My husband and I went to Shapla last month for my birthday. A few people had recommended it to us. Well.. We have never been so disappointed with an Indian meal! Apart from the cramped restaurant and the sticky floor caked in grease. The food wasn't good. We both love spicy food but my husband's curry was far to spicy... More
