My husband and I had lunch here last week. We had a sunny window seat to eat our delicious Indian lunch. The 2 men that run it were lovely & welcoming. We would highly recommend this cafe & will definitely be back.

Wanted somewhere we could have an early tasty mean. This hit the spot. My sister and I shared their tasting plate and the mixed vegetable curry was the stand out. Great value with nice staff.

Shiva offers a good range of curries, either eat in or takeaway. I found it a little pricey for the portions and the nan was average.

Healthy tasty Indian option in our village. Always tastes good. Always welcoming. Curry with chicken is usually my favourite but I also really like lamb Saag. The restaurant appears clean and organised which is very important to me.

Good choice of dishes with a good range of ingredients, well prepared and served with a smile. Very happy to use this place on a regular basis. Caters well for takeaways but would eat in when in the area especially at lunchtime.
