We found the food, the service and the atmosphere most satisfactory and convivial. The waiter spent a considerable time talking to us in a friendly manner; he also made useful recommendations about the food and the range of lager beers. The lighting and the background music added to our evening's experience - and later we met the chef, who expressed... More

The staff here were very friendly and attentive. When I mentioned I couldn't have dairy the waitress made sure the kitchen and other staff were aware and suggested alternates and made sure to point out the sauces I could have. Not many places seem to pay that much attention. It was a good atmosphere and wasn't loud so you could... More

I've had the good fortune of having visited Mango Shiva several times over the last decade. There is no question that this is the premier Indian destination in this city. The best part of this restaurant is that they have mastered the art of welcoming in Western cuisine and fused with authentic East Indian flavours. The Butter Chicken Naacos, Lamb... More

pros: in downtown calgary so good location. popsicle chicken entree item is amazing. cons: Waitress assumed that mains don't come till entrees completed. One person was vegetarian and couldn't eat the entree and just kept waiting. Naan arrived burnt but reading other people's reviews it looks like this is common. You can see what the chefs are upto and it's... More

We moved to Alberta from the UK in July last year and we were convinced that we were doomed to a life without a good curry, and how right we were. Mango Shiva isn't good, it's AMAZING! The staff were extremely friendly and very accommodating. They offer a small, yet high quality menu that will not disappoint. The peshwari naan... More

Greeted in a friendly manner. Butter Chicken, Lamb Chops, and Naan bread (slightly burned) were mildly spiced and not very warm in temperature. A bit pricey for the quality.

The restaurant has very lovely decor, which I liked very much. It is very dark in there though! The bathrooms are downstairs and in need of a little attention. The food was good, not as spicy as I'm used to with traditional Indian dishes. I had the chickpea curry. Was very good! We bought rice for the table and were... More
