i was left confused as to what type of Indian restaurant this was in terms of the cuisine and the decor. We were missing Indian food so we searched this out. The quality of food was acceptable but the prices on the higher side.

My husband and I each had a salmon dish, very flavorful and tasty. My son had the chicken tikka masala and he enjoyed it to. Fast service, the wait staff was very nice and attentive to us. The garlic naan was a pass for us, was more like garlic powder on bread. There was an odor when walking into the... More

This Indian food was solid. Two colleagues and I shared a few dishes. Good flavor in lamb and shrimp curry. Naan was good. Fried appetizer was enjoyable. Beer was cold.

My family of six went here for lunch yesterday (3/29/17-Wednesday), it was the most horrible experience we ever had. My sister who was visiting from out of town, was looking forward to eating at Shiva's but the customer service was very disappointing. We arrived at 1pm, they had a very small buffet selection. And most of the food was very... More

No place could have been worse- the naan was stale , the chicken and dal tasteless. The service was as bad - we didn't eat the food and the waiter didn't even bother to ask why we didn't eat ?!

Met our Houston friends here. A very nice place. Eager to please, good service. The lamb with lentils was excellent, with a little spicy aftertaste. Vegetable dishes were all good. I definitely recommend this place. Reasonable prices.

Went out with family for a celebration, and decided on Indian food. This place was easy for all to meet. The restaurant was really cold, the smell of the toilets evident and the service from the beginning was a bit rushed. We ordered some starter platters and these were obviously warmed up and were a little flat and soggy, the... More

I was in a big hurry to eat lunch quickly and get back to a training class. I found a spot nearby and walked right in. The waiter told me i could sit by the window and go straight to the buffet. I was kind of surprised there weren't more choices as I recall eating there a few times before.... More

Curry sauces thin and not well-spiced. Garlic powder (not sliced or diced garlic) on garlic naan. Ma'am on the dry side. Staff not particularly nice. Glad I didn't see the kitchen.
