“Nice place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

We enjoyed our meal at Simla Spice! Even by 7.00pm on a Saturday evening the place was busy - a good sign - but fortunately we had made a reservation. The décor is clean and contemporary with comfortable seating and the restaurant was very spacious - the tables were not crowded together. The staff were efficient and welcoming and the young waitresses were very pleasant and nicely spoken. All round the service was good. The bar was well-stocked and, as well as the usual Indian bottled beers they served Kingfisher on tap. The food was good too - Chicken Biryani and Chicken Passanda. They have a good menu with everything that you would expect to see in an Indian restaurant. I just wished that they had more fish dishes apart from salmon and King prawns but otherwise there was a reasonable choice at a fair price. Desserts were mainly ice cream/sorbet variations. We would go again.

Staff are always welcoming, food is very tasty, wines are a reasonable price. Plenty of buzz.
Tried the takeaways but weren't that good.

“Great ambience and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

We heard from our hotel staff that the ownership of this restaurant has been changing hands, so the reviews keep changing too. But we thought that the food was excellent, and the restaurant is nice & bright.
