Blown my mind - both food and the service. The restaurant is clean, comfortable and very welcoming which really sets the mood. Immediately approached by head waiter Abdul who was extremely friendly and offered us drinks straight away, without hesitation and created conversation. We ordered...starters and mains which came quick and tasted extremely fresh and authentic. The starters were exceptional, the trio of chicken tikka, lamb and garlic/spicy chicken were beyond words, the meat tasted extremely fresh and great quality. The mains arrived fast and quick and were also exceptional, me and my partner share food which we told the waited who cut the nan bread in half so we could easily eat. He further offered rice to go with one of the dishes as he said it was a compliment to the meal - Abdul really knew the menu, flavours and was there to offer an opinion if we needed. The head waiter noticed when our drinks were empty and asked if we had another before we even had to ask and was there if we needed. I got a poppodom starter to begin with and at the end of the meal asked him if he a ‘corinder’ type style to which he did and got me a small portion to finish my meal off Abdul went above and beyond and simla are extremely lucky to have him. He is freindly and a brilliant example of how a waiter should be. I will be returning in the future and spreading the word of my experience at Simla. Abdul your great!!!More

The food was excellent - starters were very exquisite and full of flavour (different to traditional Indian restaurants). The customer service in this restaurant is second to none. Head waiter Abdul served us through the night and gave fantastic recommendations. Will be returning back in...the future.More

This restaurant was absolutely amazing. The tikka prawn starter were the best prawns I’ve ever had and the Lamb shank rogan josh was out of this world! The service was brilliant too and the staff were very friendly. I’ll definitely be returning soon.

As ever, myself and my flatmates enjoyed the consistently good food of great variety and top quality at Simla. Despite just being a take away we enjoyed the wonderful service from all the staff, especially from Adil, who facilitated an extremely positive customer experience, and...ensured that our visit was appreciated with politeness and professionalism that I’ve known no where else. Can’t wait to return!More

Would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant. Our first time visiting here (after hearing A LOT of good reviews)… and it did not disappoint. Exemplary service, food was outstanding. If you love Indian food (with a touch of class)…get booked in!
