“Pleasant curry”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Ate here on the 2nd with our grand daughter, we hadn't booked but at 19:30 the place was not too busy so a table was available right away. Drinks and poppadums were quickly offered the latter accompanied by four chutneys/dips. We each ordered different starters and mains from the large menu. Our starters were ready before we had finished nibbling the poppadums but the waiter checked before he brought them out. Tasty mains soon followed the equally tasty starters, our grand daughter could not finish her main course and the waiter was quite happy to take it away and wrap it up for her to enjoy at home. Overall the service was attentive without intruding and there was minimum delay between courses. Throughout our stay they did a busy trade in take-aways, there being a 20% discount from the menu prices. Our final bill was just over £60 for 3 meals including drinks which we consider to be good value. I would be quite happy to recommend Shapla to anyone visiting Lampeter.

“Take away”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

First take away since moving here last October - rang through order - hubby picked up. Fab food and even hubby cleared his plate who is not overly keen usually. Icing on cake would be a delivery service!

Nice restaurant, clean and tidy. The food is nice but the chicken is very dry. I have been here lots of times and every time that I have, the chicken pieces in the kurma have been very dry compared to other Indian take aways I have had.

“Must have been a bad day?”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

On a recent trip to Wales this restaurant was recommended. However I wish that it had not been. The restaurant was overcrowded and the noise levels reflected this. On the evening when we dined here, the waiter explained that they were short staffed. This being a Saturday was quite surprising. This is where the problems began. It took an exceptionally long time for our order to be taken and then we had the longest wait that I have ever experienced in any eating establishment before our food arrived. The meal started quite promising as the starter was well cooked, plentiful and tasty. That part was the only good experience that evening. All those attending did not feel like the main course was anywhere near as good as the starter and some did not eat their whole meal because of this. My own was about as appetising as I would expect from a value ready meal from a supermarket. After such a good recommendation, this was a disappointing meal and I would in future give this restaurant a miss.
