Honest and genuine food, generous portions. Lovely flavours, spicy but not too hot. Service with a smile, always. Thank you.

We called in here on a Friday evening without a booking and despite the restaurant being busy we were welcomed in and offered a table. We were given menus but also told about the special where you paid £11.95 for 4 courses and got to try a lot of different things. We were sold without even looking at the menu.... More

I don't usually like buffets in restaurants, but this one was excellent. The food was hot and delicious and the service was excellent, with some food being brought to the table. The meal was also excellent value for money. I'd definitely go back if I was in Leicester and wanted a vegetarian/vegan Indian meal.

They are good, I've been here few times with my friends and all of them were satisfied. However I didn't find here extraordinary, but maybe it's because I prefer non-vegetarian Indian food.

We regularly eat at Shivalli and have never had a bad experience. Consistently high quality food that's tasty and service is always proactive in serving dosa or puri. My brother had Shivalli cater for his wedding, they're really that good. It's great to see that they've maintained prices at value for money level which should keep this restaurant alive for... More

Visited on saturday evening...there is the option of going for the buffet or the alacarte...we went for the buffet. The curries were delicious and of a high standard compared to other buffets. Puris and dosas are freshly made to order. The staff were pleasant and attentive. Will go back again.

I am a regular visitor to few of my favourite restaurants in and around where I live. This one has been always my absolute favourite. The taste of food here is almost similar to home food only because of the pain and care given towards home style restaurant cooking. Many Indian restaurants I visit actually don't cater us that authentic... More

This place is really something special, I and family choose this place as the food and service has always been excellent each time we had been. For my brother’s wedding reception, we had non-alcoholic cocktails and champagne. For the food we had several varieties', of starters', mains' and a dessert. We were completely happy with everything. The masala dhosas were... More

I visited on Saturday 12 July 2014. My friend had come visiting from London and wanted somewhere vegetarian to eat. I'm so glad we came here. He visits once a year. Decor is lovely. There are many restaurants in Leicester. However this is the best period, the food is delicious and fresh ! The dosas are truly outstanding. Not forgetting... More
