“Great Service - with a personal touch, food consistent.”
Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Great service from when you are seated until you leave. You are treated like regulars & your name used where possible. Food is always consistent...I've ordered the same meals previously & they are always good.
Also nice for there to be a bit space between tables so you can actually get up if necessary - this doesn't happen often at other restaurants.
Bill splitting handled with a smile - not a problem.
The only negative is it can get quite noisy. This has improved since the renovations but it still can be difficult to hear others talk if there are more than 4 of you.

“Shanikas on Viale”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I believe I can say this is the best restaurant in Pakenham without any chance of contradiction. Always good food, excellent service and well patronised by locals - always the best recommendation.
