took some to-go order for veg briyani. But did not like the food too much. Also there was issue with their card machines so has to wait to get it working.

We asked for Lamb Boti kebab and they did note even ask, how do we want. I like them well done and they came our Rare.. Lam Rogan... More

Decided to meet a old friend here for lunch on a Sunday. The place is located in downtown Mountain View. There is a city parking lot, with FREE 2 hour parking, just half a block away from the restaurant. It was lightly occupied with people still pouring in for eating. They had several options on their weekend menu. Around 6... More

Sunday lunch buffett is amazing. The price is very afordable especially when you consider the quality and taste of the food. Perfect for the meat eater and the vegitarian no matter what your budget is. Even good as a lunch date.

My wife and I visited Mt.View this past weekend and had dinner at Shiva's. My wife has dietary restrictions and our server was very helpful getting her meal prepared. The dinner was excellent.

We did takeout, so can't comment on the service, but the food is tasty-ey-hey! Especially those samosas. And the malai kofta. Gimme summa dat! The rest of the food was really good too, but had a lot more ginger, cloves, bay leaf, cardamom, fennel seed, and other unusual spices than I'm not super used to in Indian food. I think... More

This place is mostly crowded on weekends so a prior reservation will be a nice idea. Service is okay and ambiance is good here. As with most of the Indian restaurants in Bay area, this restaurant also misses the mark in providing authentic Indian taste for vegetarian dishes. My review is only for the vegetarian food, have no idea about... More

Ordered a takeout (carry out) from an Indian restaurant in Mountain View and I went to great pains to explain that I need the food to be gluten-free and I even called the restaurant back when there were a few fried potato-based chips on top of one of the chicken dishes (perhaps fried in the same oil as other gluten...

I am not very knowledgeable about Indian food, but I always enjoy it when I have had it, from now on I hope to become an expert by visiting Shiva over and over until I understand the dishes. The service was great, I always enjoy fine dining and Shiva definitely offers a fine dining experience. The offer beer wind and... More

After a bad experience on another indian restaurant on same strip, we decided to try out food at Shiva's. Again this place is costly compare to other indian food joints but they score well on Service, food quality. We had Tandoori chicken, Chicken Tikka Masala, Palak Panner, Biryani, and Naans and everything was good.
