Surprisingly good

We hesitated a bit to go in as it doesn't look like anything special on the outside. But I am so glad we went inside. I instantly felt like I was in India again. We had the lunch special - the food was very good and the naan was delicious. Try the chai masala for a true Indian experience.

We arrived on buffet night and it was excellent. Coming from Metro Vancouver, we're used to great Indian food and this place did not disappoint. It's a must go when in Kapaa, Kauai.

Great Indian food and one of my favorite restaurants on Kauai. Their lunch menu has meals starting at $9.95. I love their Chicken Tika Masala. Some people call in for take-out. They are offering Wed. night Buffet dinners for a different price. I recommend asking for Mild. Thank you Shivalik!

Love this place. The eggplant and matter paneer are extraordinary, but everything is really good, with generous portions. Good peshwari naan and onion kulcha, chicken tikka. My second favorite restaurant on Kauai, after Hukilau Lanai. Can't understand the negative comments about the service...we've always had attentive, warm, caring waiters here.

We love Indian food and it was such a treat to find Shivalik. Rich, but not oily or overly heavy. Quality ingredients. Attentive service without being brash or overbearing. The location is a bit strange as it is hard to spot in the strip mall, but don't let that stop you. Just down the way from Foodland in the same... More

If you crave Indian food while visiting Kauai, there isn't much in terms of choices. We visited this establishment for lunch and ordered the lunch Thali special. Not only was the food quality poor and watered down, the portions were laughable ! A few tiny pieces of lettuce, half of a raw naan, 3 teaspoons of watered down Daal and... More

We went to this tiny place for lunch. The lunch special was delicious! It was just the right amount of food. I had the saag paneer, which is my indian favorite. My wife had the eggplant. Both were spiced well and flavorful! The waiter was kind but reserved. We'l be back!!

Good tray of selected goodies for lunch. Not a big enough plate for some. Flavored just right and service quick and polite. I'd come back for dinner.

Ordered a Palak Paneer as To Go with the plan of having the same after checking into my resort.Was charged $16.95+ taxes.To my dismay-found ONLY 4 pieces of mini Paneers in the gravy.A total rip off and a place to be avoided.

This place was close to our hotel. Our first night here we saw the sign for their lunch special and made a mental note to come back. The lunch special is their take on plate lunch. Prices range from $9.95-12.95 per person and come with a main course (I got chicken tikka masala, hubby got chicken curry), rice, naan, curry,... More
