Shapla is great. Whenever we want to order food for a night in this is the first place we go to. They have a variety of vegetarian options and gluten-free is easy (except for, obviously, the naan). The potatoes are delicious, though the paneer is...More

Absolutely love the food from this place. Always quick delivery, never a problem and friendly helpful staff. There was a point in my life not too long ago when I would eat from here 3/4 times a week. Not your typical Indian, this place is...More

Food was very cold although we live 2 minutes down the road. No taste at all in chana puri and no amount of salt helped. Nan was small thin and dry, rice was tasteless, vegetable dhansak had no real taste and hard potatoes and bag...More

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

We ordered from here because our regular place was closed. The food turned up like someone had sat on it (see pics) the sauce was all through the bag and each box was completely squashed, it was cold and inedible. I rang back immediately to...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
