We enjoy this restaurant, the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Sometimes we feel a bit rushed. The menu is interesting as it’s divided into regions.

Sorry you were rushed out of Shafiq’s Shimla cottage. Please in future tell the waiter that you are in no rush whatsoever. We will make sure that you don’t feel rushed. Kind regards Tabassum Shafiq

Our family went for a birthday celebration recently which was very enjoyable. The place was pretty dead as we were the only customers that evening, probably because of the popularity of the new Coach House and of course, Amaretto just along the road. Food was...More

WELCOME TO SHAFIQ'S SHIMLA COTTAGE (formerly the Simla Restaurant) Initially opened in 1973,the Simla was,then,the only Indian restaurant serving Indian cuisine out with Glasgow-thus our pedigree beyond that of any Indian restaurant in the Paisley/Renfrewshire area. At the time ,my wish was to make the highest quality Indian cuisine available to the public, and now with the establishment of the Shimla Cottage,i am delighted to offer even greater quality and more extensive choice. The availability of fresh produce is,i believe, the foundation of good Indian food. Here at the Shimla Cottage we pride ourselves on our insistence on the finest quality ingredients, all year round. Fresh herbs and spice, such as coriander and green chillies, are constantly available to us. The quality of produce in Scotland is such that i feel the standard of our dishes on our menu far surpasses even the best to be found in India or Pakistan. I am proud to say that the Scots have a knowledge and appreciation of curries which is often greater than that of many Asian people. The Simla restaurant has long been regarded as the name for Indian cuisine. i believe that the Shimla Cottage is superior still. If you regard yourself as one who appreciates the best in life, then why not indulge your sensibilities at the Shimla Cottage. you will not be disappointed.
