The service is great, food is great. Does not matter if its a take-away or to eat in the resaurant, everything is always to a very high standard. We eat here quite a lot and the number of our party can range from either just myself and hubby, to all the family - 13 of us. They never flap and are always very helpful regarding the menu. If you want something which is not on there, they will try and make it for you, Never a problem.

Shimla Spice is rightly renowed for it quality authentic food in the Keighely area,built on an award winning reputation which way above any local competition and also competes with more trendier names in Bradford , Shipley and Leeds. Low celing premises, hanging lamps with lead windows and no licence might not win any decor awards but its highly frequented and the food more than makes up for this. Ive always gone for Madras prior to moving to Keighley but Shimla won me over to their award winning Chicken Multani , off the bone chicken cooked with green peppers , onion, spices and lemon, enough chilli to bite but not destroy your taste buds and the Corriander flavour really makes it. More recently Ive switched to their Half a Chicken Tandoori , which comes with rice, and vegtable curry . The chicken is cooked to perfection , never too dry and all the flavours sealed in the tandor overs. Easily the best Ive come across in many years of sampling asian food. Treat yourself if you are in the area. Rich

When Shimla Spice first opened some years ago we tried it then and we did not particularly rate the restaurant, service and of course food.....but everyone deserves a second chance, don’t they?? Well second time around (& some years later), again this really is not a great place in many regards. Service is poor – slow, impersonal and ill mannered, food is equally poor at best, very bland and wreaks of a "one sauce fits all" laziness, cleanliness is below average and the whole restaurant is in need of a complete overhaul , atmosphere was good mind – busy, not noisy, well planned seating and good lighting etc!!!!!

If i am honest I’m amazed at the positive reviews on here?!?!?!?!?! - try it for yourself and give it a second chance as we did but this really is a disappointing restaurant in pretty much every aspect of what makes great place to eat - Shimla Spice misses the mark and is one to avoid. We will remain loyal to our usual for some time yet with competition like this!

A pleasant and clean establishment. I have eaten there on 5 occasions (3 at busy times). The service was good, that is to say too good. On all occasions it has felt as if I were being hurried so that they could get more people into the seats we were in. This ditracted from the good food and ruined a good relaxing meal.If they can overcome this fault it will be worth revisiting.
