My wife and I recently ate here—on two different occasions—for lunch and breakfast. Both times the food was outstanding and the service was on the same level. For incredibly tasty home-style food, this is hard to beat. The gluten-free offerings are plentiful and tasty too....More

I had a delicious vegetable korma and samosas. Really yum! My mum had a tandoori chicken salad. She loved it. Great vibe at Shali's cafe.

Cheap and Cheerful from the outside, and it is. But the food is excellent. The Indian influence on the vege burger was fabulous. On a strip where the food is sooooo expensive and not that great - highly recommended.
