The service was okay though they forgot to put serving spoons and table spoons on the table. However the food was not up to scratch. We ordered Paneer curries, Daal, Jalfrezi and all of them were very sweet. None of it was spicy at all even though the dishes had 2 chillies put next to it to indicate the hotness of the dish. We had rasmalaai and icecream for desert which were absolutely beautiful. For someone who likes their indian food spicy and full of flavours - I wouldnt recommend Shimla Pinks.

I visit India, Delhi and Mumbai, often as well as other cities. I eat in local restaurants rather than westernised hotels. The food here was as good and authentic as the food I eat there. Portions are excellent and the prices good value. Definitely a place I shall visit again and again.

Lovely meal. Excellent portion sizes. Would definitely recommend. Service good, tho difficult to summon at bill paying time. The only reason is 5/6 is that charged us £6 for poppadoms - 6 people - but only 2 trays of pickles which we ran out off.

Great time and great service. Food comes out quite quickly and portions are good enough to share. Was impressed that the waiter bought the card machine over with him which saved some time once we had finished.
