“Great value buffet in Ayrshire”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Whether visiting Kilmarnock or a local, the Shimla Palace is the place to go for an Indian buffet meal. The range of food is very good, and the quality and freshness is first class - it looks as if the food is prepared/presented in small batches, so the taste and quality is not compromised.

Service is efficient, with the staff friendly and professional.

The biggest plus is the value for money though - you can enjoy a buffet meal for under £10 (excl. drink) at the weekend - great value and a lesson to others.

In the words of another - this does exactly what it says on the tin - er, flyer/menu!!
