Ordered a take away via Just Ask due to extreme laziness on Sat 2nd Feb, having never tried this restaurant before. Decided to go for it due to The List magazine rating it as one of the best of its kind in Edinburgh. Ordered some staples - chicken pakora, garlic nan, pilau rice as well as a starter of tandoori chicken and a main of Kathmandu Chicken Tikka Masallam (this wasn't just for me by the way, the other half was also hungry!). Delivery was smooth, within the timescale advised. The food was tasty - chicken pakora was unusual in that it came cooked with gram flour and onion, rather than just spiced and deep fried ... it was quite tasty. The rest of the meal was really very good. First experience of Shapla was very positive, so I will use again.

We ordered four main courses and two vegetable side dishes between four of us. Chicken Pathia, Chicken Balti, East Indian Chicken Jalfrezi,and Chicken Jaipuri. Sides were Bhindi Bhajee and Sag Aloo. All the dishes were extremely tasty but the star was the Jaipuri which had been spiced up on request. The chicken was as always delicious.
The leftovers were frozen. From previous experience they defrost and heat through brilliantly. A wee brucie bonus! We've been going since The Shapla opened in 1993. Very friendly. Highly recommended.

Been getting home delivery from the Shapla for over 5 years now, they went through a poor patch about a year ago when their usual high standards weren't being achieved, but recently seem to be bang on form again.
Fantastic Chicken Jalfreze and Veg Bhaji.
Delivery is super fast too, which is great on a Friday night!

We have been eating here for a few years now, they know who I am when I phone in my order, I can honestly say that I have never had a poor meal from Shapla. My favourite dish being Acher Gosht with a close second place given to the Mixed Tandoori Platter. Give yourself a treat!
