Excellent vegetarian restaurant.

Excellent lunch consisting of a three course buffet. Starter, mix of 3 curries for mains, and desert. Delicious and excellent value - £8.50 with beer and coffee. Very friendly and helpful service. Go easy though. It's easy to eat too much!

Me and my husband had dinner at Shivalli today and we absolutely loved it. We had idli and chilli paneer for starters both of which were gorgeous. For mains we had spinach curry and vegatable biryani together with mysore masala dosa. The atmosphere was cosy. Nothing was too much or too litte. The restaurant was not too busy so the... More

Been here a few times. Never fails to amaze. Lovely Food. Service is fantastic. All the staff are so friendly and know the menu well. Menu is very reasonably priced. Will be coming back here again.

While this place was very good on our last visit, I have to say it wasnt quite as good as previous visits over the past few years. We were encouraged to opt for the saturday night buffet, but stuck with ordering from the main menu, as always. The food was very good, the staff friendly and efficient, it was good... More

We went with friends to try this vegetarian restaurant for the first time after it was recommended to us... we were not disappointed. It is only small and is very popular, so booking a table is recommended. They do a menu or a buffet and you can choose which to use. The buffet was our choice and although there wasn't... More

Popped in after a day's shopping in town and picked up a take away. I ordered several different curries and sides also. Really enjoyed the food (as did my family) the dishes all varied in taste and the breads and sides were perfect! I didn't think the place looked much from the outside however inside its lovely and the staff... More

The deceit of the management regarding the price really detracts from the food, which is a real shame. See photo of advert placed outside the main door, advertising buffet price of £4.95, with the 'terms & conditions' blanked out. Apparently, one is supposed to read the fine print on some notice displayed inside the restaurant to find out that actual... More

Confused? Well. I'm not vegetarian, but would without hesitation recommend this place. Clean and fresh tasting food, sundries to the table (bread) fresh and hot. Loved it. Simple.

A hidden gem on Welford Rd. Best Indian food (& I've had loads) ever. Very friendly staff where nothing is to much trouble and it is very reasonably priced. I can't wait to go back.
