Last night bank holiday Monday myself and my partner decided not to cook and to order food from shipa, absolute disappointed. We waited and hour and half and had to ring twice to chase our food order, once it finally arrived it was cold and flavourless, the korma seemed to be watery and an odd paste that had seemed to...

Having heard good things, we visited Shipa this weekend. Initially things went well. Greeted warmly. However a wait of nearly 50 minutes to have main course after starter, later arrivals being served first, my pint being taken away long before it was finished after my starter, mediocre service and a rather unflavoured Pathia meant we left without leaving a tip...

We order from here at leader once a month from the set menu for one and it's lovely! It's well priced and nothing is ever to much for them if you want to tweak the menu abit to your liking Our favourite is their lamb biriyani dish and they always deliver in time given.

As bank holiday we tried Sunday buffet , it offers a really good price meal and as usual shipa quality good , freshly cooked to order and tasty. They happy to change spice levels in any dish. The drinks are pricey and push bill up a bit but a starter main side for tenner is great value

Food lukewarm, curry bland, byriani very plain, small amount meat. Veg curry tasted like frozen veg in a plain sauce. No spice or heat to the dansak. Really disappointed, won't be using again.
