One of the best meals of my life!

We used to come to Shivali every week 5 years ago when my husband and I were in University, so as we are in Leicester for work for 1 night a trip to Shivali was a must! The food is outstanding, even better than I had remembered. A very good selection of vegetarian (and many vegan) dishes, as a... read more

First visit. Considering I am very much a carnivore this was a most excellent vegetarian meal. The dosas are freshly made and the rest of the buffet menu was 1st class. Friendly service. I shall go there again.

This is a great place for South Indian food. Saag paneer in particular is excellent. Staff are extremely friendly and really make your experience a nice one. I don't hesitate to recommend this place - good food , clean , excellent service .

As you enter, it gives you a relief in the midst of non vegetarian available all around. Good value as well as 100% vegetarian and delicious south Indian food. The concept of this Indian buffet is really brilliant. The staff is also good. You can find all sort of south Indian specials like dosa etc. Always good for a cheap... More

Me and my friends have food here quite often. Friendly staff, nice ambience and good food makes it a recommended resturant. Compared to the other vegetarian resturants near by the food quality is good and consistent. Their buffect is a must try. They make one of the best dosas in the vicinity.

Hard to fault the Saturday evening buffet. The food was full of flavour, they brought extra breads and pancakes (Dosa) all in the fixed price, so it was excellent value. Will go again.
