Having already been turned away from three other establishments on a busy Bank Holiday weekend, my wife and I decided to try the Shilam before abandoning our search for dinner. Thankfully, despite being busy, they quickly set a table to accommodate us. The food was tasty and fairly priced for the quality of it. Worth a visit.

Went as part of a birthday group, and seated in a separate part of the restaurant which I found a little cramped and cold. Service was quite slow and whilst the food was nice it wasn't as excellent as I'd been led to expect.

We had a takeaway chicken tikka masala plain nan and chicken omelette and chips. The masala was nice and the nan was nice, I enjoyed it. My partner liked the omelette she had some of my Masala as well and she said it had a nice taste. I was 3 miles away and it cost £17. I would have food... More

Went on last night of Holiday in Aber. Nothing amazing nothing bad. Got what it said on menu. If this place was at home would probably use for take away.

Tasty food, good service and a nice environment. Only negative is that the menu is rather expensive!

Wouldn't advise this place. The totally ignored us the whole time we were in . It was a buffet , we asked them repeatedly to remove the plates we has our starter on, but they didn't. We ended up putting the dirty plates on another table . It seemed to be a problem to bring us clean plates too. We... More

We visited this restaurant for a family meal. We had our to daughters with us. The meals were reasonably priced, the did smaller portions for children, although no specific children's menu there were English options on the menu that were available in child size portions. It is easy accessible and parking is near by.

It was interesting to compare this Indian restaurant from our last visit in August 2010. The portions are smaller, the rice portion very small, the dining area is now more dirty than before - our seats were so stained from food I needed to put a serviette on the seat before sitting down! The service was rushed and a bit... More

Do not even think of ordering a take away from the Shilam in Aberystwyth. £30.00 later and we were still hungry! We ordered our meal and were told to collect in 30 minutes. When we arrived the bag was on the counter awaiting collection. At the time we were pleased as it did not entail having to wait. When we... More
