We were told it would take an hour which is fine as your supposed to cook for fresh, it arrived within ten minuets from another place called the Gherka but still with our details, we were charged far more then the menu price of The Shapla. We couldn't eat any of the food it was vile........ The chicken tikka masala... More

If I could rate it less than one star I would. I have ordered from these a couple of time and have had nothing but problems. This time I ordered and selected a time which I also added in the notes so they couldn't miss it, the delivery turned up 45 minutes early. To which the delivery drivers excuse was... More

This was our first experience of this restaurant. We ordered a home delivery via Curries Online and weren't disappointed. We had Ami Chicken Jhul (one of their specialities) lovely flavoured sauce with lots of chicken breast, prawn Korma, very nice Sag Aloo, coconut rice and Badami Gobi (cauliflower). The food arrived very promptly and was piping hot. Will definitely use... More

The telephone experience whilst ordering the meal was good. The meal was brought around to our house in the time which they said it would. The service was pleasant and friendly. I would not rave about the food. It was ok. Not good but not bad either. The price is average. The tandoori chicken was tasty but not a lot... More

Couldn't find the menu for our usual provider so searched the web for an alternative. Found the Shapla. Apparently been here for 25 years. Heaven knows why. Even being charitable every dish of the 4 mains and 6 sides were very poor. All bland with no hint of spice or herbs. The garlic chicken turned out to be onion chicken... More

This curry house has been in East Grinstead, under the same owner Abul Suton, almost as long as we have and since it opened in 1985 has consistently provided the best indian food in the area. It is here that we learnt to experiment beyond a tandoori and rice and with the help of Abul we have widened our taste... More

The Shapla is part of Curries On Line, so you place your order on the web site, pay and then its delivered. We were even given 10% off our first meal, would definitely use this site again. However our meal was not up to the usual Shapla standards, I had a Prawn Curry and my daughter a Chicken Tikka Masala... More
