BEST 50 CURRY HOUSES (Shivalli was mentioned as one of the best 50 Curry Houses)

Karen describes this as 'a vegetarian Indian restaurant with an emphasis on dishes from Karnataka province in southern India'. All the dishes are freshly prepared, the highlight being the delicious dosas - huge savoury pancakes with spicy fillings. 'Even committed carnivores have been known to rave about this place,' she jokes...

i came here based solely on the TripAdvisor reviews and had a group of pals with me, apprehensive at first (not usually one for vegetarian food) we were not disappointed and indeed were utterly blown away by some amazing food, great modern decor and exceptional service that was attentive and informative.

A great menu is chocked full of unique dishes, we went for the Thali which left us stuffed and totally sated, washed down with helpings of Cobra beer.

Can't recommend this place enough, in a dire city, make sure you check it out.

We ate here one night last week. The food was fab and the staff were very nice. Would highly recommend you visit this restaurant if you want a different Indian experience. Although a vegetarian menu the food was absolutely fabulous and we were stuffed on leaving. Very pleasant atmosphere.

We are regular diners at Shivalli and have a great experience every time - whether it's because our favourite dishes are of consistent quality or because we're encouraged to try something different which is equally as good. The service is friendly and attentive at just the right level and we always feel welcome as soon as we walk through the door. The restaurant is quite small and personal and the atmosphere is relaxed, suitable for couples, families, business people and friends.

I read the reviews of this place and as I was staying nearby I decided to give it a go. I was not disappointed. The restaurant is not where you would expect to find fine dining. The restaurant is next to a kebab house and first impressions from the street were not promising. Once I went through the door it was clear that this was no ordinary place. There is a wonderful understated atmosphere. The floors, walls and tables are all wooden; but for the various artifacts you would be forgiven for thinking you were in some Californian country burger bar. I was shown to my seat, having been greeted almost as soon as I came through the door. The two waiters were very attentive and service was excellent. As one of the reviewers has already observed the prices are very reasonable. The owner may become tempted to raise his prices and make the place posh but if he did, it would be a mistake. It is the honest simplicity of the place and indeed the staff that give the restaurant its charm. I decided to have the fixed menu at £7.95. You cannot go wrong however with whatever you order. The food is so fresh and I saw what was being delivered to other tables and everything looked wonderful. This is no ordinary curry house. This is fine dining yet home cooking at the same time. The Michelin starred restaurants tend to be a bit up themselves and I wonder whether the Michelin people have ever thought of visiting a place like Shivalli. If they did I think they just might give it a star. I would! Highly recommended. No meat but licensed. Well, you can't have everything but when your eating food this good, who cares?!
