I used the Just Eat app for the first time, oh I hear you say, so do I. Well personally this was a farce and a waste of time and money! I had an email saying the delivery would be at 1815, at 1825 I called the restaurant only to be told my order left 6-8 minutes ago. So there... More

My husband and I went to Shapla last month for my birthday. A few people had recommended it to us. Well.. We have never been so disappointed with an Indian meal! Apart from the cramped restaurant and the sticky floor caked in grease. The food wasn't good. We both love spicy food but my husband's curry was far to spicy... More

This was our second visit and can honestly say all the food was excellent once again. You can take your own drinks and glasses are provided. The restaurant is clean and inviting and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. We have not tried a take away yet but will certainly give it a go. In our opinion the... More

By far one of the best Indians my husband and I have had. Beautiful flavouring and always piping hot when delivered. Always delivered within a reasonable time too. Excellent!

Visited as a group of 12 for a Christmas do and had a lovely time. The food and service were both great. It didn’t take too long to serve us all either, looking forward to our next visit.
