On holiday nearby, found the menu in our cottage which looked good. Unfortunately, having collected our takeaway, we found the food to be bland and tasteless. Hardly a hint of the promised spices. The two vegetable dishes tasted the same. The nan was good! Ordering...over the phone was easy and the service on arrival was good. Sadly, we won't be going back because of the food.More

Meals normally good but not happy with 2 very small meat Samosas for £2.50 - disgraceful!! Poppodums not great either. Called to complain and was told sorry, that's the way it is!!

A flying visit to Lampeter means dinner at the Shapla! First ate here 30 years ago, so pleased it's still going strong. We now visit town every few months and always make sure we eat at the Shapla at least once! Tried some different dishes...this time, vegetarian main courses with rice and nasns, very tasty.More

If your willing to wait 90mins for food, then this is your place, when it did arrive it wasn’t hot, very disappointing, although if you want a takeaway, they seem to prioritise this over everything else.

food is excellent.. But l think you need another chef. as the one in the kitchen must have been off his head with orders tonight..... The restaurant was busy and the takeaway was bloody crazy. Your food is excellent. but don't over stretch your staff....as your customers with bums on seats have to wait.More

Waited for over an hour for food to come , they were far too busy doing takeaway meals. When the food eventually came it was just about warm with far too many onions in it. Everyone looked bored of waiting and the staff were miserable....Won't be going back.More

Booked a table for 9pm on a Saturday night. Shown straight to table. Menu choices v.good as were the prices. V.good quality food and the service was excellent. Only gripe being was the amount of onions in the chilli Baltimore dish to bulk it out....Ended up with 1/2 karai of onions once picked out. Yes balti's do have more onions than your regular curry but not to the extent that were in the dish. Would recommend tho.More

Had a lamb pathia and I must say it was the driest and toughest lamb I have ever eaten. I was asked how was your meal and I explained the lamb issue and suspected it was from a previous night's service. Given apologies and they...knocked £1.50 off the bill. The young server girl was the only plus of the dining experience.More
