The restaurant was busy and we only ordered mains but still had to chase up, the food was good. Seating was rather tight and was quite easy to become involved in the conversation being held on the next table :-(

Walked past on Saturday afternoon, liked what we saw and phoned for a booking that evening. We were told that they were very busy but would accommodate us. They were very busy, but took us to a nice table. In spite of the rush, the waiting staff were charming, attentive and friendly. And then the food!, both myself and my... More

Booked late on a busy Saturday night when the spring fair (beer festival) was on. They were honest with us with lead times and kept to it. We arrived to a packed restaurant but were shown to our table and offered drinks. Drinks arrived promptly and when they did the waiter took our food order. The food was first class... More

We had just arrived in Ludlow for a long weekend and discovered this place whilst looking for a place to eat. We were welcomed by the really friendly staff who remained very attentive through the evening. The menu is extensive and the meals have that something extra that makes them better than the average Indian food. All meals that were... More

I have dined here several times and every time has been faultless, we dine as a four with different palates and without exception all plates are scoffed in full. The food is at a level that elevates this to way above the norm. I cannot imagine a trip to Ludlow without a visit here. The service is attentive, the food... More

This is my second visit to Shapla, it really is excellent! The staff are so friendly and welcoming. the food is so exciting with a slightly different approach to what we tend to think of as Indian cuisine. The menu is extensive and a take away service is also offered.

Excellent food & great value for money. We had chicken kurma & balti tropical - both great. We added side orders cauliflower Baha'i & bindi bhaji - both great. The sweet chilli & lemon rice was fabulous. We had ours as a takeaway but the staff were great & very polite. If you're in Ludlow & want an Indian restaurant... More

We hadn't booked but were shown to a table in the window from where we had a lovely vista of the town. The service was excellent, the waiters were attentive but not obsequious. The fppd was excellent and great value for money. I whole heartedly recommend this restaurant.

Having just arrived in the area we ventured into Ludlow for the very first time on a quiet Monday evening. We'd been warned that a lot of restaurants in the town were closed on a Monday, but Shapla's colourful glow pulled us in and we were immediately inspired to have a curry. This is no bog-standard British curry house, the... More
