Ordering a takeaway to then be told they'd be a 40min wait we were ok to go ahead with the order, it's a busy night of the year! However after arriving to collect there was still a ongoing wait of over a hour!!!! No apologies, information just a long que of others waiting for a table or a take away!... More

Amazing food, not too expensive, great service . Best dish to order is the King Prawn Saffron. Also the Cobra beer. Definitely I recommend this place.

We are regular customers at the Shilam restaurant and must say that the standard of the food is particularly high for Aberystwyth. Wonderful curries at very reasonable prices cooked freshly to order. Would especially like to pay a compliment to Ronaldo, the main front of house waiter, for his consistently polite and excellent service. He always greets customers with a... More

We decided to try the online ordering system for a delivery which was fairly easy to use but in the end had to phone up as there was a problem at the payment stage. The one downside of the online ordering menu is that there aren't any photos or descriptions so you need to know your Indian dishes.We ordered two... More

Used to be our favourite Indian restaurant. Has gone downhill slightly. Poppadoms were not so tasty and onion and mango accompaniment not so fresh. Wife's Malayan curry lacked flavour.

Out of habit had always gone to shilam for curry (v. limited choice in aber of course) but recently went to light of asia and it's so much better! Curries here have an okay flavour but tend to be some chunks of meat/veg swimming in oily sauce, like they keep everything separate and just mix together to serve. But main... More

Whilst the food was adequate both in terms of qualty and quantity, unfortunately this could never be said for the service that was second to being dreadul. The food was delivered to table in a very lack-lustre manner and that was the last we saw of the waiter until we were due to pay. No call back to ask if... More

Food was great and so were the prices. We requested a home delivery so not sure of the ambience but delivery was quick.
