Buffet style Indian cuisine restaurant in the heart of downtown Mountain View. Nice interior, conveniently located close to plenty of public parking space, and right on main street - Castro. The food is definitely decent, but not outstanding.

I've been there for dinner only once. It was nice. I usually go at lunchtime for the buffet. There is a nice selection of dishes. Their naan is amazing. It's brought to your table freshly made, rather than as an item in the buffet. The service is pleasant; the price is reasonable. Highly recommend.

Came here with friends for their weekday lunch buffet. If you're vegetarian, this is a good place in downtown MV. Lots of options for everyone. The dishes are very heavy on the sauces. After all, it is Indian food. For the price and value, it's hard to beat. I wouldn't come here more than once a month only if I... More

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
