Have got takeaways from Shapla a bunch of times and it's usually excellent. This time wasn't that great. The chicken tasted like it had been frozen (was chewy and dense) and the popadoms were a bit chewy (uncooked). Brinjal bhaji was nice though as was...More

Promptly delivered. Genourous portions and very good curries. You could taste the fresh herbs and spices they had used. I'm a bit of a curry obsessive. This is good a carry out as I've had in Edinburgh.

Am I reviewing the same restaurant as some others?? This is the second time we ordered from them and again the meal was great. The lamb tikka was brilliant and not dry (despite what other reviewers said), the basmati rice perfect, the pashwari nan was...More

I don't actually like ordering Indian food I always think you get much better quality by sitting in a restaurant but we were starving and thought we'd try this out. It was delivered within 10 mins of ordering, a good thing? Not really! I'd rather...More

Ordered a take away from here, got a korma, a naan and chicken pakora. Naan was nice, korma wasn't like a korma and half way through my pakora I found a long black hair in my mouth attatched to pakora. I'm blonde and my partner...More

Lastnight we called for a delivery from Shapla and my goodness were we disappointed. After waiting almost 50 minutes to get a takeaway locally on a Monday night, it was the wrong order. We asked for chicken and got lamb. Now, some of you might...More

I have lived in the areafor 6 years. Shapla has generally been a solid takeaway, although service can be a bit cold sometimes. Tonight's post-work biryani was shameful. Rice that tasted stale; small pieces of dry chicken tikka; veg curry where only one piece of...More

I am a longtime regular customer. The menu is varied and interesting, and unlike some takeaways it's not all about heat. The spices and flavours are rich, and you can tell all the herbs and veg are fresh.
