“First class!”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

I don't understand why Shapla is not busier! Is it because it is upstairs? Please don't just walk past - this really is an excellent place for a curry. Décor, service and food quality second to none. Have visited several times and always excellent. Without doubt one of the best curry restaurants in the city.

“Lovely Lunch Excellent Friendly Service”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Decided to check this place out as a work colleague had recommended it. So glad I did, my friend had Chilli Sea Bass to start and I had Chicken in a gorgeous sauce - the waiter brought us a choice of delicious relishes also, they were really good. For our main meal we had Salmon Bhuna and Lamb Jaipuri both were outstanding, the Nan bread and Pilau rice were lovely too. The restaurant itself and the décor were completed to a very high standard. Would suit any occasion from business meetings to romantic evenings. Ai Jnr was an absolutely lovely chap and made us very welcome indeed. I will most definitely be back.

“One of the best meals ever!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Wow - the food is fantastic! So good we went twice in the same week - highly recommended and we now know where to go in Aberdeen if we want excellent food and service. The menu is varied with a good vegetarian choice, and the service is great. It hasn't been open for long, but they deserve to do well as the food is incredibly good. My first choice for a curry from now on.

“Old School”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

A hidden gem, the chef is from one of Aberdeen's finest Indian restaurants in the 90's. The food was fantastic and Ali's service was brilliant.
