The food was lovely and they accommodated to my dietary needs, even during the buffet time! The staff were really friendly and kept asking if there was anything more we wanted. Great experience!

We've eaten here twice in recent weeks, once in a group of 40 and once with two friends. On both occasions we had the £10 buffet. It;s vegetarian but as other reviewers have commented, you really don;t miss the meat. On offer there's chat, starters and main courses to choose from. Dessert is limited to julab or ice cream. By...

I tried the new Xmas buffet, it is value for the price! It is one of the best in town and served with excellent service. There is wide range of freshly made dosas which waiters will serve to your table as much as you like!!.

We've eaten Shivalli's lunchtime buffet four or five times now. Each time it has been excellent. I really like the 'serve yourself' arrangement. The food is lovely. As other reviewers say, dhosas and puris are also offered to you at your table, fresh from the kitchen. Fantastic.The staff are very friendly.It is excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

First impressions of the inside of this restaurant is that its a bit like the inside of a sauna - covered in strips of pine. Asside from the wall covering the place is well worth a visit. I've been here a few times for their lunch buffet. There is a small range of starters and 3 mains and a desert.... More

A visit for lunch was a usual treat both for us and our friends, they were impressed by the quality of the food and the numerous offers of more fresh dosas or pooris! As usual we ate too much and are amazed that they make a profit from the excellent quality and volume of lunches for such a reasonable price.... More

As Leicester Tigers fan I occasionally stay over after a match. I asked a fellow fan to recommend a decent Indian Restaurant and she directed us to Shivalli. We were warmly welcomed and swiftly served up a cold beer. One of the staff then took us through our options and we opted for one of the House Specials. It was... More
