“Good food - but we had to wait over an hour for it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

It was a busy Saturday evening so a short wait would have been acceptable - but over an hour? Not much by way of apology, either.

In fairness the grub was good. We were a party of six and we all enjoyed our meals - when they did eventually arrive.

“Lovely Service - OK food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Visiting family recently, we decided to all meet up for a curry and the Simla seemed the best option. It was a very busy Saturday night and the restaurant was packed. We couldn't fault the prompt and attentive service we received. The starter was lovely ( Chicken chat) but have to say wasn't overly impressed with main ( Chicken Dansak) - it seemed to be lacking in taste, missing some vital ingredients. Maybe I'm just being picky, as where we live, we have such a choice of excellent Indian restaurants. Everyone else enjoyed their meals and we had a lovely evening. We weren't rushed or hurried to leave our table and a good time was had by all. Will try Simla again and hope to find the missing spices :-)
