Visted Simla on Saturday 14th July with my wife and teenage daughter. This place just gets better and better. Both myself and my daughter went for the Seabass with Ginger & Lime. My daughter has been raving about it so I decided to try it. It did not dissapoint. 10/10. My wife had vegetable pathia. Unlike so may restaurants the vegaetarian option wasnt just a pile of boiled vegetables slung into a sauce. Having tried a bit the vegetables were well cooked and seasoned. This dish too although not a veggie myself was brilliant too.

Even though the restaurant was busy, take aways were flying out the door, the service was as it always is, friendly and efficient. Nothing is too much trouble for the guys.
One thing I would say about Simla is they put their own stamp on each dish. Nothing is ever mundane or ordinary here. Presentation of the food is always superb.

Whilst Boldmere has many Asian restaurants. For quality and value Simla is way ahead of the rest.

Nice little restaurant in Boldmere (One of a few!)

Decor is very nice inside and the food standard is very good. The only downside is if you go in when it's quieter you have around 20 waiters all standing about by your table waiting for people to come in which isn't ideal!

It's a bring your own beer which always helps to keep the costs down.

I eat out at Simla regularly and the food is always excellent. There's lots of choice and the quality of the food is consistently good, as is the service. The staff are polite and knowledgeable, offering suggestions when asked, but never making you feel pressured. Individual tastes and appetites can be catered for, and taking you own drinks means a dramatically reduced bill!

We go to Simla once a month (me, mum & sister) and always enjoy the experience. Food is fab and staff always polite & friendly. There are now so many restaurants in Boldmere it's overwhelming...pick Simla and you won't be disappointed.
