    The lively crowd says it all. This place is popular. Try a few dishes and you'll see why. Want spice? You got it! Crispy bindi is great, jardaloo lamb and chicken tikka dishes are delish, the galubjamun is superb. A selection of local beers would be a nice addition to the menu, but if you ask for the chai masala, you will finish your meal on a very pleasant note.

    Abdul was especially generous and kind, and of course all the other staff. We had a lovely experience here and we will definitely be returning. Shelly is utterly delightful and extremely welcoming. I could not recommend it more. Also the food was 10/10

    Abseloutely great experience. Food was truly amazing and the staff was so friendly. A bit crowded and noisy, but nothing you can't live with.

    An excellent service with great food. Book up early as it is popular. We went as a group and there was no one who didn’t enjoy their meal so for me the quality is in all meals.

    We walked in on a Thursday evening when the restaurant was packed. They didn't have a table but took my number to let me know when one became availible, we were back and seated in 20mins. We ordered the lamb shank, another lamb curry and a paneer side and every dish was excellent - overall the best Indian we've had for a very long time.

    We went for an evening meal while staying for a few nights in Newcastle. Turned up just as they opened and even though we hadn't booked ahead they got us a table. The meal was delicious,the decor tasteful and the staff couldn't have been more welcoming,helpful and friendly. Will definitely go again when in Newcastle.

    Smashing little Indian, just off the quayside, a real gem. Had a family get together and this was the ideal place. Cosy, compact, amazing décor and fantastic staff. Super menu with some great dishes on there, definitely something for everyone. Food was amazing, and the presentation was stunning. Everyone went away more than happy, would advise booking as its a popular little place and quite a few people were turned away.

    Eating out on a Saturday night anywhere in Newcastle will require booking (or a long wait) so booking here is highly recommended. This is a very popular restaurant so will be busy during peak time. Food is excellent, great tasting dishes and presented well. You won't get massive portions of muck here. Just the best quality served by excellent staff who are very accommodating. I'd highly recommend

    First visit to the restyled Simla. Our previous visits were over 30 years ago and the same family still run the restaurant. The food and service were excellent. The Highly recommended.

    Turned up on a busy Friday night but we were accommodated nonetheless, a very short wait. The food here is a very high standard on presentation and flavour, and service is friendly and fast. Not a typical curry house, contemporary menu and really interesting dishes. Flavours are strong but well balanced, especially heat levels; fresh tasting so hot but not stodgy. Decor, fixtures and furnishings are good quality throughout, cleanliness good. Spoke with the owner, sounds like they have been trading for decades and it's easy to see why.

    This place has to be THE best Indian restaurant in Newcastle, not only for its fantastic food but also the staff,they are so friendly and professional at the same time ! I can’t recommend this place enough.... the only problem is it should be bigger so that more people can enjoy the experience.

    After a very long day travelling we just fancied Indian food and found the wonderful Simla restaurant. We had no reservation but they fitted us in for a 90 mins slot before the table was reserved and we are SO glad they did! The whole place has a very contemporary, stylish feel and the playlist is Indian/fusion/Buddha Bar- really good. Service is excellent and staff are helpful and then of course the food...! Absolutely delicious - I’ve had lots of Indian meals over many years but the thing that really set this apart was the lightness of the food - no heavy/stodgy ingredients ( lovely new potatoes and cauliflower which still has just enough bite in the Aloo Ghobi) no heavy oils and the delicacy of the spices- lovely balance - you could just taste the fenugreek with the potatoes and there was a lovely anise taste at the end of the Lamb Tadka. We really enjoyed it and will certainly book to go unpack!

    We went in on a Tuesday night without reservation, luckily there was a table for two left, other than that the whole place was booked full! The staff were super friendly and accommodating. But let's not forget about the food, it was delicious! The lamb kebab as starters: superb seasoning and tender juicy minced lamb. The Curry's we had as mains were wonderful as well. When in Newcastle looking for a bite: I highly recommend Simla!

    I do love a good quality curry and while visiting Newcastle on business I noted all of the very good reviews for Simla's. I would recommend booking a table in advance as the place was absolutely jumping when I went (admittedly a Saturday night) whilst it isnt the biggest in terms of size, tables, etc. The staff were all excellent, well mannered, humourous and polite throughout our time here and the courses were served up in good time as well. Both of our curries were sensational, as was our garlic chilli chicken starter and the price was reasonable as well for what you got. I'd definitely recommend Simla's to anyone that likes a good curry.
