I found the staff brash, a little too cocksure of a reputation that they think they may have built up.
No alcohol is a good start - staying true to their religion. Most of the restaurants in Bradford don't serve alcohol.
Avoid the table up against the wall, with the large "box" intruding in to one side of the table.
We managed to swerve around the popadoms (70p each) and pickle tray (£2.95) - despite the waiter asking a couple of times.
I went for the Mixed Kebab (£3.50) starter - thermically it was tepid, spice wise, it was very bland. A poor offering.
Maybe the Chicken Pathia (£5.75) would redeem the restaurant? The curry was served in a minuscule dish, a very small portion indeed. The curry itself was acceptable, not great, not poor, just ok.
Two Chapattis (80p each) is what I like to eat my curry with. These were excellent, large, hot and a nice texture - I recommend these.
On reflection, I thought the Shimla was pretty poor.
Must try harder boys!
