We brought my parents to Shimla Pinks for a curry on Friday night and by the Sunday, my mother had told most people she knew that this was the best curry she'd ever had in her life!
Shimla Pinks is located very close to the main city centre area - just off Deansgate and close to castlefield/Lowry Hotel. The restaurant looks like it has recently been renovated or redecorated and it shows. This isn't a fussy or fancy on-trend restaurant, this is a place where the decoration creates a welcoming and modern environment with as little interference with the eating as possible.
Ah, the food, this is something else. There is a great choice - I've been here and had both set menu and chosen from the full menu and on both occasions i've been surprised by the choice.
I won't describe every meal i've had there, but the dopiaza was beautiful, and i would definitely have the jalfrezi again. the rice is served in large bowls and tastes beautiful - i think lemon scented.
the staff are friendly and will happily recommend food if you are unsure.
