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

I've been here countless times now, often for the lunch time buffet before heading to the rugby at the Welford Road stadium just up the road - as was the case on this occasion. My Dad and I were off to the rugby so all you can eat authentic Indian food to get us in the mood was exactly what... More

I've only ever been here for the lunch time buffet and I've only every been impressed by this place. I don't usually expect much from buffets but Shivalli is different. The food is excellent quality and extremely tasty. I am not a fan of veg but if anywhere can convert me then Shivalli can. It's great value considering it includes... More

Went for a relaxed Sunday buffet. The food was fresh, varied and very high quality, the breads made on the spot, the service was excellent and friendly. And the value for money was exceptional. It stresses it is vegan-friendly and lives up to that with a huge variety of vegan dishes. Overall this was a gem of a restaurant.

I go here quiet regularly as I have been working in the area for nearly 4 years, the food is always v.nice. The staff are friendly and always accommodating even when you can't really tell them how many people you are expecting! Though it's quiet cosy when full (quite often) and they don't have their own parking facility. For the... More

I have been to this reastaurant 3 times now. It was nice experience everytime. Being a south Indian, I am really happy to get authentic South Indian food at Shivalli. They really do good idly and medhu vada.

First visit with family for lunch. Tried lunch buffet. Simple and clean, south Indian vegetarian food. Genuine Udupi food. Authentic home made flavour's. Friendly staff, very pleasant and helpful. You will get to see Karnataka hospitality. You get exactly same food and flavour in Bangalore!!! Value for money.
