A great choice for vegetarian food. It was a little difficult to find, did not have many people inside and we were expecting average quality food, haven't had much luck with good Indian food outside of the SF bay area. But we were pleasantly surprised, the food was very good, the Navratan Korma is one of the best that I... More

During our 3 day stay in Kauai, we went to Shivalik twice for Lunch. They serve a Thali (Plate) for lunch, where you get to pick your entree, and the whole thing costs 9.99. The food was amazing, especially the Naans and the entrees. The Mango Lassi was good too, but we had to ask them to reduce the amount... More

We love Indian food and often find ourselves disappointed when trying places in the islands. Shivalik did not disappoint us, but instead it was a true delight. The lamb dishes are incredible, as are the curries. If you like naan, this is the place. Both the plain and garlic are a wonderful addition to any meal. We've forgotten the name... More

We ate here end of May (new management came aboard April 2), 2014. Please refer to reviews after that April date for accuracy. We eat a lot of Indian food back home and think we have a moderate frame of reference to which to compare. We ordered the Vegetable Samosas which were very good--crispy on the outside with flavorful potato-pea... More

We have visited this restaurant the past two trips to Kauai and have fully enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and customer service. We frequent Indian restaurants back home and my wife has years of experience cooking many of the same dishes at home. our latest favorites were the Murgh Tikka Masala and Murgh Vindaloo. The Garlic Naan was fresh, hot, and... More

We were drawn in by the wonderful aroma of Indian spices. The outside of this restaurant in the local shopping center is plain but the food certainly is not. For less than $10, a wonderful authentic tasting meal is served in no time.

this place is horrendous! Stay away. the owner is hardly ever there. he has businesses all over the u.s. and is a cheap skate. he lives in million dollar homes and he doesn't provide basic essentials in bathrooms like toilet paper, soap or napkins. I dread to even think what his kitchen looks like. the only thing that comes to... More

We were referred to this restaurant by our hotel concierge, since this is the only Indian restaurant on this island. We went there for lunch, and only the daily buffet was available. The waiter clearly indicated that order from the menu was only for a selected few dishes and it will take much time to prepare. The buffet was ready.... More

Palak paneer costed over $17.50 (absolute RIP OFF) and the quantity was very limited, I... More

We had the lunch buffet. I'm a big fan of Indian food and I thought the food here was excellent. I tried everything in the buffet and liked it all. The price was reasonable. It's nothing fancy just good food.
