Pretty busy but seated and served quickly, rare meal out without kids (who were battling nerf war nearby). Food served quickly and very tasty, my wife couldn't complain which is great, but this meant I had to take the brunt of her moaning, namely about how I'm an irresponsible parent and husband which I found strange as I didn't spill...

My parents had previously dined at Simla on two occasions and spoke very highly of it. We were keen to find a new great and reliable curry house after they had found a different restaurant (previously their favourite) in a nearby village had dropped in standards considerably. Upon visiting my parents for the weekend we fancied a treat meal out... More

We have been visiting the Simla for thirty years, and it remains superb, with tasty dishes, great service, clean premises and now a speedy delivery service to boot... Especially recommend tandoori, tikka, meat thali, lamb pasanda and chicken chatt. Vegetable side curries and naan breads also excellent.
