“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Our whole family love this restaurant. Myself and my husband are regulars on a Saturday night and the team always make our visits seem special. The food is delecious and the waiters are friendly and helpful. They recently gave us a dish on the house because it was my husband's birthday and they delivered food to the house for his party. There are many places to eat a curry in Boldmere but Simla stands above all the rest.

“Always good on quality & value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

This is my regular curry house. It scores highly on menu choice with many original dishes, always beautifully served, with a fruit garnish & swizly colourful display of sauces. The quality & quantity of food served provides excellent value for money. The ambience is more up market than many Indian restaurants, which is reflected in the decor outside & inside. I particularly like the layout of the upstairs tables, which allow you to have a conversation with some degree of privacy - in many other Indian restaurants you're hemmed in like sardines & party to everyone else's discussions! Top marks for Simla from me.

“love it here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

went here on a friday night and place was well busy but they accomodated us well.

food is really nice. especially the tikka platter. enough for two people as a starter.

service was excellent and priced well.

only issue was the place being quite cold inside but for great food you dont mind.

would recommend to all.

“Christmas Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

Went to Simla on Christmas Day. This was our third year and just as we thought it couldn't get any better it did. A five course meal on Christmas Day for under £25.00 is amazing. Most pubs were charging £55.00 - £70.00 for traditional fayre. Simla offer you the choice of either Asian or traditional. Both are excellent.

The staff here are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble and they go out of their way to accommodate you.

The restaurant while busy and buzzing was not overbooked like some we could mention in Boldmere. This created a good atmosphere.

We'll definitely be going back here for our now traditional curry Christmas dinner.
