The Shimla Cottage was a works Christmas dinner night out, now normally I don’t like to review any meals someone has treated me to just in case it’s not nice and it makes it hard to do a review on how I really feel.

Well,….This was a nice meal so here is the review.

I don’t normally go to Coatbridge, I tend to visit Glasgow or Edinburgh more so I didn’t know anything about Shimla.

On arrival we were welcomed and shown to our seats, and left for a minute then asked if we wanted any drinks while we looked at the menu. Once everyone got their drinks, it was time to order.

Starter :

Chana Puri
Sweet & Sour chickpeas wrapped in a pan fried light fluffy pancake


When I ordered I was asked if I want sweet or sour sauce with this, so I opted for sweet (I thought more of a dipping sauce or something).

This was different from how I normally get this dish in Indian restaurants, the sauce was a nice touch but it made a nice plain dish very sweet.

Main :

Chicken Tikka Masala
Chicken cooked tikka style, simmered in a cream with yogurt sauce giving an excellent mild dish


I had this with rice, and I have to say this was really good. Full of flavour and very nicely cooked.

Overall : 

I didn’t include any prices as this was a works Christmas dinner, but you can check out the website for all costs.

Overall my first experience here was very positive, the food was nice, and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. Would I go back? Yes, but as I said I am not really in Coatbridge very often but it’s one to keep in my mind if and when I do.
