the best we've had. Our experience so far had been that the "heat" of curries generally in Leicester is less than we're used to in London (or are we imagining that?), but at Shimla Pinks the chilli rating on the menu was pretty much what we expected. The presentation of the samosa's alone meant that we had to have some (and it was worth it) and all our mains (medium to high heat rating) were lovely. Service was pretty good seeing as it was a Saturday night, and there were a couple of large parties in by the time we got there at 8.30 (having rung about an hour previously to book). Our only slight gripe was that we were sat in the quieter area to the side of the restaurant, and right by the stairs to the toilets - we were given the choice though and maybe in hindsight/next time we'd choose to sit in the busier central area. This is walkable from both the station and where my son is living this year, so we will definitely be back!
