I've dined at Shiva several times and the food has always been consistently good. When you order your food you can specify whether you want it mild, medium or hot which is great because I don't like food that is too spicy. The decor is quite basic, but the service is friendly and efficient, and combined with the wonderful food,... More

The butter chicken was amazing!! When you first walk into the restaurant its a little off putting, but stay and give it a chance.

I have a passion for spicy food. I love dishes that make my taste buds tingle with super-hot spiciness. And so I am also a big fan of Indian food that hits the spicy spot. Shiva Indian Restaurant certainly satisfies me, and I have eaten there several time. The food is delicious and authentically Indian, served on traditional plates and... More

The food is gorgeous and I love curries especially the flavoursome Achari curry. The menu is very varied and servings really good. The staff are friendly, wines reasonably priced. I love the paintings on the walls. There have been several 'Bollywood' nights and these have been fantastic. Another special night with local artist David Newman who has a lovely easy... More

We only had one course plus rice, naan, chutney and raita, The food was delicious and we loved the complementary pappadams which I think had fenugreek seeds (or similar) in them. I was wishing we had more courses as the meals we had were very good all round. Reasonable prices (bit higher than in the city) with pleasant service and... More

Several times a year we travel south from Sydney, and on the homeward journey we stop at Shiva in Mittagong. We love this place. It is spacious and quiet with a great menu. I love the lamb cutlets. The chef has been there 19 years and is always happy to discuss the dishes with me. He doesn't necessarily follow regional... More

Just passing through on a Sunday night looking for a quick meal and stumbled across this Indian Restaurant. The service was beyond pleasant and the drinks list extensive. The food is authentic and the spices a bit on the mild side, not wild, which suited us down to the ground. If we are ever in Mittagong again looking for a... More

Stayed overnight in Mittagong, had a craving for curry. The restaurant was almost empty but it was a wednesday night in a country town. It was one of the best Indian meals I have had in a long time. I had the samosa's as a starter, they did not come with the usual green cooling sauce, but after that intial... More
