I used to like this fooo in the past Something has changed May be with Covid restrictions Hope situation improves Ordering on the ap is a bit clumsy Have not been to other similar places in last few months, so will be difficult to compare the experience The music was loud, so all the guests talking louder to hear each other. Overall , it was not a great experience for peaceful dinner

It’s great to have a haven of normality in Leicester! The staff at Shimla have thought carefully about how to provide a safe and inviting ambience. And, as always, the food is amazing. Looking forward to next time.,

Our meal was very good as always. Very tasty. The low score for atmosphere does not detract from the fact that Shimla Pinks is a top class establishment serving excellent food however due to the COVID crisis the restaurant was void of customers ( no fault of the restaurant) at the time that we were there which was 5pm

Been many times to Shimla pinks and always enjoyed. One of the best curries in Leicester. Yesterday the food wasn’t as good, got the order a bit wrong, not sure if the due to ordering on the website. Got charged service when all the waiter did was bring the food to table and when asked to pack the leftover the waiter mixed the uneaten naan bread with the already eaten food on plate then bagged it up.. was out of to visit again. Especially as we regularly visit and spend over £100 everytime. We were the only customers in the restaurant which I think is the norm these days.. plus point face recognition temperature scanner and packed up cutlery made up feel safer and the restaurant has taken COVID seriously

Firstly the waiter was no where to be seen when we wanted to pay our bill, after waiting a long time we ended up getting the bill ourselves. We were charged someone else’s bill, the staff didn’t know how to rectify it & me as a customer had to work out the maths & tell him what to do. Very appalling service I would never visit the restaurant again.

We have been told by lots of people how nice the food is here so we decided to give it a go for our Wedding Anniversary. The food was one of the best I've tasted. Will definitely recommend going and we will be back soon. In light of COVID they have a temperature check at the front and sanitizer along with your own pack of cutlery including a sanitizer wipe. Staff are very friendly. Thank you

Enjoyed our meal at Shimla’s however the Tandoori combination sizzler has changed slightly and some items have been substituted. I preferred the dish to how it was before it was altered however staff quickly acted to cook and prepare additional pieces of the dish at my request. We had a very early sitting with no other customers in the restaurant so there wasn’t much of an atmosphere which one would expect. I also noticed that prices had increased but I would assume the reasoning for this was due to having to make changes in the restaurant due to the Covid crisis Would we come back yes, always.....still the best in our opinion.

Excellent food. The restaurant wasn’t very busy, hence the lack of atmosphere.

This was our visit to a restaurant since March so we were a little apprehensive but we where very impressed with the new system and felt very safe but it still felt like an enjoyable night out. We came on the last day of the Eat Out scheme we thought that without the discount it seemed more expensive than before lockdown and wondered if the prices had increased. The food was amazing as it always is but it did feel a little rushed with little time between courses. We will definitely be returning and Shimla Pink remains our favourite Indian restaurant

Staff were excellent and very helpful. The food was delicious, even down to the naan and rice. I last went about 3-4 yrs ago and this was so much better. The service was fantastic. Scanning the QR code thing was not the easiest but everything else was really really top drawer. Thank you

This was my first meal at a restaurant since the lockdown And I was sceptical when I booked but I saw videos and photos on shimla pinks social media page and the measures the management at shimla pinks took in order to ensure customers safety. The staff were really helpful and accommodating. The food was excellent and I would recommend everyone to visit.
