Food was very tasty there. I ate spicy chicken and palakpanir with nan for lunch. But serve was so slow. If you are hurry, you can't enjoy the taste.

Dined in Shivas this week, place was almost empty, was definitely not SERVICE with a smile. My colleague and I felt uncomfortable from start till end. Food was just OK , the only thing which was OK, was the wine, which we choose. I live in Malta and work in the media and like dining out, this place was dreadful.... More

Be aware while ordering Kingfisher beer ..u will pay 5.20e for a cheap Bavaria lager. After seing the dark color and tasting this joke i asked the waiter if he could bring me the bottle with my next pint. Unfortunately the policy is no bottles on the table. Of course wine and water bottle were perfectly fine. Food was tasteless... More

Smart place with a fantastic menu! All the people I've taken there have remarked on the authenticity and the rich flavours. It's not a very large place so I suggest booking.

Shivas is by far the best Indian Restaurant in Malta. Top quality dishes especially the lamb & superb service. This was a great dining experience. Well done to the whole team :)
