We recently hosted our wedding anniversary party at Shiva's and I have to say that their food, service and decor was just fantastic. We booked the place almost 6 months ago when the party room was a real mess and so I was a little worried about how it would look like when the day finally arrived. Our server of... More

I dropped by for dinner on a lark as I walked by, and was very glad that I did. The food was excellent and very plentiful. Come with a hearty appetite. I had the full meal option and it was enough for two people. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

This is a place for Indian cuisine. I cannot remember having a better Indian-style meal from the Tandoori chicken with mint sauce to the vegetable korma, to the raita. Oh yes, and the naan. The wonderful, fluffy naan. This is a restaurant where you will want to linger and savor the flavor and the calm atmosphere. We were attending the... More

Wonderful family restaurant with the best Indian buffet you could want. If curry and chicken Tikka Masala are to your liking, you will love it here. Their buffet has many choices to eat for Vegetarians or meat eaters. Their deserts of rice pudding and tiramisu are scrumptious. You will definitely be going back for more. Convenient parking nearby. Reservations are... More

We have been to this restaurant many times over the past seven years or so but when we last visited were not as impressed. Our waitress was quite abrupt and seemed in a hurry to take our order. she told us that as what we were ordering was quite dry we should order a sauce which would be six dollars.... More

The price of their buffet is comparable to some other near by restaurants. Food is average and staff is rude. Now a single person served us with a smile and we had to ask for everything thrice before it was brought out. Don't bother ordering their masala tea. It is over priced ($3 for 2 ounces of tea). I suggest... More

I am no Indian food buff but have had plenty of it and I though it was pretty solid. The chicken pakoras were lean and nicely fried. Dipping Sauce was a little too creamy but still very good. They didn't have the chili chicken the night I went so the waitress suggested another chicken dish a few up on the... More

Services were not up to the mark. Food was ok. I will anytime prefer Sakoon which is in front of it than Siva. We ordered chicken biryani and it wasn't that great.

Been coming here for years for the lunch buffet. Always a large variety of both veggie and meat choices, and wonderful dessert selections.
