“Very Poor Takeaway standards declining”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

I have always rated the Shimla and received a new menu, new opening times etc recently and given its standards before we assumed improvements but not so.

The food has changed, the portions and meat content are less and the amount of veg and flavour in the dishes has declined - we tried twice and had a number of different dishes but the results were all the same - such a shame as it used to be my favourite restaurant. It may of changed hands but I am not sure which would explain the sudden decline

“A good curry house for a late night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

It was okay to be fair, we went in after a late one at the pub and the staff were very helpful. the food was of a good standard but the place (including the toilets) needs a bit of a re-decorate and tidy up to get up to a high standard. I have eaten in better but it was noit too expensive.
