Delicious and authentic. I recommend the lamb - it never fails to disappoint. The onion bhajis are a must!

We went as a group of 8 to this restaurant and I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. As a vegetarian there was plenty of choice and as always with Indian food I opted for my favourite dish Saag Paneer or Palak Paneer. The dish was absolutely beautiful with very gentle spices and real nice hint of... More

We first visited this restuarant in 2013 and couldn't wait to return. On this trip we went to Shivas twice and on both occasions had a great meal. The food is excellant and the service good. You do have to wait quite awhile for your meal but this is because it is freshly prepared. It is well worth the wait.

We enjoyed the lovely delicacies served here. We were a group of 18, about 3 families and we ordered variety of dishes for all and not one complained about the quality and the taste of food. The only disappointment was that the service was slow for which the owner apologized in the end by informing us that one of the... More

this was our 2nd visit in as many weeks,you cannot fault the authentic indian cuisine. You could try many indian resaurants on the island but few if any will match this.The owner although lacking in friendliness makes up for it with his knowledge of the food and excellent memory,as he never writes the orders down.If only he looked as if...

A week ago whilst on a short break to Malta with family we decided to eat Indian. The waiter took the order by trying to remember the numbers on the menu and didn't think it necessary to check the order before getting the food made. We were even charged for the chutney that accompanies the poppadums' and when requesting for... More

Visited this establishment whilst on holiday with my family, was a natural choice as was near to the hotel we were staying at and perfect as we wanted as spice kick (away from the surplus Italian food we had had). Restaurant ambiance was nice, well decorated and cosy and not like a museum as some Indian places can be on... More

We were going to go the another Indian restaurant but walked past this one and thought we would try this instead. The staff were polite and attentive. I had chicken kadai which was really nice. Husband opted for chicken jalfrezi. He usually eats vindaloo at home. This dish was hotter! We had to mix the two dishes together. The flavours... More
