The lunchtime buffet is superb in every way. The food is excellent, the service is polite and attentive but not intrusive, and the meals are the most amazing value for money that I have ever come across.

Found this excellent restaurant by searching on Google. We all had the special which the waiter recommended - a thali offering a range of vegetarian curries with two chapati served on a metal tray. The starter was a dosa filled with lentils. All served quickly and efficiently with great customer service.

We went to this restaurant on a busy Saturday night, having booked the table the previous week. I am glad that I booked, because as we arrived there were people queuing for a table. We did not have to wait long to be seated.The food was amazing and delicious. Will back soon.

We are fairly regular in our visits to Shivali. The food is always good & tasty. The fruit cocktail is our favourite drink. The ambience and service is excellent. This time we ordered for catering for a home function and they delivered perfectly tasty food. To top it all the pricing is very reasonable.

I made a reservation at this restaurant on a Saturday evening for 9.00pm. We arrived on time and kept getting told our table would be ready in 5 mins. 50 minutes later we were shown our table. The staff tried terribly hard to avoid our gaze in case we required anything, and we did not feel very welcome. Eventually after... More

Lovely little place serving genuine Udupi(a region in Karnataka, Southern India) style food - tasty, clean flavours. As for the weekday buffet - probably the best value in all of Leicester!

We had first tried their thali which was excellent though a bit expensive if you consider it's a veg thali. Next time we had the buffet which was not upto our expectations.We were looking for more variety.

It has an excellent selection of Vegitarian dishes and at the weekends a buffet. From my understanding the good is traditional in the South Indian style, and when ordering from the buffet they are happy to serve you more pancakes etc from the kitchen, freshly made. The service is friendly and there's a good selection of tradition Indian drinks. It's... More
