Having seen the reviews for Mango Shiva, our family decided to have lunch at this place. The place was modern and the service was good taking into account that we were having a buffet lunch. The taste in the food was not amazing and this maybe due to the fact that it was a buffet

Visited this place a few times now, their lunch buffet is great while the dinner menu is a bit pricey it is certainly worth a visit. The real highlight of this place is their service team. I usually go with coworkers and the past two or three times we had the same server, who really impressed our group. I can't... More

The buffet is a great deal with lots of choice. Really good Indian food is hard to find in Calgary so I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered this gem in the heart of down town. Will definitely be going back.

Place is in heart of Calgary. Surrounding is excellent but I do not like food quality. Perhaps taste was made to suit locals.

If you like Indian food then this restaurant is a must - we've been several times and the food is always first class. The staff as very friendly, service good, and cocktails are amazing! We can't wait for our next visit to Calgary so we can return to this restaurant - not to be missed!

I went after the lunch rush and had excellent service - the restaurant was mostly empty. Food was great, portion sizes were good, and prices fair. This is located on historic Stephens Ave and is easy to find. If you are in the area and want some good Pakistani/Indian food i recommend it.

Wonderful Indian food, and staff are patient with kids in your party (thank you). Be sure NOT TO MISS the Indian Lemonade. This is their take on lemonade and it is absolutely divine with muddled ginger, fresh lemon, salt, pepper, simple syrup & soda. Order if you're eating spicy dishes...it will cut the spice down with just one sip.

It was a great dinner. The food was different and tasty. My husband swore he would never eat curry again after a bad past experience. He was singing their praises after dinner was over.
