“Best Indian in town”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

the portions are huge so make sure you save some room. The place is fairly priced and the food is fantastic. Larger than normal chunks of succulent chicken. If you like Indian i highly recommend here.

“In comparison to other take seats, this is not the best...”
Reviewed 17 February 2013

Stopped here for a takeaway one.night leaving Letterkenny, putting it simply, I would rather wait for supermacs in Sligo next time than eat here, portions were very mean, great if you're feeding a toddler, quality wasn't all that great.

Can't recommend this place at all, to anyone.. Sorry..

Staff on.the counter couldn't really care.less if.you were sitting there naked...

“Great for take aways”
Reviewed 22 January 2013

the food in Shaple is excellent but the restaurant lacks an atmosphere. Maybe go with a crowd or else get a take away. You can't fault the Indian food and they do excellent early bird

“Fantastic dinner and great value (vegetarian friendly)”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

Had a great meal at Shapla tonight. They had some great specials but we chose to order from the menu which was still great value. We got two starters, two mains, two drinks and a naan bread all for under 50 euro. Upon arrival we were given some complimentary papadoms and dips that was lovely.

Both myself and my husband had the vegetarian platter as a starter and it was delicious. I had the vegetable korma as my main and my husband had the chicken tikka special. Both meals were delicious and the serving sizes very generous ...... I couldn't finish despite my best efforts.
The staff were also very friendly and efficient. The only down side was there wasn't a huge variety of vegetarian dishes available ..... but there was enough to keep me satisfied for at least another few visits.
