“Busy good atmosphere, average food”
Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Went for meal on Saturday night, nice decor and very busy, service was very good. Starter I had was chicken rolls which were very good, main course was fine, but bit lacking in taste, good naan with the food, took our own wine which made it cheaper night out !

“Always very busy and always good”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Went on a Saturday night( 2nd) and it was busy. The menu is varied and there was some new dishes on the menu. One of the group tried one of the new dishes and it was very good. The restaurant operates a " bring your own bottle" system. The food I had was very nice. The staff do cope with the full tables but if you go went it is quieter it is a little bit nicer. This was my , err what number visit , I can not remember but one thing I do remember is that every visit is enjoyable.

“I disagree.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

As a customer of Shimla Spice over the past 13 years or so, I can honestly say I have only ever had to complain twice this is despite the fact I order their curry at least twice a week. The food is always wonderful- not only unique in terms of the spices used (and as a cook myself this intrigues me every time!), but is always consistently good. The staff are friendly and polite, and I always go back for more. I have to disagree strongly with the comments previously made. This restaurant has always been a gem, and always will be.

“WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE?”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

On the outskirts of Bradford, Britain's curry capital, this restaurant more than holds its own.

Faultless and friendly service - and some blissful food.

I didn't pay - but the menu prices are very competitive, and with its BYO policy, you're quids in if you want to booze.
