We were looking for a place to eat and we saw this one. We were pleasantly surprised. The tandoori chickens was great and the lamb curry was perfectly spiced. The naan was wonderful. Overall a great meal!

Good chicken curry, the spiciness was right on. We were disappointed at the stainless steel cafeteria tray that the food was served on. I guess Sundays have a very small menu with only about 5 main dish choices.

We ate Thanksgiving dinner here. Very friendly staff. The food was very good. Loved the garlic naan. We had samosa chat, lamb saag and fish tikka masala. All were yummy!

Initially we were not sure about this restaurant, now it is under new management. The food quality was excellent. We have eaten there multiple times and the quality was consistently good. We are vegetarians and they had a good variety of vegetarian options. This is the best food we had and is comparable to other high quality restaurants. The owner... More

This is all there is in this part of Hawaii Indian Food wise.They are not horrible they just DON'T GET IT on the quality thing so they are just another Kauai Average Restaurant and average in Kauai is not impressive. Shivalik could be a 4.5-5 Rating Restaurant if they would train themselves on what quality means and it doesn't mean... More

The only Indian restaurant on Kauai Island, and the food was good too. The food tasted like a typical Indian road side dhaba, which made the taste even more authentic. We came here for a couple of times during our stay on Kauai island, and were definitely happy with the food and service. I would advise the owner to make... More

Shivalik, 4-771 Kuhio Hwy., Kapaa, HI 96746, tel. 808-821-2333. We had a very nice meal at Shivalik. Our server, from Calcutta, was good. His helper, a young woman from Jordan, was delightful. The place is nicely decorated so it was pleasant. We shared everything and started with Mulligatawny soup ($4.50). It was good but kind of thin. We ordered one... More

Leave it to my Indian hubby to find the only Indian restaurant on the Island. Very friendly staff and really tasty food. Wine wasn't great, but that's unfortunately typical of an Indian restaurant. It's also more pricey than in California, but probably because the ingredients are all shipped from Cali and we were happy to pay. Nice vegetarian selection. If... More

Pricey, small portion sizes and very ordinary preparation. This place is thriving only because they're is no one else on the island. Requesting the owner to pick up some slack and either provide larger portions or reduce prices so people can at least enjoy your mediocre food. Improve preparation as well. Ambience and service are good though.
