Friendly reception and service in the fairly small restaurant. Worth booking for busy nights. Food is very good. We have been a number of times and never been disappointed. No parking, so best places are the pay and displays at the station or library. It's only a short walk (about 100/150 meters) from these.

The last few times I have been to the Shapla have really been hit and miss which is such a shame as it used to be amazing. After trying to stay loyal to them, and making excuses for bad experiences, last nights takeout has compelled me to go elsewhere from now on. Tasteless, grotty, and won't risk it again.

Freshly cooked Indian food. Staff very friendly and helpful. Family run business. Never eaten in, always have take out, as there are so many of us, as actual restaurant quite small, but good atmosphere.

I have used this restaurant for well over 10yrs. I have always had a great meal. The staff are friendly and welcoming, always on hand to assist you. Nothing is to much. The food is always 1st class. Also have about 4 takeaway deliveries a month. So we do eat quite often from this restaurant. Would recommend to anyone

We all like Indian food, and on the first Monday of our holiday we walked in to town with open minds as to what to have for our evening meal. There is a reasonable choice of eateries and Shapla is the one that we chose. One reason for this is that the place was busy, which is unusual for a... More

We took our new neighbours to Shapla having been there many times ourselves and our neighbours having moved into the area. It was a very embarrassing experience as obviously the business from the take aways was far more important than the business in the restaurant. A considerable wait for the meal. Hot plates placed in front of us only to... More

Food is very fresh and tasty. Lots to choose from on the menu. Amazing food and great service. We thought the prices were very, very reasonable. The prawn puri was spectacular (and huge). All portions are large so don't order too much food!!
