“The best eating place in Renfrew”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

We are very regular visitors to the Shimla as it is the only place I would eat in Renfrew. It is exceptional value for money and the food is outstanding. The staff are friendly and the manager Kolin treats you more like family than customers. The food is freshly prepared for the buffet as customers arrive. I am a vegetarian and if i don't fancy the curry on the buffet it is never an issue, something I fancy will be rustled up for me. My daughter says its the best korma ever and my husband says the lamb is to die for it is so tender. The pakora is the best I have ever tasted. Eating in the Shimla is a relaxing experience. I would recommend the buffet and 5 drinks as that is what we have every week.

“Exceptional value”
Reviewed 16 December 2012 via mobile

We visit the shimla at least once a month. There buffet is exception value for money. Fed you family for little more than the price of a McDonald's. Food always of a high standard and Colin couldn't be more helpful. Give it a try you won't regret it.

“Best Indian food in renfrew and paisley”
Reviewed 20 November 2012 via mobile

Had another fantastic meal here ,must say its most definatly the best Indian food I've had bar none! We had the most beautiful , tandoori chicken and chicken tikka, you can tell its quality meat an not some of the processed rubbish you get in other places, my son an his girlfriend ate from the buffet , all very fresh and hot , brilliant choices both for starters and mains ...can't fault this place great service, very reasonably priced for food and drinks, it's right in the Centre of Renfrew , easy to park , we are always made feel really welcome ,,, if we are in Glasgow we always jump in a taxi and come here because there is really nowhere to match it even in the heart of Glasgow!!
Do try it you will not be disappointed

“Kolin's Kracking Korma”
Reviewed 16 November 2012

Terrific food, good value, top notch service. The New Shimla is a great restaurant to relax and enjoy a nice meal and a few drinks. Kolin, Darcin and Angie make you very welcome, nothing is too much trouble for these guys. Would recommend the buffet and drinks deal, great value
