Wanted somewhere we could have an early tasty mean. This hit the spot. My sister and I shared their tasting plate and the mixed vegetable curry was the stand out. Great value with nice staff.

Shiva offers a good range of curries, either eat in or takeaway. I found it a little pricey for the portions and the nan was average.

Think this place might become a staple go to ... Ordered a chicken vindaloo. Spiciness was perfect. Naan a little dry but fine. Looking forward to dining in.

Shiva Indian restaurant has been feeding me with excellent Indian delicacies and curries for the best part of 20 years. Arun and Sachin consistently turn out delicately spiced and flavored Indian food of an exceptional standard, from a delicious butter chicken to a more robust goat curry, shiva always impresses! Eat in, take away, home delivery and even catering through... More

Healthy tasty Indian option in our village. Always tastes good. Always welcoming. Curry with chicken is usually my favourite but I also really like lamb Saag. The restaurant appears clean and organised which is very important to me.

Good choice of dishes with a good range of ingredients, well prepared and served with a smile. Very happy to use this place on a regular basis. Caters well for takeaways but would eat in when in the area especially at lunchtime.

Disappointed with the standard of a restaurant that displayed lots of plates and reviews indicating they knew how to cook Indian food. Curry bland, lukewarm, rice was dry and crisp, lacking flavour and the naan bread was disgraceful. We had takeaway. Felt like taking it back but could not be bothered with the hassle. Just decided to never go back.... More
