Location and contact

Situated in the heart of Oswestry, the Simla Tandoori Restaurant is one of the oldest Indian restaurants in Shropshire and the surrounding areas. The perfect blend of traditional Indian cooking served with Shropshire hospitality, the Simla in Beatrice Street Oswestry serves classical Indian food. Celebrating over 3 decades of culinary excellence this family owned business has created mouth-watering Indian dishes that replicate the high quality of cuisine enjoyed by the army officers at the old hill station in north west India during the British raj, from which the restaurant draws its name.
