I had the salmon to start and a lamb curry for mains and both were cooked beautifully and presented very well. House wine was good too and attentive staff. Pricier than your average Indian but not your average Indian. Nice fresh flavouring.

The food is always fantastic and the staff lovely. We've been visiting since Shilpa opened years ago, love this restaurant and have never been let down. Would highly recommend. (Food better than the Lalbagh, in Bourn.)More

An Indian fusion restaurant. We used to go a lot but then needed a break from the 'different'. We returned a whole ago and enjoyed it again. Good restaurant

The food was nicely presented and a very good choice of different dishes. Service was good . Would recommend a visit , we will go again. Perhaps a bit dearer than your normal curry but worth it .
