Shimul Indian Restaurant at Meadowhead

Anybody know what the future holds for this place?

 

I live over the road from it and noticed last week that the shutters had been down for a couple of days. Went over to have a look and there was a small note on the shutter that read "Closed for refurbishment - Re-opening soon".

 

However there is also a large sign in the flat window above saying "Shop For Sale"

 

Has it already been sold? Are they refurbishing with hope of getting a better price for it?

 

They do quite nice food but the restaurant barely had anyone dining in it, even at weekends, and I've been saying to the wife for the past year that they must be surviving on income from takeaways

I've been told by one or two that it was closed down for food hygiene reasons, although I've not seen or heard anything official to confirm that.

 

Funnily enough there was a misprint in their menu that read "mice cooked in medium spices" instead of mince, so hardly surprising if they were investigated!!

They were investigated over that very same thing, but it was ok, it wasn't a misprint it was genuine mice that were being used, so no problem.

Well that's put me right off Derby :hihi:

 

In the meantime we've been using Kolkatta which is just opposite KFC a bit further down the road. Just as good so far, and had no late deliveries unlike Shimul which regularly took up to 2 hours!

I ordered from Sultan last week (Chesterfield Road, opposite Subway) and would recommend them. Plenty of choice, but I went for the "Chef's Surprise" - basically you choose what meat you want and how spicy you want it and they rustle you up something original!
