Looks can be so deseving...
At first glance, Shapla looks warm, inviting and appears popular. It's not until I went inside that I was let down in every possible way.
Food - in my opinion, the worst curry ever. Honestly.
Service - arrogant.
Cleanliness - almost satisfactory.
Managagment - uninterested and inept.
It's not often I regret trying a new restaurant and giving my custom to a local business, however, last night was an exception. Shapla let me down in every possible way and I would only suggest you visit this place if you want to experience how a curry should not be cooked and served without a smile.
The manager was uninterested in listening to any form of complaint and showed no interest in understanding why his food and restaurant let me down, and why his staff will remain inept while working alongside his low standards.
There are so many great restaurants in Whitstable where the food is wonderful and the delivered to you by people that care about what they do. Unless the standards improve, Shapla Tandoori does not deserve a space on any High Street.
