Shapla

Gourmet Indian restaurant.

A Ludlow staple for more than 20 years.

In the eighties it was renowned for its late-night vindaloos, but these days it's the creative, ever evolving menu that tempts in diners.

Three types of curry are the foundation of the Shapla restaurant menu: balti, tandoori and biryani. Each curry can be cooked in a variety of ways, so the balti makhani is laced with the sweet flavours of almond and butter, whilst balti chilli has a spicy kick. Shapla's tandoori dishes, meanwhile, hark back to the traditional Indian method of cooking curry in clay ovens, when meat was marinated in spices and herbs. The chef at the Shapla restaurant has a whole menu dedicated to his signature dishes. Scallops and ginger are used in the podina adha. Diners opting for the Kalidash puri aam can expect a bit of extra zing, thanks to the added mango and ginger. The starters on the Shapla menu are both traditional and original. Coriander potato cakes and pan-friend tilapia fish fillets vie for attention, as do the always popular onion bhajis and mint-cooled sheek kebabs. Chic d├ęcor finishes off the Shapla restaurant perfectly. Bright white walls are lit with coloured lights, and the tall, arching windows look out over Broad Street. This road's colourful timber buildings, medieval gate and beautiful church mark the centre of Ludlow. To top things off, the Norman battlements of Ludlow Castle are just up the road from Shapla. This attractive location is just one of the many reasons to book a meal at Shapla today.
