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.

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.

Went for a meal, Easter Sunday. Lovely to see the food it`s still one of the best I had and I go to many Indian restaurants but I find the Shilam to be the best! We will be back at the end of May :)
