Boldmere has so many Indian restaurants.. They're all pretty good but I think this is the best. It's very busy at the weekend but has a good busy atmosphere perfect for families and groups. It's not the cheapest but quality is never cheap (just ask any Mercedes owner!). They do take away and delivery too so you have no decent... More

I've been using this place since it opened and although I regularly use other restaurants, I still think this is the best on the high street. Try the Nihari, but make sure you ask for extra cinnamon! I always get great service from Dil and Faz so try it out, you won't be disappointed.

We were moved upstairs where it was cold and draughty and where the service was slow to non-existent despite our early booking a week earlier - this was mid-week!!

We normally like Simla but we ended up sitting upstairs near the front. There was just ourselves and another small family group. We were all freezing cold and sat with our coats on. Despite telling the waiter nothing improved as it appears that, because of the heater as you come in the door, the door handle gets too hot and... More

First impressions were that the restaurant was not very inviting. Very small and very cold, not cosy at all. Nevertheless we decided to give it a try as the prices seemed reasonable. The food was VERY poor. I had a biriyani and it was so tasteless I had to add loads of salt to make it edible. My husband had... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times now and i thought it was time for a review. One of the main attractions is space. Its a lot less cramped than other Indian restaurants in the area. Which i feel makes the whole dining experience more private and enjoyable. The staff are very polite snd unobtrusive. The food is... More
