“Simple Excellent”
Reviewed 10 August 2012

My fiance and family go here all the time and it is simply one of the best Indian restaurants I've ever been to. The £12.50 weekday menu is excellent value and the food is cooked to perfection every time, no oily or greasy food like some restaurants serve up. Highly recommended. Great staff as well.

“Very tasty and great ambiance”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

We went for an early dinner and were seated straight away at a table for 6. The plentiful staff were attentive and helpful, and very polite. The service was a wee bit slow - but we were a party of 6 and it was a double anniversary dinner and we were in no hurry.

The food was very tasty and very reasonably priced. After reading some of the reviews on tripadviser, when checked our bill very carefully when it was delivered, but it was 100% correct. It was £100 for the 6 of us including drinks, which is extremely good for an Indian restaurant.

We will certainly be paying further visits.

“Lovely delivered take away”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

Food very tasty and delivered within 40 minutes. Would definitely use again. We had chicken tikka, korma and a madras and all very nice. Boiled rice and mushroom pilau with sag aloo and poppadoms and a king prawn butterfly for under 35. Excellent value but most of all very tasty.

“What happened?”
Reviewed 1 July 2012 via mobile

Visited Shimla Pink before and enjoyed lovely food in a nice atmosphere for a reasonable price, unfortunately it appears to have changed. The food was less than mediocre, what happened to the spices?, no flavour, a disappointing meal to say the least and the service left a lot to be desired, we were 'forgotten' and in the end just asked for the bill, it's such a shame as the restaurant had been a nice place to go and enjoy a curry. I wouldn't even bother getting a takeaway from there.

“Excellent food, shame the repeated bill stitch up lets it down.”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

The food has always been really good, one of the best Indians for food quality. The 5 course weekday banquet is really good value. Well it would be good value if it's wasnt for the repeated times they've tried to stitch us up with the bill. We've been there a number of times but a couple of occasions when the boss hasn't been there, we've had mystery items added to our handwritten bill and not small amounts. I dread to think how many other people haven't noticed and paid over the odds. Gave them the benefit of the doubt the first time, mistakes can happen, but after the second time, the games up.
My advise, enjoy the good food but pay close attention to the bill when it arrives.
