The only thing we can ever say about Simla’s .... EXCELLENT.... food, service, friendliness, menu and adaptability!!!

Started using this place again recently for delivery & made me wonder why I used anywhere else. Food was absolutely delicious, delivered quickly & arrived tasty and hot. The tandoori chicken balti is my current favourite!

We only normally use this place for a sit down as a treat, however due to the strange times we are currently in we decided to have a takeaway. We expected a top notch meal and we weren’t wrong, the starters were lovely and the...mains were as tasty as sitting in. The only thing I would score down is the naan but they never travel and in fairness were much better than our local takeaway. I would highly recommend for take out and look forward to returning to eat in once boris allows us to.More

There are so many good food outlets in this area, but in my opinion, Simla can't be beaten. Although we all have our favourite dishes, whatever you chooses here is always flavorsome, fresh and plentiful. Service is friendly and efficient but not pushy. The team...do not disappoint. With lockdown Mark 2 underway, I had to order takeaway. Lots of people had the same idea and no wonder. Still, having ordered on the phone, the wait was minimal. Again, all dishes were distinct in flavours and up to the highest standards, I was not disappointed. The sooner we can get back to visiting though, the better.More

We ate here tonight and I was very impressed by the high quality food that we were served. There's a value deal on Mondays so we were also happy with the price. A special mention for the friendly and attentive staff too. Thanks for everything.

We first visited this fabulous restaurant several years ago & frankly haven’t looked back since. On arrival the staff greet you with a professional yet very friendly tone. Even during the present circumstances of Covid we have, on a few occasions decided “last minute” as...you do, to go for a curry & although we hadn’t booked a table, we thought we’d Just pop along anyway to see if they were able to accommodate us, fortunately they were & we’ve, as yet been able to dine there on every visit. However I do recommend you book first at the moment, especially if you intend to dine in a large group. Once dined here, trust me, you’ll be hard pushed to better it. When I say they’re willing to cater for your personal taste, I’m not kidding you. Just ask for what you’d like & you won’t be disappointed. My husband tends to be a little more adventurous than me I’ll be honest .. I tend to know what I like & like what I know. I can honestly say the quality of the food is extremely consistent & as yet I haven’t been there & not enjoyed a meal. Portions are generous, yet the quality is there ... no tough, overcooked chicken In the curries I’ve had & personally I can thoroughly recommend the English prawn cocktail starter .. it’s delicious. If you can .. I recommend you book a table downstairs to fully enjoy the fantastic water feature in the window .. it’s totally mesmerising .. However we’ve dined several times upstairs & the atmosphere is still cosy & not overcrowded (in my opinion). I could go on & on but I will spare you that! Just book & enjoyMore

Each of our four main courses had their distinct flavours and were delicious as always. No “one pot” curry here. The team is also fantastic - nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommend.

Visited with my family last week. We wanted my 6 year old grandson to have his first taste of Indian food. Service was excellent,including attention given to my grandson. Food was also excellent and all in all we had a lovely first time experience. We...will be back again!More
