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.

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.

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

Ordered a takeaway for a party of 7 and collected on time. Everyone was very happy with the dishes they ordered and we all felt it was good value at about £10pp including half a nann each. This place serves food that is very fresh and clean compared to some indian restaurants and the flavour was good. My only negative... More

I have been here a few times and each time the food has been delicious. Service was good and friendly and prices reasonable. I do like a hot curry and asked for mine to be made extra hot, however it was fairly mild. This did not however detract from a delicious meal, I just know to let them know I'm... More
