About Us

Shimla spice brings you the very best of Indian hospitality and cuisine at your door-step. Shimla spice stays true to the culinary culture and influences of India. Great food, inspiring ambience and friendly service is all yours for taking. 

Shimla spice restaurant was greatly influenced by the city of Shimla in Himachal Pradesh, India. A popular tourist destination, Shimla is often referred to as the "Queen of Hills," a term coined by the British. Located in the north-west Himalayas, the city of Shimla is draped in forests of pine, rhododendron and oak.

The city is famous for its buildings styled in tudorbethan and neo-gothic architecture dating from the colonial era. Shimla is connected to the city of Kalka by one of the longest narrow gauge railway routes still operating in India, the Kalka-Shimla Railway.

Unlike much of European, and far eastern cuisine, the best Indian food is not found in conventional restaurants in India, but in peoples' homes, Maharajas palaces, and humble wayside stalls. We have travelled the length and breadth of India to secure recipes from traditional cooks, and build on them. Therefore some of our dishes are generally not available in conventional restaurants in India let alone in the UK.

The flavours of real Indian food in Indian homes are generated by complex combinations of freshly prepared spice mixes, prepared freshly and ground individually for each dish using special stone grinders. These are then cooked by Chef Ahmed and his team in a carefully orchestrated sequence. We prepare these dishes authentically and with fresh ingredients in the same manner, with no short cuts.

Our business grows through our customers. If you are extremely satisfied with our food and service please tell others, if not please let us know. Your feedback is very important to us as we strive to provide the best quality of food and service.
