Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We haven’t been in here before, one of our party had back in 2004. The food was very tasty and the service was spot on The inside of the restaurant was very subtle and tasteful. The music was in the background and ambient We had...various starters and mains and we were all extremely full and satisfied at the end of the meal The staff were very informative and helpful I would recommend a visit to this restaurant and you won’t be disappointedMore

So glad we got a table here. All waiters were very welcoming and food was excellent. I highly recommend the chingri malai curry for anyone who likes prawns. The menu had two chillis beside it but it wasn't too spicy, the coconut sauce was really...well balanced. Also recommend the peshwari naan, that was really light and delicious.More

This was our second visit to Simla which has become a favourite in our group of friends. The menu is varied with excellent vegetarian and meat options with spice levels to suit everyone. The food was cooked to perfection and the service was attentive and...efficient. The staff always go above and beyond to make groups feel comfortable and the addition of pre-dinner popadoms and post-dinner chocolates makes the experience feel extra special. I would recommend Simla to everyone! Thank you, we will be back.More

Myself and my flatmate had a wonderful experience at Simla, the food was exquisite and staff were very friendly and warm. I recommend the trio of chicken tikka and the Tarka dahl. Will definitely be returning!

Top restaurant. Amazing food. Great atmosphere. Staff were so accommodating, when we arrived restaurant was full, but head waiter Abdul recommended we pop across the road for a quick drink and he would have a table ready. 20minutes later we were seated and had order....Amazing service :)More
