Lamb madras and tarka dhal were unfortunatley quite watery. Lamb was tender but although hot, lacked flavour. The takeaway service was busy so sadly the restaurant service was neglected and unattentive. There are plenty of great Indian/ Nepalese restaurants locally now so won't be returning...More

We were treated to a fantastic 5 course meal where owner Ali and his staff are second to none in their hospitality and service. Shapla is the best Indian Restaurant I’ve had the pleasure of eating in by a ‘country mile’.
