Better than last time but the place was freezing cold which you don't want in a restaurant. Mixed kebab and a special chicken tikka korai was very tasty. Prices are reasonable for what you get.

Had several take always from here, always delivered by a very polite young man in a shirt and tie. The food has always been fantastic and Hot as we live near the Tesco express, so very close for delivery.

Menu choice was good and prices were fair. Mixed starter was OK though the lamb tikka was a bit tough. Chicken tikka korai with onion rice and naan... More

Just had a wonderful meal, delivered by a man in a very smart shirt and tie and very pleasant. The food was hot and fresh, looked good. Best samosas I've had for a long time. Will order here again. And again.

The menu is varied and the food is wonderfully tasty and portion... More

The staff are nice, the food is OK.... £1.95 for a shot of orange cordial... When I questioned this the man said 'its £2.50 for a coke in town'! Not sure of the relevance of that statement but I won't ever go back as I feel robbed...

Expansive menu. Bold flavours. Quality food. Warm ambience. Spacious interiors. We were in Burnley for barely 4-5 hours, visiting a friend. She had no hesitation recommending Shapla. And it turned out to be a delightful dining experience.
