“Always Perfect at the Simla”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We have worked out that we must have started visiting the Simla some 18 or so years ago. They never fail to satisfy and it is well worth the 36 mile round trip that we make every few weeks. Lots of restaurants closer, but they just don't measure up.
The food is always wonderful and you could not get better, friendlier service. Nothing is too much trouble. Prices very reasonable.
Here's to the next 18 years !

“Glad I went back!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I haven't been to The Simla for a few years....I was very glad to see that the food was just as good as I remember it.

The service is efficient and prompt - I wouldn't say that it was the friendliest in the world, but if you can forgive 'the chaps' (there is a distinct lack of female servers in the place...in fact, I've never seen a female in the place all the years I've been visiting!) their bluntness when you enter, sit down and have your order taken, then you can enjoy your meal for the great food to come.....although, friendly service would make this restaurant a 'Great' rating rather than just a 'Good' one.

The food is lovely - we had poppadoms to start, 2 curry's with Naan & Chapattis, Saga loo and mushroom rice.....all hot, fresh, well presented and the extra fresh chilli's on one of the curry's that we asked for made the dish all the more special.

Great food at a reasonable price - they need to work on the service to make people feel special and have a better visit.....the food is lovely though!

“Dont read these reviews, write your own after trying the excellent Simla”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

I am sure KHALID A has visited the wrong restaurant. Everything he said is utter rubbish. The best review you can get is your own,. So try this fantastic Indian restaurant for yourself. If your like me you will find all the staff friendly, helpful and charming. They have a great menu that i can vouch for because i have tried almost all the dishes and never left hungry.

“Quality curry”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Frequently visit Simlas on a Friday night, we always have a good curry. The service is friendly and the food delicious. Im a stickler for a chicken based curry, and there is always plenty of chicken in their curries. They will spice to your taste if you ask them! Never feel rushed, even when its full, and its often really busy!! very reasonably priced food aswell. Will go on visiting

“Excellent Food & Service”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We visit this Indian at least once a week and we've never had a bad experience.

The food tastes so fresh and is always hot. They can get busy so it is advisable to book, especially if there is more than 4 of you. The staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and are always on hand to help if needed when selecting something new to try.
