I should start off by saying we are not massive Indian cuisine fans, but happened to be in the area and needed to get the kids some food... We came in on a Sunday evening - it was advertised that there was a buffet and we thought it might allow everyone in our group to get something they liked... And... More

Had a very enjoyable meal last night at Shivalli. We all chose a thali, but they still served separate popperdoms with pickles and a starter before it arrived. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Excellent value for money. Two of us had the buffet lunch and a Lassi each- the bill was £13.80. I couldn't get the same quality at this price anywhere in London or Bedford or Leicester. Veg biryanis, sambhar potato "curry" Dosa and puri papadom and pickles etc etc and an Indian dessert. Great stuff. Having said that, I went there... More

Food was ok. It's cheap and cheerful. We had buffet meal. The buffet counters had desert spoons in the food, and spoons fallen into the food pots...not great! For hygiene purposes I would suggest to the management they need to use proper large serving utensils rather than desert spoons. Staff very friendly therefore given them a 4*. Overall would recommend:)

This is a great place. I had the buffet on a Saturday night and it was delicious - all the food was hot and there was a great variety for an even better price! It's rare to find South Indian food these days so it was a delicious treat. I would recommend Shivalli to anyone and hope to return there... More

Also the sweet, phel poori was pathetic and they mentioned they were for Diwali special. we went as group to celebrate Diwali this year in Leicester and based on Trip advisor... More
