The simla has now been taken over by new owners. Menus still say simla inside, so I'm guessing it's a fairly new thing. The food was good. Service a little slow, as the guy was on his own and it quickly filled up after we got in there. Food was very nice, Currys were all delicious, rice wasn't the warmest,... More

Staff were more friendly than the other Indian, but food was not quite as good. There is no rivals to push the quality up. We were disappointed and didn't return, despite intimidating we would, if meal was right.

Having read other reviews I do wonder if the restaurant has had a change of ownership as our recent experience was nothing like some of the other reviews. The restaurant appears to be run quite a young family and they were welcoming. Our order was taken fairly quickly and the food was delicious. Can't complain about any of it and... More

Me and my partner went here for dinner as we were staying at the hotel next door. We were greeted by a lovely young lady who seated us and took our order. The food was amazing!! You could tell it was fresh and we was really impressed. The staff were really polite and we really enjoyed dining there. If we... More

Popped in for a takeaway, ordered 2 poppadoms and a chicken tikka masala on its own (no rice) to a cost of £11! I headed back to the apartment looking forward to my curry and for that price I was confident it was gonna be worth it. How wrong could I have been, the food was awful, absolutely bland! The...

We decided to eat here last week, our experience was so terrible its taken me over a week to decide if I was even going to write a review but thought i owe it to other hardworking professional people who should know before they spend their money here. The restaurant only had one other table full when we arrived and... More

Visited during the balloon festival when we were looking for something other than a burger van. Pleasant welcome and we were shown to our seat promptly even though they were busy. Food was good, we had chicken tikka balti, tasty without being too hot. Pleasant hosts, good food, will visit again when in Llangollen!

Decided to have an Indian take-away as me and my wife had not eaten an Indian meal for ages. First disappointment was that there was no take-away menu and we were charged restaurant prices. Second disappointment was when we opened the containers. They were 80% sauce. There was a maximum of one (small) chicken breast in each container. Third disappointment... More

Tried their mixed meat dish platter which was really good. Aldi Australian wine was a bit pricey though. Well worth a visit.
