I have eaten in the Shiplu for over 20 years. The quality of their curry is always of a high standard and personally I recommend their dansak . The staff are always attentive and the management very helpful and approachable.

We decided to visit the Shiplu as we normally visit the chilly tree. I have say the food was very nice but overly expensive in my opinion.

We have been here many times and enjoyed it but tonight it was not to be. Slow service and Luke warm food. Sent the rice back as it was cold and not much warmer when it was returned. The curry however was tasty but we suspect our orders were muddled up as the madras was no hotter than the classic... More

Unlike many Indian restaurants, there never seems to be a time when you are the only customers. That must say something. Have ben lots of times and one Festive season they has a brussel sprouts bhaji on the menu. We tried out of curiosity and it was terrifc! We have always found the service to be very good and food...

Eaten here a few times with differing levels of service. Food is standard fare and I would recommend other curry options in Bexhill ahead of this resturant.

Absolutely love this place, but we've had deliveries from here twice and both times they've taken 1hr 20-30mins to arrive and food has been about luke-warm. They need to sort out their delivery option, but as an Indian Restaurant and takeaway service the food is absolutely spot on. Love it!

I was staying closeby and wanted something to eat quickly. Out of all the places on the main street, it looked the most welcoming. I'm not a great lover of Indian food, mainly because I don't really know what to order. When the onion bahjis arrived, I thought I'd never get through them but they were piping hot and delicious....

It's a ok Indian, nothing special . Food was ok staff are polite and friendly. Would maybe an idea to tone down the lighting a little, way too bright and Christmassy for me. As I said the food was ok, too many times they came around to ask if it's ok. Warm reception , but I don't think I will... More
