Came her with a group of friends. We ordered so much food. The food and drinks came on time. The service was absolutely amazing. I liked the Indian bar girl who served us the drinks. Will come here again.

14 year anniversary with wife, as a family all went there for evening meal. Ordered food and drinks...ok so far!

Asked for jug of water twice.
Food was too sweet and bland.
The veg curry was same sauce as chicken curry - acquired taste!

Bill came, over priced, stomach was upset and still hungry...

Avoid restaurant at all costs!

Excellent food supported by the best waiting staff ever. They were fabulous when my wife asked to move tables.
We will be back next time we are in Leicester.

My girlfriend said that we hadn't been for an Indian meal for ages and wished we could. Shimla Pinks was the perfect answer (thanks TripAdvisor reviewers!).
Parking is often a bit of an issue in that part of Leicester, but you can usually find something safe with a little effort...as we did.
When we arrived (7.15pm on a Saturday) the restaurant was very busy (as expected) and our table wasn't quite ready (no big surprise!). We were seated around 7.30 in a good position by the windows. The waiter soon came to give us the menu and take a drink order. We also took up the offer of Poppadoms and pickles.
This was the only point in the evening where we weren't bowled over. The drinks took a while, although the Poppadoms came quickly. We then waited a good 20 minutes or more to have our full order taken, even though others had come in and been served after us.
The food however was cracking! Everything was beautifully cooked and of excellent quality. Our main courses were huge portions, so no complaints. My Byriani would have fed 2! We were in fact so full that we asked to take the remainder away. We saw that others had done this....and the staff were more than happy to help (they were all great by the way!) I therefore enjoyed round 2 on Sunday!
Overall, you should definitely go. The restaurant deserves its high ranking within Leicestershire food venues. Just don't be surprised by its popularity and potentially its non Formula 1 speed of service. Think of it as an experience and not just food, then you won't be upset. We would happily go again!
