Four of us went for lunch - the food was good enough, but nothing special. The service was good, and we liked the patio seating. The inside is kind of cramped. But the prices are on the high side for what you get.

A large menu but when you look you see it's basically the same items over and over in different forms (buffalo chicken salad, buffalo chicken sandwich, buffalo chicken platter, buffalo chicken omelette, buffalo chicken wrap....). The food is really tasteless and the service is just odd.

I recommended this restaurant in a previous review. However I since have been back with company with the idea of showing them a good place to eat with good food. Sad to say the food this time was embarrassingly poor. Some of the meals had country potatoes. There's almost nothing worse than cold potatoes and these were cold. How a... More

They have things like fresh fruit & specialty sandwiches. I... More

Shani's offers good food for good value in a quaint, artsy setting. The staff is always nice and the food is always quick. The menu offers something for just about every taste and is obviously prepared fresh; no fast-food shortcuts. Between the fish and the hand-painted tiles and walls, your eyes will be occupied. The downtown setting makes it a... More

My family walks up to Shani's almost every weekend that we are in town. I would say it is our favorite restaurant in the Tri-Lakes. The menu is huge, the cost is way cheap, you can sit outside or in, and the food is good. This is a real mom-n-pop place, the owner is usually there and I've only been... More

Beautiful dining areas with fountains, twinkling lights and a waterfall with fish! Amazing quality food at great prices! They have fresh salads, homemade soups & grilled or cold sandwiches. There cream of tomato soup and chicken salad sandwich is the best!!!
