The Shapla has probably been on the go longer than any other Darlington curry house.
It's nothing special inside compared to some but it is clean and I would rate the food as average to average plus. They do a good deal on Thursday, Friday and Sundays - 5 course special for £8.95 and they also do a similar off for these days for takeaways. The staff is extremely good and helpful.
They don't do deliveries what is a little strange but if the order is £30 plus then they normally will deliver.
Don't laugh as it's strange to mention but they make there own chips what are really good and because of this I can normally please most of the family.
Overall this is a good Indian what offers some good deals and is one of my regulars.
This place is looking a bit tired now since the opening of more modern Indian's in Darlington. Despite this prices remain very reasonable and the waiting staff very friendly.
Had a passanda which was tasty and but the winner was the onion bhaji for starter.
To be honest I would not take someone here if I was trying to impress but for a night out with mates is fine,
