“Best Indian food in Kauai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2010

Shivalik was a welcome surprise on Kauai! We missed Indian food on Kauai as there were no Indian restaurants. Then two opened up one right after the other. I won't mention the name of the other one but the food was NOT good at all and was way way over priced. Then Shivalik opened and beat our expectations. Then menu is extensive and range of the cooking is masterful. The Palak Paneer and Malai Kofta are my favorite along with the Garlic Naan. They have a great lunch buffet for $13 that they switch up everyday so there is something new to experience every time you visit. I have had some of the best Indian food around the world and can honestly say that Shivalik ranks in my top 10.

Delicious food found no where else on the island. Friendly staff. We have been dreaming of having a fine Indian food restaurant on Kauai.

“We are fortunate to have a restaurant of this caliber on Kauai, much less Kapaa.”

While I don’t consider myself an authority on Indian Food, I do know great tasting food.
I would suggest that Shivalik Indian Cuisine ranks easily in the top ten restaurants on Kauai.

“Please don't waste your money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2010

We ate a late lunch at Shivalik Indian Cuisine. Upon our arrival they were removing the buffet, which looked like it had been sitting a few days. We believe that our EXTREMELY DRY FOOD was reheated from the buffet. My meal was curry in which I believe was priced around $20.00 or so served without rice and arrived in a bowl the size of a small desert bowl. Our best guess was less than 1/4 cup in the bowl. We though at first that their was a mistake but the staff assured us it was not a mistake. The staffing was not rude directly to us but was very disorganized and complacent. They complacent that there were a few customers in the restaurant and went on with their repeated personal cell phone calls, throughout our meal in which I did eat but a few bites. $60.00 for lunch and we left the food behind. My husband did try to chock down his chicken.
