We were glad that we found an indian restaurant for dinner. Food was ok. Bhindi masala was ok. Tandoori roti as well. paneer kulcha had no flavor. We requested for dahi instead of raita, they were kind enough to accomodate however we were shocked to see $8 charge for plain yogurt. Raita was $3.50 that is made from yogurt. Did... More

This food was by far the best Indian food our family has ever had. The service was excellent as well. Very clean. Due to it's location, this restaurant may be overlooked. I wish we had had more time on our trip so we could have visited on Wednesday for the buffet and entertainment.

One of my best friends is an Indian food addict and so when we saw this restaurant in Kapaa we had to try it. We ordered Samosas, Chicken Tikka Masala, Coconut Shrimp Curry, Chicken Korma, Chicken Makhni (similar to butter chicken) and two other dishes I can't recall plus Naan bread. It was all excellent. My friend felt like she... More

My husband, my daughter and I all ended all up at the emergency room not even 30 minutes after walking out of there... Needless to say that we were all puking every 3 minutes and I will remember that pain forever! I also need to say that I wasn't fair to them because I should have walked there again and... More

I went here on a whim as the other place I was planning to go closed early this night. Food was good overall, portions were pretty good sized as well. I had chicken korma and I told them to make it super spicy - most places see a white guy and think "ehhh we'll put in an extra twist of... More

Worst customer service! The person at the front desk was very rude, arrogant and had NO etiquette at all on how to talk to a customer. We went on Sunday evening and he said they have buffet only. We needed food for to go, so we asked if we could order something outside of buffet. He said it depends on... More

Shivalik Indian Cuisine, located in Kapaa, is a short drive from Poipu, but well-worth it. Set in a shopping plaza along the Kuhio Highway, the restaurant is cozy & clean. Menu options are many & varied, but we chose out favorites, Chicken Tikka Masala & Palak Paneer. The Palak Paneer was the best we’ve ever had anywhere, with fresh paneer... More

Lovely owner, inviting feel and delicious food. I tried a lunch plate and they easily accommodated my vegan diet. I would have liked more heat in the food (chili, not temperature) as it was mild - but tasty.

My friend and I are both English with an Indian background so we were extremely disappointed with the poor service we received. We were barely acknowledged when we walked in to the pretty much empty restaurant and were served basic cutlery and dishes whilst others around were given gold and silver knives and forks. We were ignored throughout our whole... More
