Truly great Indian food, though it is served family style and can get spendy ordering everything separately. I will have to check back and try the buffet on Wednesday or Friday.

This is apparently the only Indian Restaurant on the island, and thus was a nice change to what we'd been eating other places. The curry, biryani and naan were tasty. The Roti bread was tasteless. They mixed up which of the orders we wanted hot vs. not (for our 8 year old daughter), but upon telling them, they quickly created... More

The Christmas Day dinner buffet was average at best - the highlight being the standard chicken tikka masala that nearly any Indian restaurant worldwide can get right. This restaurant had Christmas Day monopolized in Kauai as you can imagine there was not much open that day - therefore, we really had no choice and being Indian we thought we'd proudly... More

We were a party of 4 with grown up kids grabbing lunch prior to heading back from our week long trip to Kauai. The reviews concerned us but we decided to try it anyway since it was the last day of the trip. The lunch buffet was belowaverage with naan undercooked. When the bill came, yes you guessed it, there... More

That was so rude behaviours we faced in our life till now. He must... More

We enjoyed some delicious Indian food, but found this place to be very pricey. They serve good food, and its a buffet on Wed and Friday evenings. The service is also good.

We were 4 adults and 2 toddlers. The manager is the rudest person on this earth. He will hear your conversation. He is racist. Just interested in 18% tip. When we tried giving suggestions his answer was "I don't care If you like food and service or not I just want tip." He started shouting and fighting. We were shocked... More

We ordered a spicy paneer curry which tasted well with the Naan. Was unhappy when they tried to point out our 2 year old kid for being loud for other guests. Also I am alright for charging for a side of onions and pickles only if it is commensurate with the rest of the items

Obviously, Indian food is supposed to be spicy. However, when the seasonings overpower most of the other flavors, it comes across as low quality being masked by too much spice. We dined on a Wednesday evening which is buffet night. We were not told if the regular menu was an option. Vegetarians have many choices both with the buffet and... More

On both Wednesday nights and Friday nights, Shivalik has an unbelievable buffet. There are 5 delightful vegetarian dishes and at least 3 curry type meat dishes, naan bread, rice, and a dessert. The food is simply excellent. So tasty and so delicious. Sam and his server James both have the hugest smiles and cannot wait to be of service.
